“PEEP BOX 350o, the flannel soldiers, is inspired by the” new resistance “, this youth of countries in conflict (called the third world) that come together to challenge the established power. This work does not attempt to advocate violence or a political statement or position. Simply seeks to capture the poetics that emanates from these young people, that despite noting that the past does not count and the future does not appear, they manage to find their energy in chaos. And alone, living in a continuous present, they weave and unweave alliances, they initiate strange coexistence, they venture to the bond, but also to the rivalry. They are protected and exposed. They look for ways to meet, to relate and to understand each other. They resist and resisting they reinvent a universe, draw virgin carto- graphies, inaccurate maps of their destiny and that of others.
* Optional: with a choir of 20 volunteers
The intention is to be able to move the core work (7 dancers) to national and international theatres and halls and prepare the body of 20 performers or volunteers locally in each town, city and country.
This modality allows the work to be more involved with the communities that host each Theatre. In this case, the format of a 60-hour workshop that can be distributed between 7 to 10 days must be applied, involving a diverse group of volunteers with the company s cast to develop a contextually unique version of the production.
