GOLDEN DREAM is an investigation on the concept of limitation. This performance brings to the conscious level the physical and mental limitations that cross us, due to external or internal restrictions, including the social and moral structures and rules that we have incorporated. As the Korean philosopher Byung-Chul Han states, the limit in Western society, is often the normative and psychological outcome of the inability to welcome the Other. In the performance, we explore a state of presence that we can experience in the passage between wakefulness and sleep. We explore it together with the audience in a verbal and no-verbal somatic communication.
