Project Description

BURACO was born out of a desire to share other possible relationship logics with children, opening space for a sensory and sensitive adventure. On stage, three performers take off for an adventure: they go in and out, up and down, they cross and they pierce large, small, green, dark, noisy and silent landscapes. In BURACO everything is pierced and everything pierces. Everything is supposed to cross over, go in or go out, fall inside, remain, disappear. To look and to see the other side: black, skin, green, printed, hairy. BURACO is an adventure of matter. Without transitions. A whole world fits in.
