“Thoughts have wings and no one can prevent them from flying”
Averroes, Arab philosopher XII century
“Very expressive moments. Awaken and attentive bodies walk on a scale of balanced movements where none of the movements escape from the other’s reaction. We have seen maturity in both performers bodies […] a show you enjoy each moment.” by Arwa Itani (Assafir Newspaper)
A piece that departs from immigration as a reality of our current society and creates images and situations that look for abstractions of the emotions, sensations and impressions of what could be an internal process of adaptation to a new surrounding. A conditioning space where the body’s architecture adapts to changes, accepts, refuses, searches, discovers and rediscovers itself, imagines…
Leaving a city, arriving to a new one. Beginning to discover and realise new circumstances. A long process in which one finds obstacles to confront, new frontiers to cross and where expectations seem to blur and become invisible.
