„In Your Body" portrays the dual nature of man: On the one hand, the creative, innovative and visionary force and on the other, the uncompromising pursuit of economic advantage through power and control.
The performance combines dance, cello, electronic music and multimedia to convey a message about standardised global food production and its impact on people and the environment.
Together with the musicians and the play of light and projections, the dancer Juan Tirado shows the complex life of a man, ranging from intelligence, ambition and seductive charisma to cunning, dominance and despair. Juan Tirado achieves expressive nuances with his dance that correspond to the multi-layered character of his role.
