Dive (Mergulho)

Dive (Mergulho)

Mergulho (Dive)

Fallen to an aquatic world, they move ineffably in a dense, clear atmosphere as if it was their first autonomous moment. One would guess a confident suffocation, followed by improbable movements, a mobility reinvented in a breath taking group choreography. When confronted with the concept of fear, water is considered one of the most fascinating elements. Submerged in this troubled time illusion, the bodies swim stiff and fondle one sole will: to breathe their freedom.
