Description

The butterfly effect is a provocative concept that demonstrates how a seemingly minor event in one part of the world could potentially lead to a significant impact in another. Resigned to this complex interconnectedness, we suggest one should live their life observantly and value any mistake as a life experience. Sometimes our choices may result in negative consequences, but life will still flow.

The project illuminates senses and movements, so the audience hears their movements along with music, and sees a projection of their movements on the ground in moving particles. All this takes place in a dark circle that makes the audience feel they are the core of the project.
