In White is an invitation to a meeting of an intimate and sensitive space, sharing a stage bed between two dancers and the public. A sensory experience that pass trough the night, between sleep and wakefulness, with silence and suspension of time, in a very private journey, giving space to the constant transformation of the moment. In this play there is a meeting between childhood and adulthood where the unknown, fear and creativity will be experienced.
For over a year, choreographer Marina Nabais has worked with different audiences and formats on the idea of Night. In the countless formations, interviews, and auscultations she conducted, it became evident that the Night contains the unknown, the fear, and the loneliness. But there was no shortage of associations with energy renewal, creativity and transformation.
In White is a dance show that returns the result of these relationships. The sensory is brought by interactivity, proximity to the scenery and familiar sounds.
