The solo dance piece is about my father who died recently. After he was diagnosed with cancer, he was going through the memories of his whole life, trying to settle the end, while trying to enjoy life fully as long as possible. Iwakagami is a pink flower which blossoms in certain mountains. In his last days, due to his strong request, we climbed a very steep mountain to see this flower.
I remember his happiness to see the flower, and the resemblance between him and the flower, crawling and blossoming beautifully.
The piece is a homage to a soul who cherished his life and precious memories.

After the performance a short animation movie by Gitanjali Rao "Printed Rainbow" (India) will be shown. As Y.Kominami said: the dance piece and the film makes a whole. It compliments each other.

After - there will be presentation of the Portuguese dance artists & post-performance discussion.

Tickets: 10 and 7€
