Choreography: Andrea Peña

To what extent are technology and artificiality part of our world, our reality? In 6.58: MANIFESTO, the dancers interact with a computer, a soprano and a DJ as they explore the concepts of artifice and artificiality that dictate how we live our lives. In our realities, artificiality is embedded in our bodies and minds; artifice taints our interactions, our collective and individual experiences. In this choreographic triptych, the raw, rigorous and visceral creative energy of Andrea Peña & Artists culminate in a vibrant and magnetic work.
