Hasta el infinito y más allá

Creation 2021 - In process

Dance / physical theatre

Humanity has always been fascinated with death. It's been a running theme for philosophers and theologians, leaders and dictators, authors and artists for eons. Honestly, I don't think it's going away…

 

The solo is a musing on mortality, the inconceivable black hole of fatality, the inevitable undercurrent that accompanies all humans through life. It’s a reflection on the way we move through this empirical life, the realisations and insights that impact us, from our birth to old age and beyond. It endeavours to be a dramatic journey in which every human can see their existence reflected. 

 

The solo raises the questions: How do humans deal with impending death? How do I personally relate to the fatality of my own existence? Where does this 'black hole' come from and what do I do with its weight as I walk through life?
