Gazing at a landscape can alter our perception. We lose track of time and even of ourselves. Body and landscape become one. 

With a dream-like atmosphere, the trio of dancers in Manuel Rodríguez’ piece subtly evolve from slow-motion strolls to a delicate entwinement. A white sustainable construction is a landscape of bodies, a meeting place, to contemplate and to be contemplated.

Choreography and direction: Manuel Rodriguez
Performance: Cora Panizza, Núria Guiu Sagarra and Manuel Rodríguez
Lighting design: Horne Horneman
Supported by:  Graner Centre de Creació, Fundació Catalunya la Pedrera, Festival Sâlmon.
