Pressure Fields stages different processes of becoming as abstract movements and examines Dance’s capacity to create new imaginaries in a world of crisis. Coexisting with theatrical smoke, and departing from liquefaction as an action plan, the dancing bodies activate dissolving forms in order to open up the spaces and possibilities that a systemic collapse might entail. Through pressure and release, a violet light and sound frequency activating the crownchakra, the piece seeps out into a poetic journey towards a coexistence between human, environment, bodies and things.
