About dance, Fireflies and the end of the world as we know it is a dance-and-spoken word performance linking the crisis of Modern times to Dance as a useless phenomenon. Arguing that Modernity encourages progress, production and waste, leaving no space for the “in-between”, Dance appears as a purposeless dynamic image. But is it?
Philosophical ideas about the role of Art in neoliberal western societies put Dance into question, leaving it to its own defense by triggering imagination. This lecture-performance invites you to think and watch along, being a part of a visually and emotionally stimulating landscape of ironic scenarios, where Words and Dance coexist in the utility of the useless.
“Yes to imagination. Yes to spectacle. No answers here. See us dance. Let there be darkness and fireflies to give us a signal in the night”.
