Flora (Work in progress)

ARCA / Duo Kaos

Sow a thought and you will reap an action,
sow an action and you will reap a habit,
sow a habit and you will reap a character,
sow a character and you will reap a destiny.

Charles Reade


In a scenic landscape with earthy colors, two figures walk towards each other, while the space rotates and immerses the viewer in a dreamlike dimension shaped by the slow metamorphoses and silent balances of the natural world.
Dawn gives way to day, sunset to night in a present that reveals traces of the past: real and imaginary merge, bringing out vague reminiscences of distant histories, wonderful visions of a "planet to come".

In accordance with the stylistic code of the company, the new artistic project by Giulia Arcangeli and Luis Paredes Sapper entitled FLORA it develops through the juxtaposition of scenes with a strong visual and emotional impact: the sound atmospheres and the color tones will give life to an immersive space where the viewer is invited to abandon his gaze. The scenography consists of a revolving wooden stage with a circular diameter and the construction of the scenes, of the compositions and choreographic actions foresees the placement of the public at 360°. In this speechless show, the artists contaminate the techniques of the circus with those of contemporary dance and intertwine the most diverse influences to create a magical place where nature is the principle from which the relational dynamics between bodies and space originates, objects and the forces that animate them. The props, the mobile stage and the colors evoke the earth, its cyclical rhythms, his slow movements, imperceptible and its silences; gestures and movements become a metaphor for strength and grace, of fragility and mystery, of the sensitivity and intelligence of the plant world.
