A proposal by KOMM’N’ACT, in co-production with Système Friche Theatre - la Friche la Belle de Mai, supported by Theatre Durance, in Château-Arnoux-Saint-Auban and Theatre de la Balsamine, in Brussels.
Submerso resulted from the meeting of three artists with different disciplines.
The creation involved a series of residencies in Europe initiated and proposed by KOMM’N’ACT.
Submerso is most probably an area in your head or near the sea, whose boundaries keep changing. Its outline is blurred, what is inside it is dark. Submerso is our flaw. It's a tension that ceaselessly grows with no apparent reason. It derives from a movement, a look, a presence, between the lines of what is being said, performed, danced.
