SYNOPSIS

In the beginning it was chaos and silence. Then the ancestral sound and the voice and the bodies emerged, melting and transmuting into forms, melodies and colors "The Word became flesh" giving meaning and order to all that cosmic generating process with which the greatest epic of the Universe that this show recreates: the process of hominization first and humanization later that goes from the old Neanderthal to the new Sapiens. A journey that allows us to interpret human evolution as the conquest of freedom, from submission to chaos and disorder, to reaching the liberation of the possible and impossible through body language, music and the deployment of self-awareness. as the pinnacle of the whole process.


All this and much more is what is represented in this dance, theater, circus, video art, vocal and organ music show, covered by a fantastic multimedia, embedded in the stones of our patrimonial treasure.
