ANTHROPOMORPHA is a dance/performance solo based on the relationship between nature/animals and human beings. It is about our influence on the actual critical state of society. This piece – with an autobiographical point of view – reflects about the actual human condition on the planet and the state of the correlation humans-animals.
The work takes look at the past-present-future of mankind and its bonding to other (animal) bodies to re-imagine our place in the world, making a statement about what it is to be a human being (dis)connected to the ancestral wisdom. ANTHROPOMORPHA dares a statement on interdependence, mutualism and togetherness, it is an attempt to embody our animality and to rethink our place in the world.
