The Emperor has sent a message from his deathbed, to you alone.

This work explores distance and loneliness in human relationships through small gestures from daily life. It speaks about vanity of longings. Our bodies and sound interact on the border between intimacy and violence. We shared every step of the creation from the choice of the text to the realization of the choreography and created this theatre piece under the supervision of Jorge Isaac. We are grateful for his help and support.
