BEYOND

As the dance progresses and as fatigue sets in, on the very threshold of exhaustion, the dancers empty themselves, empty themselves of their air, gradually remove layers and free themselves completely. BEYOND challenges this collective force of action on which the survival of individuals depends. In a visceral spasm, the performers switch between vulnerability and relentlessness. A heady rhythm emerges, mixed with impulses of the heart, revealing the depth of moments of abandonment.
