“False falling” is a performance that stretches time. Through daring and listening, it looks at the similarities and gaps between mental and physical endurance, embraces failure and wonders between its possible/multiple definitions.
Surrounded by a landscape of fragile plaster and stiff metal structures, 5 delicate bodies perform cycles of gestures on the border between functionality and uselessness. By placing/fitting themselves inside these constructions that at times allude to an absurd gym, or perhaps an oversized playground, the performers constantly search for the ephemeral moment that precedes exhaustion and success, and test the (im)possibility of reaching the ultimate goal. A game of building and failing expectations, a play between tangible and invisible realities.
