As if fantasy would become bodies, places, energy and movement. Beyond the stage, elsewhere, where everything is played, an intimate universe, where the bodies are expressions of the soul and its desires. A series of six scenes, a unique choreographic and cinematographic vision, almost secret. Far from the logic of exhibitionism, before our eyes a dance of seduction and bewitchment plays out, where we lose our souls and bodies in a series of moving tableaux.
Through the body, the self becomes an object of transference of desire and chaos. A physical translation of what is violently played out in the deepest place of the being, something behind the decor, the image is forcing us into introspection. And the bodies through dance become animated to penetrate and pierce the spectator. And these tableaux weave a net between the universal and the singular, where the fetishes of our soul play between themselves, repeating rituals of desire, power, silence and suffering.
