Building bonds, step by step, we discover the world. The world of our relationship. Proximity and all that arises from it. Birth. It is a performance that touches children’s senses, while referring to the story of life. “close” is a performance that will become an adventure of discovering the secrets that lie dormant inside each of us. Full of movement and constant surprises. It is a return to the space from which we all come, a search for experiences common to us and our children. “Close” is a play about parenthood and all the meanings it brings with it.
