Ritual has been a connector to the world, the environment, the community, that are always moving and changing. It shows the way to relate and locate oneself in the world inside and outside of us. It can help a rebirth of a person/community, promoting changes, releasing tension, affirming wisdom. In many traditions, dance has been linked to rituals.

The piece explores this ritual aspect of dance and tries to create our contemporary ritual taking the performers and the audience into a ride of connection, metamorphosis, and celebration.
