In Unraveled Heroes, choreographer Maya M. Carroll and Fattoria Vittadini create seven avatars who invent 'another earth'.
Landmarks, chronologies and interactions are made up as the playground of imagination becomes existential.
Invisible / visible walls shape domestic rooms where the characters encounter for brief, urgent moments, fulfilling connections that barely last.
Residue and resonance become a climate under which all performers exist with endurance, desire, struggle and vulnerability.
Fiction and reality are fused in a collective subconscious as the performers shift between extreme states.
Familiar habitats become an illusion of protection, from which the players are compelled to travel away.
Walking the fine line between lucidity / obscurity,
the seven voices in the group change faces and purpose while their voyage transforms from physical descending to metaphysical transcending.
