Based on one of the Tales of the Brothers Grimm ” The sea-hare”, it is created a dance solo called Notochord. It is an interpretation with text and movement, of a tale that can be revisited, 200 years later, with a new look, but evoking other times. Notochord is a small piece to be presented on an environment close to the public, where the choreographic drawing is traced along the line of a notochord in relation to the spectator. How can we tell a story with the Body? Notochord is the origin and sharing of very different beings. This base is the matrix that generates the spine, in a metaphor of creating structure.
