“Coexistimos” is a collage of metaphors about the challenge of being one and wanting to be many.
To be the tiger and the tamer, a sad clown and a fit of laughter, live several bodies, wanting to be the reality of your dreams. Like a wave at sea, going through temporary states and be fully present in each of them. Wandering is an end in itself. Full of forget-me-nots and sweating, singing and dancing, a frenzy so good it feels like magic. And, of course, it is.
Coexistimos expresses the firm belief that arts are promiscuous and enjoy the company of one another. It has dance, theater, cinema, manipulation of objects, architecture in movement, and varied arti fices that try to create a succession of illusions.
