The Shadows on aPearl's Skin

Butoh dance

This duo is the result of the meeting between Brazilian artist Fernando Rocha and the American Joan Laage. The umbilical relationship between the female and her offspring. The separation. The search for the other. The isolation. The look at oneself, the skin, the recognition in the difference, the colors, the sounds, the smells, the strangeness in the world, the culture shock. Explores how our body and psyche change as we traverse different cultures and environments. The ever-growing city buildings, the contrasts between the shadows and the brightness in each.
