Duets about humanity, and its absence
To celebrate Duda Paiva Company’s 15th anniversary we dive into the future!
Welcome to JOE 5, where the uncanny liveliness of Duda Paiva Company’s foam puppets meets finest dance talents to create visual poetry at its best.
In this new solo, the setting of a post-apocalyptic world is explored and humanity is put to question. Instead of being born, man is designed by extraterrestrial system which creates a perfect neo-human: eternally young, infinitely modified. But are perfection and immortality worthwile, knowing we have to give up on everything that makes us human, over and over again?
The dystopian world of JOE 5 is built in creative dialogue with STMSND Theatre Collective, by flirting with ideas of cyberpunk and futuristic visions of Michel Houellebecq’s ‘The Possibility of an Island’.
