You can snatch everything from a person except his dream, his imagination, his illusion. Stories are subject to any kind of change over time. But how can we remix body, memory or an opinion?
Four artists find themselves in an imaginary space and decide to appropriate it. They want to redefine it and tell it in their own way - and this in a world that is constantly changing.
The Remix examines how we can rewrite our history, individually or collectively – according to our own imagination – and what means we use to construct or dream this imaginary world... The ideas are there, but conflicts arise, and different or shared points of view come to pass.
The remix is a strategy of musical composition and innovation. The main characteristic of a remix is that it appropriates and changes other materials to create something new. The company translates this practice into dance and choreography, because the remix includes the coexistence of different artists in one and the same work. It facilitates evolution and development and opens up the possibility of a potentially endless creative process. The material to be remixed rests with the artists, just like a say in shaping an entire society. "But what can we do when everything has already happened? History is past. How about we revisit it!?"
