A BEGINNING is a journey from darkness to light. It’s a piece for 5 dancers/singers equipped with portable lights who we hear breathing, walking and talking. They explore the relationship between movement, voice and light. Where choreography meets musical composition, this piece dissociates the body that sings from the body that moves. They develop a physical and movement practice that allows them to embody two movements in a single body; the movement that sounds (singing) and the movement that is seen. A beginning #16161D constructs a theatrical narrative about the eternal dialectic between the individual and the collective, in order to imagine new ways of relating.

#16161D or eigengrau,

is the color we see in conditions of absolute darkness. This color, which is not black but a dark gray, is a kind of optical illusion generated by our retina that, on the other hand, in conditions of light, is capable of perceiving pure black in completely black objects.
