A piece that reflects on today’s world, where fake news is part of a game of truths and lies surrounding manipulation. The four interpreters immerse themselves in a dialogue with the world we live in to discover the essential points of different issues, manipulated and not manipulated.

Panaíbra Gabriel Canda was born in Maputo, Mozambique. He is one of the most influential choreographers in Africa; he reflects on the post-colonial unrest in his country with exceptional ambiguity. He studied theatre, dance and music in Mozambique and Portugal and since 1993 has created his own artistic projects. His work has been presented around the world and has won several awards. In 1998 he founded CulturArte – Cultura e Arte em Movimento, the first and only contemporary dance production space in his country. As an artistic director and choreographer, Panaíbra focuses on promoting and developing the regional and local dance scene through creations, performances and training programmes.
