SHOCK (2009)

is a dance work conceived by david Zambrano, with a collaboration of an international cast of 12 dancers.

Though specific movements and the relations in between the dancers questions are raised: can we make our dance immortal, or eternal, as we pass through life and beyond?
Can we dance until we are ready to die and even beyond death?
Themes of extreme transformation between states and energies carry through the line of: life and death, thermal and kinetic energy, potential energy transformed in free fall, electric shocks, and the impredictible with cartoon characters illustrate these states.

SHOCK by David ZambranoThe definition of chemical reactions, our memory of electric shocks , and images of the immortality of cartoon characters inspire shock.
