DREAM IS THE DREAMER

Dance performance by Catarina Miranda

From a fictive landscape a collective imaginary world emerges. This dream, in which we are the hero and heroine, starts in darkness. In the south, east and west, behind the walls of the theater, there is a world, science buildings, factories, the ocean and other continents. A figure in the attic plays with fire and then evaporates, an elevator compresses bodies to a mass. One body, trapped for a long time in a plastic bag, starts dancing – maybe they emerged from a club, maybe they are the phantasy of a Shaman. We move between utopia and apocalypse.
