An intimate solo with live original music, a piece that balances between the fragility of human life and a sense of fear. The world becomes a cage, security turns into a compulsive craze, and we are controlled. Oppressed by fuelled fear, out of fear, we go back to our instincts, searching for the meaning of all, something that makes sense. We are treated like animals and we bow to power as if we were unconscious beings.

"Attractively lithe and patently skilful"

Donald Hutera

"Slick movement sequences in monochrome showed her to be an impressive dancer. The strongest moments came in the brief visual exchanges between Ribeiro and live musician Daniel Rico, showing real tenderness and a pair perfectly in sync."
