In his solo that lies at the intersection of dance, theatre and performance, dancer Helliot Baeza, who was born in Spain and is a member of the Compañía Danza Mobile since 2006, goes on a scenic journey that brings the uniqueness of each person into focus. Starting from his own biography, Beaza opens up debates, builds bridges and asks what it is that unites people, creates differences between them and what separates them. It is the supposedly «other» that creates friction with prevalent concepts of so-called normality and leads to the question of what it currently takes to be considered a «good» dancer and what that could be. Disarmingly self-sufficient and with catchy modes of storytelling, Bazea skilfully uses a wide range of forms of expression, supported by rhythmically pulsating drum music. «Helliot» creates a universe on stage, in which humanity as a whole, as a mosaic of single stories, becomes a reference and a reality in which no judgement takes place.
Duration: 55 Min
