Inspired by the poem written by Stella Díaz Varín (Chile) and Radio Ensueño (Spain), the work is a search for the fears linked to two essential acts of life: birth and death, and how we relate to our ancestors.
A dialogue on stage between the earthly world, where fear dwells, and the divine, mediated by a spiritual guide who prepares the course of everyday life to make us connect with the celestial plane, where our ancestors reside.
A manifesto to remind us that we are not alone, but in constant dialogue with what we do not see. Only the vibration beyond the palpable will lead us to the healing of the emotion captured in the body, and to be able to live.
Directed by Aïda Colmenero Dïaz, the work arises from everyday life in Senegal as a stage for creation and is inspired by elements of Senegalese heritage dance, to be revisited from a contemporary perspective.
