A piece that embodies the idea that in life everything flows. Things happen one after the other and the human being plays, gets distracted and grows in that fluidity. Events flow and influence each other. As a result, a million facts conjugate themselves in infinite different forms. The ilusion of control may blind us from our own growth, for our only control lies on how we receive and deal with what happens to us. Illusion is attractive, seductive, persistent and perseverant. Our action is movement and movement is dance.

THE FLUDITY OF THINGS dances the action of 5 bodies in space, time, interelationships without forgetting the infinite possibilities for the same event. At the same time, other bodies defy the audience with the idea of stillness. What scares us the most? Fluidity or Stillness? Do we want to keep moving or do we want to stop?
