Otsoa… it’s a scream. Like a howl, to an invented freedom. It is a goal, a place where you must go, you have to arrive. Only the most prepared can do it. It is a dreamlike place, clothed and enveloped by everything that today’s society (is supposed to) lacks. Otsoa is a critique of different social movements with a pyramidal structure that are currently active.
This choreographic piece uses the figure of an actress as the leader of one of these groups, influencing them as if it were a politics, such as a television presenter or the leader of the group of the Big Brother program to direct (using irony) the actions that will determine the change of attitude and transformation of the group of dancers, that with body language, will show all those internal conflicts.
