In “Let Me Die in My Footsteps” four dancers embody crisis as departing point in an ambiguous journey of conflict and resolution.

The soundscape created by Gasper Piano, in contrast to the dancer’s strenuous physicality, offers a subtle sense of nostalgia. In his new work Renan Martins de Oliveira attempts to create a pure dance piece where the vocabulary is generated from the necessity of being together, even in times of clear adversity.
