Our work for this new dance creation it is constituted along various investigation lines. On one hand, the senses themselves as main source to acknowledge them and their recognition in their primal meaning. On the other side, the search for the meaning of the senses in the current society.

Do they keep their primary utility for the conservation of the species or, do they have acquired different meanings of social relationship?

We also contemplate a different use of the senses to capture beauty and if the contemplation of ¨the beautiful ¨ brings us pleasure and We are excited by it or it is only an aesthetic issue. Already Plato and Aristotle presented the paradox between objectivity and subjectivity in beauty.

And all of this take place, not only through the language of dance but also of images, texts, music. In the final analysis, a work for curious minds in which every concerned person will take their own place without leaving questions unanswered and in which they will use the senses to search for beauty.

We start from the museum hall where the tapestries are exhibited. A very simple and adaptable space where images will be projected, creating the magic we need.

“All senses, sight included, are extensions of the sense of touch, the senses are but elongations of the skin tissue, and all sensory experiences are ways of touching.” (Juhani Pallasma)
