Nebula deals with the relationship between the human body and nature seen as the interaction between two force fields, in a post-apocalyptic scenario. In a sort of archaeology of the future, Nebula reflects on other relationships that can create a new cosmogony. Time, technique and matter manipulation, earth and chimeras. Which mutations and hybridisations can be produced by chaos?
In collaboration with visual artist e scenographer Célia Gondol, Brazilian choreographer and performer Vania Vaneau investigates the metamorphosis of materials and gestures, archaic and telluric at the same time, that are able to become speaking subjects that deeply influence our perception.
Nebula manipulates different materials to explore the unknown and to create a fusion between future and past, in which time flows in a spiral. Revealing the original state of natural elements, creating healing rituals, fertilising the space and exploring notions of catharsis and ecstasy. In a prehistoric science-fiction tale.
