CLOSKA is an intimate experience that immerses the audience in a reflection on the beauty and responsibility of inhabiting our corner of the universe. Through a fascinating journey, the characters Ka and Clos unveil the story of Closka, a turtle embarked on a risky and uncertain mission to find her way back home.
The performance unfolds an artistic language that intertwines dramaturgy, visual arts, and emerging technologies such as video mapping and live cinema, thus challenging the boundaries between various artistic disciplines.
The inspiration for the tone and pace of the performance comes from the great masters of Haiku, like Masaoka Shiki and Matsuo Bashō. CLOSKA takes poetic contemplation a step further, transforming it into a force that awakens curiosity and stimulates creativity in each viewer, regardless of age.
The performers face the challenge of shaping and transforming space and objects in real-time as part of their emotional journey. This journey is expanded through interaction with technological elements and the incorporation of artistic proposals, thus adding exceptional richness and dynamism to the narrative and visual aspects of the performance.
A question resonates in the air and in the hearts of the audience: will we be able to help Closka find her way back home?
