- Thank you Erin O'Reilly for the translation of the text -
An idea can appear in any person’s mind. Without will, this idea will only remain as an embryo, and will definitively remain as an unachieved dream.
In this piece, the existence and importance of one’s own will is shown. In order to grow, develop and evolve, an idea needs a huge source of energy. This source of energy exists in each of us but unfortunately it often remains unused. This piece deals with the idea that "energy production"; regardless of where the motivation comes from, willpower is the generator.
This will can push, refresh, encourage, support, lead and empower an individual. Will is a kind of independent person who lives inside each of us, transforming our internal energy and exploding it into the external world.
The piece manifests this will through a performer. Our goal is to convince the public that a person is never alone. He can find the strength to accomplish daunting feats using his own resources. We want the audience to become aware that it is possible for each of us to discuss and debate with ourselves. We can be our own support in life.
Murky Depths is a 30-minutes-long creation for two dancers that aims to surprise the audience by bringing what is buried within each of us - the stories, feelings, internal work - to the surface projects. We want the audience to leave the theater full of energy, saying "I will realize and develop my ideas. No matter how long it takes, I will engage heart and soul. I will fulfill my desires. "
