BREAK / DESCANSO / HLÉ reflects upon the current paradigm shift in human relations. Performance is aimed at identifying social patterns, learned habits, codes, demands and needs defining communication to help understand our reality.
What is leading us to destroy everything, both ourselves and the planet? We consume and drive aggressively, and we apply physical, verbal, conceptual and social violence. We socialize within a simple binary pattern: YES/NO, CHEAP/EXPENSIVE, LIKE/DISLIKE.
That’s why we aim to stop, to rest, to slow down, to take distance to be able to look from outside. And to play in this visual and performing experimental lab.
