Description

Shadows move in the dark. The universe is heavy, loaded, hostile. A web of slowness and rumbling underlines hesitation.

Like new forms of life, bodies unfold gropingly. One [of the] creature(s) disarticulates itself in space, observes and tames in search of anchors.

The arid environment seems new, suspended, out of time. The codes are foreign and the creature(s) navigate the darkness and halos of light trying to appropriate dissonant reals.

Little by little, proposals emerge, imagined from the constraints. Doubt and curiosity drive space exploration and the creature(s) are discovered, multiple and deformed.

Then begins a search made of detuned rhythms, subsidence, ephemeral alliances and questioning, always, of the proposed form.

Creatura is a creative project that was born during the pandemic, and which was first explored through the form of a short film. Filmed in 2022, the film-dance project sets seven performers in motion who give birth to a creature emerging from the darkness to appropriate the unknown.

The play of lights sublimates a gesture from Boogaloo (popping, waving, robot, etc.), presenting street dance in an unusual and hypnotizing form.

Creatura in its integral form includes a short video part and a stage part in order to create an innovative dance experience. Through movement and lights, the piece explores the concept of genesis in a post-apocalyptic universe.
