All things are cyclical, everything has an end; all things ultimately depart and expire before re-emerging or being reborn under a different form at a given time or place. Collapse, dissolution, renewal, transformation. A group of individuals tumbles into renewal, drawn hypnotically by an invisible force. An allegory of life in constant movement and transformation becomes progressively manifest….
In his new creation, Guilherme Botelho invites us to cast a metaphysical look at the act of falling. What does it mean to fall? Is it to die or to let go? Is it to fall in love, to traverse that familiar whirlwind of excitement and feelings? Alias’ new production, Normal., presents bodies leaning in the direction of the wind, like leaves of grass in a storm or individuals caught up in the cyclical motion of life.
