Spanish Premiere

In "Supernatural", there are exploding lights, smoking dance or a multitude of vertigos. You are by turns put in the light, enchanted and strangely taken over. You are a spectator. You are in front of a conventional performance space: a naked, black box. Little by little, the stage gets filled, passed through by luminous and resounding air. It agitates you; it touches you; you slip into it. A dancer appears, she shows you her dance, she drags you along in her world, delights you, you see her thinking, almost talking, letting go, until she disappears in the smoke. Then, a voice arises from the deepest of your thoughts; it guides you, tortures you, sees through you despite you, it plays with you. The voice also pulls you along, saying: 'come with me'. In Alix Eyunadi's "Supernatural", no effect is ever merely an effect.
