Emotional mimicry is the process by which we understand the other's emotion by mimicking their expression or movement.
The road to the other passes, even before language, through their face and the joy, fear, disgust, curiosity, anger sadness it expresses.
The performance/exhibition of feelings outwards helps us navigate, understand and express our needs to one another. But could they also be controlled and virtuosically manipulated to one's advantage?
In this short piece, three dancers embark on a shared journey with the audience, travelling throughout the stage in the search of intimacy, love and most of all recognition, at any cost.
