The Edge

PRISMA 2017-International Contemporary Dance Festival of Panama


A haunting piece created on the edges of life. One peers through the darkness, hiding behind the fear to be seen. There is too much not to be exposed. Still the curiosity pierces through, what goes on with the world out there? Could others take my place? Would I let them?


Different voices of survival. At times aloof, distant. At times deafening, frantic. A perfectly normal person, how desirable. To be or not to be in the limelight, with the world demanding something of you, every passing moment. Finally, the desire, to live on, lives on…

Don’t let me drown.
