Production Details / Press Releases

We are porous creatures and easily absorb external energies. In Forcefields we will investigate the possibility that, as human beings, we each have an energetic force field, and that we can consciously investigate this specific individual field to protect ourselves emotionally, spiritually and therefore physically from the noise, oppression, coerced rules, traffic of expectations and pressures coming from society. In an attempt to push through external oppression and conditioning in order to co-exist harmoniously, Forcefields is a meditative ritual to expand and strengthen both our barriers and our bonds collectively as human beings through movement, privileging and establishing new connections that arise naturally within the group. Can we manifest a force field collectively? Is it permeable? Can we pierce it? Does it have elasticity? Can we penetrate the boundaries?
