Xtra Large

Play for children and teenagers visually based on the work of the Colombian artist Fernando Botero.

This form permits to talk about: difference, obesity, self-knowledge, feeling of our body, our skin and our soul… and express it through the dance, with humour, in grotesque way, and dramatic sometimes. The connecting thread of this play is the apple, symbol of sin, temptation, love and eroticism, but also symbol of play and joy of life… It is the main concern of young people. Isn’t it?
