Soul mechanisms/ Journey in the sky (duration 28 min)
Watch: 14th May at 10pm UTC
DESCRIPTION: The piece is a reflection on the situation where two entities are in perfect communication even when the physical or real contact is not always enabled. It is a story of a man and a woman who are connected with an extremely strong bound. They share tension and passion in a love-and-hate relationship while both of them suspend in an intangible and dreamy world. The bodies create a physical interpretation of this relationship and the dancers are using their own physical conditions to develop a movement language able to represent this idea.
