The theatre is empty, the show is over and the scenography has already been set down. Everyone left for a break and on the stage there is nothing but a lights bar hanging low, with the projectors still on. A woman enters the scene, revealing her presence only under the light of the projectors. In a period of time that seems to stretch out to infinity, she develops a dance of slow and meditated movements. She holds onto the bar and it brings her up in the air, compelling her to remain suspended and to dance despite the heat that comes out of the projectors, the electric wiring and the height that separates her from the floor. There is no mattress, there’s only darkness under her feet.
By maximizing and theatrically treating risk and fragility, we can understand these qualities as part of everyday life.
By accepting risk as a dance partner, difficult and adverse situations can be controlled and become choreography.
