Scotoma / We all live in a box

Clémentine Telesford & Lisard Tranis / Ambae Company

23 minutes / 35 minutes


All ages


You're looking, but what do you really see? Can you perceive what you overlook and notice what is hidden at first sight? Scotoma is a dance piece premièred at the Festival Danseu in 2021 that talks about this, about attention, and that makes us reflect on what we see and what we perceive. The piece invites us to observe the coming together of two people immersed in their own world and who give each other the opportunity to discover other perspectives.
Clémentine Telesford & Lisard Tranis are two dance artists based in Barcelona, who have worked in different companies such as Guy Nader and Maria Campos and Lali Ayguadé, among others. Over the years, they have developed a common language that has led them to embark on their own path as collaborative choreographers. Since 2019 they have been carrying out artistic research and jointly creating stage pieces focused on movement and corporal expression as a means of communication, in which they explore attention as a dramaturgical instrument.

We all live in a box:
Three individuals intertwine in the journey of their lives through dance, live music and the boxes with which they interact. What do our boxes consist of? The work contemplates how we define the lives we live by creating invisible walls that contain our ideals and beliefs. How do we find ourselves and others in the midst of all these layers?
Founded in 2019 by the Belgian dancer and choreographer Arina Lannoo and the Catalan musician and composer Tito Ripoll, Ambae Company addresses human and social issues from an artistic perspective. Their first work, Connection, premièred at Dansa Metropolitana in 2021. The second, We all live in a box, premièred in May 2022 at the Imaginarius Festival in Portugal, and has been on tour in Spain, Portugal, Belgium and the Netherlands. A new production, La veu de les (d)ones [The voice of women and the waves], is in the creation phase.
