SAFE

SAFE

 

GROTOX (in 2009) and ENDLESS (in 2012) are creations that, viewed through a magnifying glass, bring us closer to the lack of dignity in human relations. In the first creation the search for the eternal beauty and the confrontation with the difference, with the deficiency, with the grotesque and with the botox give emphasis to the scene. In the second creation the Holocaust is only one of the most barbaric results of antisemitism. In both creations, prejudice, discrimination and hostility are present.

SAFE (2019) will be a journey through paths that are not necessarily the ones we chose, but the ones we have the option to escape through, with a (false) certainty that we will find a better world.

As in the previous two pieces, dance, video and live music continue to be present as a solid foundation to position ourselves for the future. In this last work, that makes up the trilogy of dignity and human relations (or lack of), to observe or act will always be an individual decision.
