Millo vello

Ay, Cariño!

Friday 3 May 7.45 p.m.
City of Culture | CINC Building, Conference Hall

Millo Vello is a performative piece where bodies and objects dialogue with live music.

It is an exercise in a continuous attempt to return to ancestral, primitive wisdom, while embracing what is part of our current reality and context.

Accept and build with what we have within our reach, without losing sight of what roots and sustains us. Paying homage to time and to the past, whilst embracing the speed of today. Welcoming the present in this coexistence that may appear antagonistic but is ultimately not. Being able to weave with care to build our safe place.

In reality, this piece is a love letter to ourselves and to all those people who may feel appealed to in the search for that peaceful place to dwell.

We make use of the search from the subconscious and dreams, creating visual landscapes that invite quiet observation, to enter into the time of the tree. In this way, the delight of witnessing something that, like nature, is gradually taking shape.
