… a performance of rhythms, akin to our lives.
It’s a collective creation based on a reading of texts written by Andrei Tarkovsky and Matsuo Bashô. By manipulating matter and materials, we’ve created a performance of visual poems, where images and live music come together in contemplation.
In a world of visual chaos and constant conflict, we embark on a journey in search of images and rapport between the performers and the audience, who are invited to become space and time travellers. Symbolic narratives using poetic images together with matter and material are built around their memories. This multidisciplinary approach, in the form of a laboratory, brings us a rhythmic performance.
And the relationship between the puppeteer and matter brings us the age of images and poetry.
“Poetry is an awareness of the world” Andrei Tarkovsky
