“If I had known you’d be away for so long, I wouldn’t have let you go”

A chorus of Pregnant Women moves forward slowly. Facing the public, she says: “No one should ever survive their children”. Maria is in labor. At 06:04 on April the 14th, 1992. A shag with a cannula. Aliens or the prettiest belly on earth. What do giraffes talk about? July 1997. It’s 3 AM. Did you find your sister?

Winter in the Body is a drama that explores the limits of absence, the vast emptiness inside of us when we lose someone. How do we carry on when the vacuum created by the loss is overpowering. Using just six actresses, three refrigerators, and seemingly endless bolts of fabric, this visual and emotional production emphasizes the poetry of the text through the body language, energy, music, and color.

To create the vacuum of absence we combine several artistic languages, risk with different contrasts and then serve them to the audience’s imagination.
