( Moon Ribas, Quim Girón )

This project is the first artistic collaboration between Quim Girón (contemporary circus artist) and Moon Ribas (cyborg choreographer), in which they research how to bring natural phenomena to the stage. Fenómeno (Phenomenon) is a duet in conversation with temperature and ice, the main element they use to model different universes. There is constant transformation during the piece, of space, bodies and matter.
From a fridge on wheels comes ice that will pass through all its states: solid, liquid and gas. Fenómeno invites the audience to a space that is intimate, fresh and poetic.
Phenomena open the door to mystery, the unknown of how science works, the uncontrollable force of nature, but they can also go beyond magnitude. Each of us is a small phenomenon and we can even feel phenomenal. The piece Fenómeno invites the audience to a cosy space, but not necessarily between the four walls of a theatre. It could be a factory or in the open countryside, always seeking intimacy, darkness, silence and level ground.
