In White

In White is an invitation to an encounter of an intimate and sensitive space, in a sharing of a stage-bed between dancers and audience. A sensorial experience that crosses the Night, between sleep and vigil, finding silence and the suspension of time, in a very particular journey, giving space to the constant transformation of the moment. In this play there is an encounter between childhood and adulthood, where the unknown, fear, and creativity will be experienced.

For over a year, choreographer Marina Nabais worked with different audiences and formats on the idea of Night. In the countless trainings, interviews and consultations she conducted, it became clear that Night encompasses the unknown, fear and loneliness. But there was no lack of associations to the renewal of energy, creativity and transformation.

In White is a dance performance that returns the result of these relationships. The sensorial is brought about by interactivity, by the proximity of the set, and by familiar sounds.
