“My head has already forgotten many things, but my body remembers everything.”

This is the artistic approach of “Exceso de la nada - Excess of Nothing” with which Maura Morales deals with her native Cuba, which she left in 1996.

“At the age of 6, I learned how to dance, how to use a Kalashnikov at the age of 10, and at age 18, that the history of my country was a lie.” (Maura Morales)

A dance solo about swimming in the dry, about swimming against the flow of a photogenic country that looks like it is laughing when it is crying.

A ballad about an exploitative island that you want to visit in this country “before something changes” while the Cubans want to go out, because nothing changes.

Funded by the Ministry of Culture and Science of North Rhine-Westphalia and by the Cultural Office of the City of Düsseldorf.

A production of COOPERATIVA MAURA MORALES in co-production with Forum Freies Theater- FFT / Düsseldorf, Hessian State Ballet / Staatstheater Darmstadt & Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden, Ringlokschuppen / Ruhr.
