Nomination to Storm of the Year Award 2013 (Polonia)


This creation made mostly with/from the dance material of the performers themselves, had a very clear intention from the very beginning of the process: to challenge the limitations of the performers, both physically and emotionally. The natural tendency of human beings is often to go to safety, and to protect from painful or unpleasant situations. That is where fear grows its roots. But by doing that unconscious move, we also miss the chance to explore and to experience something surprisingly positive.

Knowing those mechanisms, why they take place, and being aware of their consequences, makes us totally bound to making choices firmly. During that creative process, we can end up realising that maybe the most powerful enemy of our actions could be our own person. Mirroring and confronting this discovery brings us to the result of this creation: a performance full of risk, humanity and questions… many questions that every individual has to answer while facing their own private enemy.
