Crush is an experiment in translating emotion into movement. The piece allows us to visit powerful, albeit ephemeral, reactions: passion, frustration, desire, fantasy, attachment, affection, shame, anger, and it conjugates them in a disorderly way, as they usually coexist. It addresses urgency, imminence, and guilt as deeply human manifestations of our ongoing need to meet others.
This piece displays almost compulsively the search to get closer, to connect. A piece that shows many pieces, and talks about the power of desire, its tensions, its overflows. Dialogue-tension-contamination between sound and movement universe, which gives way to images, spaces, and poetic multisensory activation.
