Private Project

Liturgia

Five girls face an inner journey that will lead them to a catharsis.
Each one of them has her own story, which we do not know yet.
Sometimes to overcome pain we need to walk right through it and be overwhelmed, realize that we are not alone, and find the strength to move on.
We invoke the Mother, a spirit guide who can show us the way, a woman who can console us: a Mother Earth who can welcome and protect us.
Divided into three acts, each one with a different choreographic and cinematographic style, the film introduces our performers who — through their eyes and movements — will lead the way for us, through a ritual of purification and rebirth.
