Title of the work- Fragments
Choreographer’s name- Nadina Zappia
Schools’ name- WHSPA
Dancers’ year group(s)- Year 9 Company Z
Program note – WHSPA Year 9 Company Z drew inspiration from the renowned Spanish artist Pablo Picasso’s masterpiece, “Weeping Woman,” to create their piece titled “Fragments.” This painting portrays the immense suffering experienced by women impacted by the devastating events of the Spanish Civil War. The fragmented and angular forms in the artwork symbolise the shattered psychological state of these individuals, emphasising the profound fragmentation and brokenness of their emotions. Through distorted features, irregular shapes, and exaggerated expressions reminiscent of Picasso’s painting, “Fragments” captures the anguish, grief, and despair endured by these women.
