This show is based on the life and works of the medieval painter, Andrei Rublev, who painted Russian Orthodox icons and frescos. The characters in his works are always serene and calm, which in turn draws the viewer in, asking them to consider the characters beyond their two-dimensional, static façades. This dance performance at Hiroshima Theatre takes Rublev’s portraits 'not as portraits of reality, but as a reality between realities'. What the viewer must imagine in both Rublev’s works and this dance performance is the hidden movement and motives of the characters. The show is directed by Barcelona-born film director, Tomas Aragay, and choreographed by Sofia Asencio. As a performance focused on movement and interaction of bodies, it is an ideal show for non-Spanish or Catalan-speaking audiences.
