EXUVIA is a theatrical performance about the search for our inner possibilities and limitations. A beginning of the creation, bodies in space, a never ending space in which we are not the end of evolution. A search in today’s society which is becoming increasingly materialistic. A world in which we are barely conscious that we belong to a larger entity.
In her puppet performance without words, Charlotte will take you on a never ending journey in which we become conscious of the relativity of our surroundings. She will sweep the floor from under your feet, but will catch you once again, and just for a moment she will make you part of a bigger universe.
