LIMIT AND CRISIS Choreographic Residence by Flocks and Shoals

As a collective, we seek to develop collaboration between each member of Flocks and Shoals, based on the research of the theme “Limit and Crisis”.

The process of creation will be based on the recognition and overcoming of limits _ mentally and physically _ understanding the multiple conception of edge towards different social contexts.

There is the interest of putting in dialogue the concepts of “Mara”, Indian term for principle of death and mischief, chain of rebirth and suffering towards processes of “Catharsis” (from the Greek) where an extreme change in emotion occurs through the release of pent-up energy.

Transposing this relation to the collective’s experience in order to connect with the visceral matter and psychic transformation, we intend to draw the morphology of living emotions and, from the permanency of the group, generate a new suspended space on stage.
