Synopsis:

This is the story of a journey.
A voyage which is passage and challenge
Conquest
Augury and slum

Madness, escape, a reencounter, a stabbing, an alteration.

Sol Picó, one of the leading names in modern contemporary dance, is on this occasion, working alongside her regular faithful tribe tempting us with a new proposal: an invitation to explore far beyond our usual places and comfort zones. A voyage in which we discover individuals who, tired of their life on earth, decide to embark on an expedition into space. When they reach their destination they will meet unexpected characters, who, once upon a time, got the same idea…

The show gathers 7 characters and lasts about 70 minutes. The flexibility of the scenography enables its representation in middle and large scale theatres. There is also the possibility to have the 3 musicians perform live (percussions, voice, saxophone and effects)

Sol Picó belongs to that generation of stage artists who invent worlds, creators of a unique style and personal language beyond the established and preconceived, more aware of the vital impulses. Poeticising even the most low-down and vile.

Once more she uses collage as a tool to behold fragments, impressions, images, movement and sounds held together to weave a surrealistic world paradoxically similar to our daily reality. Black humour skilfully balances the existential questions raised in this work.

This is the story of a visionary and oniric journey with an unexpected outcome.
