"WAITING FOR ICARUS"

A duet piece which houses together dance, text, sound and objects. The artists on the stage use all these elements to create a performance where the distinction between dance and theatre loses its traditional approach. A stream of meanings made by clear choreography and dialogues alternate each other through complex composition. The artists inhabit the world made of multidimensional expressions manefesting through different images, stories and sounds.

"CHAMELEON"

A solo performance filled of poetry and metaphors and embodied by physical movement, music and text. It follows a  journey to the lands full of social clichés, demands and fixed gender roles. Through the whole journey the character stays true to herself, but she keeps changing her outer look and social behaviour in order to adjust to the new environment.
