overDOSE


The piece Overdose presents rich emotional flavors, quiet irony and sensitive moods intertwined with dynamic movements– components that may already sound familiar to viewers, since they have long characterized the works of the company. This piece explores a topic with strong social and psychological implications: it analyses a sensitive area of human behavior together with its mechanisms, which builds up the visually geometrical performance discovering the quality, origin and roots of habits, obsessions and addictions.

The development of an addiction is usually accompanied by a change in the inner value system. Formerly important principles and activities lose their significance, do not cause joy any more and fail to engage interest. On the other hand, the object of the addiction assumes a higher value, becomes more important than anything else and excludes other sources of joy from the user’s life. – excerpts
