An interactive piece inspired by the work of Cildo Merieles, in which the choreographer Bebeto Cidra transfers the Brazilian artist’s capacity to create works of great sensorial power into the world of dance. A show based on the concept of the boundaries or limits of what we see and what we perceive, in the sense of physical or mental impositions that coerce the freedom of the individual.

In the labyrinth of MACBA as a stage, access is both allowed and denied. The gaze can enter but the body cannot cross boundaries with ease. The physical presence of music transmitted and manipulated live by Martín Hug based on the sound sensors embedded in hidden corners and objects of the Museum, highlights and emphasises the material qualities of space.
