FLAT aerial theater
Français  Nederlanse  Español

"In an unknown city, in an apartment like any other, an anonymous man loses his ground. Literally upside down, the control over his senses abandons him, as well as its attachment to reality.
This character, halfway between a metamorphosed Kafka and a restless J.L.Borges, is also a room traveler, wandering through the labyrinths if his own conscience, errant inside his mental landscapes
"

FLAT combines storytelling, video projections, and aerial performance. It could be presented on the back wall of a theatre stage, or outdoors, four stories up, on the side of an apartment building. The inner voice text can be translated and recorded in the local language.


REVIEWS

 "
This is one dance that could be seen again and again, as its mystery was more potent than its meaning "
Wendy Liberatore

"(...) a breathtaking, elusive narrative that combines movement, video projections and text. In Flat, Argentinian choreographer and theatre maker Rodrigo Pardo plays with abstract notions of time, space and perspective, all of them qualities that can no longer be taken for granted here – in a literal sense due to the tilted performance area hung at a dizzying height, and in a figurative sense. "
