Claroscuro is a dance performance curiously investigating shapes, fantasy and the contrast between light and darkness.

Can we see light and colors even when we close our eyes? Do objects and colors appear differently in another light? Join our exploration celebrating curiosity, the secrets of ordinary objects and the power of change – where something comes to an end something else begins.

The title is put together by the two Spanish words claro (light) and oscuro (darkness). It refers to the contrasts of colors used by painters to enhance or give focus to specific parts of a painting.

Can also be booked as a filmed performance with a personal (filmed) greeting from one of the dancers. If you want to work more around the themes of the show, you can take part of our teacher’s guide and book a digital workshop in connection with the screening of the show.
