The Weight of a Seed
A solo dance, under the theme of a new measure of effort, with a prologue interpreted by a group of non-professional teenagers, composed by a sonographic stage space.
Near the earth, the body moves gently.
The weight of a seed contains within itself the potential, the origin and the reproduction of life. It is the beginning of the whole movement.
With the right effort, this weight falls on the land and transforms into life and form, over time.
