The performance “Oriente Plus/Power Cut” speaks a mythological language combining dance, music, drama and sign theatre. Humorous, entertaining elements build a bridge to the difficult topic of the diaspora. Specially created for outdoor use, Oriente symbolizes a place where people lose themselves, an abandoned homeland that confronts us with fundamental questions of identity.
”It is a story of the things that keep us together, even when the world tears us apart. A story about music, poetry and culture. A story that moves in it’s own way, sinuous, snake-like, circling like a vulture, gliding and drifting through the air. A story about family losing themselves and finding themselves in the memories of all the mothers and children that came before themand made them who they are. “This is a Caribbean Story of power cuts and generators, of crossroads and ocean crossings, of haunted bodies and dancing souls.“ Pedro De Senna
