Attracted by the influences of the capital of the East, Tokyo, we dare to get under the skin of some of the aesthetic aspects that sensitise us and prompt us to make them the focus of our creative traits. Hence, a meeting of eras, cultures and locations, linking and bringing closer different worlds and genres to give life to a moment of visual poetics, from our perspective of the times and as women.

Japanese culture reached us filtered through film, music, myths, etc., and without digging too deeply, we allow it to affect us and manifest itself through our language, movement, music and image. This generates meeting points: time – women – transgression – and within these, tradition, the inevitable, the essence, submission and manipulation, beauty and magic, struggle, passion, urbanism, future.

Three women embodying these worlds, coexisting with a visual development that uses objects and video projections to open the doors to fantasy and the sensations of these three worlds.

A path; nature; beliefs; excess; meat; war; technology. A living installation of bodies, images and sounds, composing moments on stage that touch us with their magic, emotion and present life.
