Duration: Inauguration Dansa València + Show.

Taking as its starting point the Pharsalia by Marco Anneo Lucano (39-65 AD) from Córdoba, this work investigates the concept of war from an allegorical approach, putting the body at the service of concepts such as conflict, crisis, resistance or evasion. Eleven performers go through choreographies charged with violence, subtlety and theatricality, launching themselves, with all their physicality, into a party of combat. An anti-war song to dance as a weapon of liberation and saving energy.
