Homo Furens

Filipe Lourenço - Plan KHomo Furens

Play video

Five men on stage perform military excercises incessantly. A Full Metal Jacket fueled piece, Homo Furens interrogates the way we look at movement wether it aims at choregraphic or combat purposes. As exhaustion and repetition grow, their moves will lead you towards a sense of peace.
