Performance synopsis

A performative solo project referring to identity as the object of a continuous and complex shaping process. The essence of the performance is to create a bond with the viewers by taking their presence into account throughout each act of the performance. The aim of the action is to reconstruct the habits of feeling by building greater layers of empathy and acceptance. Choreography and speech draw attention to the body – which, being socially shaped, also exerts a great influence on the social sphere.
