Insect Train

Hell is on earth and nowhere else….

This creation is a collaborative experimentation, reflecting on the interface of nature and the artifice of the human body. Celebrated choreographers Bengolea and Holzinger, join forces to confront the limits of the body and its representation in relationship to nature. Hybrid insects exist in a lake of slime, in an environment where unpredictable conditions force constant adaptation. The infected landscape gradually disfigures their physical and sensory world.
