“MORE” is a composition made by modern and contemporary dance, modern mime, physical theatre, and spoken chorus. What can we do more? This is the starting question to open a window on our contemporary world. A group of Artists representing humanity arrives from water and from the land.
We are all connected, living conflicts, separations, injustice.
Empowerment, equality, Inclusion: what can we do more?
The inspiration for this original concept comes from the vision that humanity can make a real change being joined hands in hands, walking towards a new path through partnership and dialogue, in the perspective that we have to leave to our children a better world.
