De paso


The excitement of the unknown, the fear of failure, the joy of sharing our life journey. Shown through images built with bodies and the senses, images give way to dance and music as the only language to know and understand each other. “De Paso” is a show that talks about the path we travel on our journey around the world, and as a meeting point where different lives, temperaments, and emotions intersect.
