This new chapter of the Chiron in Aries cycle embarks us in a multilinear, choral choreography, in which each dancer’s individual story line interconnects and depend on one another. Conceived as poetic meditations on the sense of self, the dances carry along the warrior’s will power as much as the traces and scars life imprints in us. Cutting through and razor-sharp versus lush and voluptuous, oscillating between fierce affirmation and determination, surrender and despair, each solo dance becomes a manifesto, landing softly into each other’s bodies like an echo. The piece invents its own mythology and dreams of a world in which the inevitable experience of solitude never translate into isolation and loneliness. Togetherness can heal our deepest wounds.

In astrology, the minor planet Chiron, called after the Centaur also known as “the wounded healer”, represents our deepest wounds and our capacity to heal. The sign Aries represents the ego, willpower, desire and the warrior within us. “
