ROADS is an immersive dance piece that explores how much of a person's journey in life is made out of fate, of choice and of chance. The work is an intimate piece, with only up to 33 audience members in each performance, who share the space with 3 dancers. |
The work draws on personal and intimate experiences of the performers, as well as Taragano Theatre's ensemble interpretation to ideas from theology, especially the Parcae: the Three Fates from Greek Mythology who are in charge of weaving person's and gods' thread of life.
