HARIAK

Synopsis

“HARIAK” (‘THREADS’) is a multi-disciplinary piece of dance-theatre based on the experiences of people who felt how the threads which once held their whole lives together had suddenly broken, and they had to start from zero again. Contemporary dance, life-size puppets handling and Harkaitz Cano’s texts come together, giving life to real people’s real stories.

Often, just as a house is built brick by brick, step by step you construct a life which gives you some type of security, without bearing in mind that everything can fall apart at any moment. Unfortunately, it’s only right then, in that moment of confusion, that you realise how fragile life actually is.
