The More You Dance the More You Get is a great work about a critical, often misunderstood, issue, acting as a metaphor for the imprisonment of women in its various global forms.” Richard Pettifer –

The work is routed on the idea of the forced use of the body as a commodity for sale, with reference to the sexual exploitation of women. A faceless person on stage, who is forced to expose, sell and resell a body again and again. Performed with a highly physical movement language the work succeeds to combines intimacy and humour, movement and sound, risk and surprise.
