About the piece

Inspired by how the human desire for happiness can also be a necessity, a strategy for protection and even survival, this new performance Bending the Walls is inspired by the incredible courage and resilience that people show under extreme pressure, and which enables them to transcend the reality and escape into a world of imagination. Dance becomes a metaphor for the psychological, physical and emotional forces that we can address to withstand the pressures of life and continue our incessant quest for happiness.
