First Prize of Solo Contest at 11MASDANZA
International Contemporary Dance Festival of the Canary Islands, Spain (2006)
"Difference. Change. Variation. Perspective. A gesture just a minute before. So simple…!
The lizard’s skin is based on a question about the narrow border between the versatile and what we think that defines us. A female character let us see two opposite and at the same time complementary sides of herself, without abandoning her initial gestures.
