Ella is a dance theatre performance project, devised collaboratively by Lotus Contemporary Performing Arts and ProyectoTEATRO, that challenges the patriarchal "values" placed on women and womanhood since the forming of our modern society. By dismantling the ideas that have long-shaped and most often oppressed women - like femininity, motherhood, and feminism - Ella rebuilds the perception of women through the perspective of themselves.

Artistic directors Melissa Villarreal and Luis Ordaz Gutiérrez blend theatre and contemporary dance to build scenes of reflection, anger, and love.
