In the form of a filmic performance blending light and sound in a poetic way, this piece follows the metamorphosis of an erased and damaged woman, who progressively heals and mutates. A raw and subtle sensory experience -immersive and intimate at once-, the performance invites the audience into an existential process of transformation.
Fractured by a society that confuses her, dismantles her, forces her to respond, act up, and live, while being completely subjugated by him, his schemes and laws. Crisialida embraces the very essence of a crisis and its critical break, going back to the center. That of the cocoon, the uterus and the cave. Here is where the inner retreat occurs: is it a return, a beginning or an end? It is the morphosis that determines the birth of a body, of its extensions and wings. Still deformed and encapsulated, it is a body presented while striving for an emancipation soon to take place.
