A new production of the Spanish company, beloved by the Russian public
In the new production, La Veronal and choreographer Marcos Morau offer the audience a hypnotic sci-fi exercise in the best traditions of Asimov or Tarkovsky. Morau is true to his amazing, clear visual style as well as his signature broken dance language. Spectators will take an extraordinary journey to the planet of Pasionaria.
Pasionaria is the result of the efforts of all mankind to achieve progress. The planet is inhabited with creatures similar to humans. What we call life has become an artificial landscape and its inhabitants have turned into technological gadgets that have lost any kind of passion. The piece will give us a chance to take a look at ourselves, find differences and discover whether we are feeling something, whether we are still alive.
