We pretend to dance… it is a manifesto to talk about everything that makes us lose the original essence of why we started to dance! It reminds me why I once said: “Mama, I want to be a dancer”. It is a glimpse of dance as a profession. It shows the less visible side of professional dance.
The pleasure of dancing in the face of pain, effort and sacrifice. Five performers in the constant contradiction between freedom and constraint. The ball as a subversion, the revolt of the enshrined things, corseted, cramped, tormented, surrendered, exhausted of daily life, of responsibility, of adult life, of normality.
We pretend to dance is a dance party; a visual and sound experience that travels between pleasure, virtuosity, ridicule and criticism.
