Sa Manifattura, Cagliari



Three performers reshape a relaxed club dance into a mesmerising undulating movement, until everything is transformed into an electrifying energy.
At the peak of exertion and perspiration, their incessant flow of movement reinvents itself through bright, shifting impressions.
With apparent simplicity, If You Could See Me Now exhorts us to look again and more closely.
Arno Schuitemaker created the performance against the backdrop of a changing reality. How do we keep moving forward? How to shift and realign our attention?
From ecstasy to agitation, from meticulous construction to its fracture, If You Could See Me Now goes straight to the heart of the body and its relationship to reality.
