N O R A I
with Scapino Ballet Rotterdam
Norai, in catalan means bollard
Norai in Lithuanian means desires
Two Norai in two directions:
A mooring post to leave behind and an unknown desire to move forward.
In Norai it is revealed the relationship between two people that are attached to their pasts experiences.
Do we need to leave the past behind in order to go forward? What happens if we just let it go?
With a very daring set stage and the limitations that this gives to the interpreters within a high definition choreography where precision is the root of all body language, the two meanings of the tittle become the guideline for this trip.
