The meeting among two strangers in a space full of seemingly unconnected words and thoughts, soon becomes a reflection about the ambivalence and common places of human nature. As it turns personal and more intimate, the innocent looking into the other threatens with unconsciously transforming into a mirror towards oneself. Without turning explicitly political, the piece questions how we conceive and relate to the otherness from a personal and human dimension.
Encontrarse is a physical theatre duet built around the stories of its two characters on stage and the way they get to know one another. The conflict or development relies on two core elements of human essence: storytelling and the curiosity and need to give meaning to what we look at. How is built what we know about ourselves and how the relationship we have with another person transforms as we get to know them?
