The Unborn

Flavia Pinheiro

The Unborn transports the audience into a mysterious realm of enchantment, an in-between world. An absent presence is evoked, with troubling spirits defying gravity with somersaults, suspended in darkness.

Moving between ritual and choreography, The Unborn is based on the ones who will never be born and those who died after birth. The dance embodies a sense of magical movement that can hear spirits and communicate with them, and can be seen through closed eyes, as if unlocking a clairvoyant perspective.

In this solo dance performance, Brazilian choreographer and performer Flavia Pinheiro invites you to reflect on the fragility and resilience of life, the mysteries of the spirit world and the eternal longing for continuity. In her artistic practice, Pinheiro creates fanciful exchanges with non-human beings, like bacteria, plants, birds, antelopes and spirits.
