Concept
Drama can turn into comedy in a matter of seconds; any tragic scenario frequently borders irony.Using absurdity and expressionism, the body is used as the fun-pain-laughter and exaggeration tool, letting abstraction show from a frustrated and unfinished movement along the piece.Lead by a conflictive attitude, the characters will fail to deliver their daily actions, laughing at themselves, dancing on their own unveiling their flaws, their bad habits and even fear of death. Beggars, heros, popular folk songs and chickens.This work is a collaboration with the artist Daniela Presta. Duration: 60 min.
