fauna futura is a space devoured by nature, it is a ritual of transformation, a journey of five into their bodies and into the body of the land. A landscape in constant motion calls them to forget, to surrender, to become. As roots and branches they travel together, expanding and climbing in different directions, to merge through osmosis into a new entity – the animal of the future. The creation revolves around deconstructing mythology and exploring the evolution of mankind into a species, an archive for extinct organisms and lost technologies, as opposed to the role of the destroyer of earth that is prophesied to us. The performance has an interdisciplinary nature, integrating new circus techniques into dance – using bungee straps and partner-acrobatics, as well as hyper(sur)realistic visuals – objects, costumes and scenography contributing to the realization of a unique universe.
