WeWood is a conversation between three characters who hide and reveal themselves through their relationships with objects. A polyphony of surreal situations in which abstract movements become a refuge, an escape from the tangible present, an opening to an imagination awoken by listening to the things that surround us.

Federica Porello, Marine Broise and Xavi Moreno investigate the bridges between dance and the manipulation of objects. They are chiefly interested in the relationship between movements and things, and specifically in how to make movements concrete and things abstract.

This residency will be the last stage of the creation process for the piece We Wood, an L’animal a l’esquena associate project, before its premiere in August at the MIMA Festival in Mirepoix

“We are not playing with things or images, we are playing with objects that both yield to and resist our desires. We are in a state of union with and separation from them. Playing with a thing is being together with it just where we are separated”.
Francis Ponge
