Filia et fobia
A piece focused on making us reflect on fragility and beauty through a voyeur’s gaze; a reflection on carnal desire, winner of the first prize at the Choreography Competition of Madrid.
La Taimada’s latest production once again places us in an act of voyeurism, an indisputably human act, in which the bodies of the two dancers, Clio Van Kerm dressed in PPE, and Mariona Moranta completely naked, intertwine and allow us to share in the desire of detachment about flesh. This piece won first prize at the Choreography Competition of Madrid
