Gorpuztu  is a contemporary dance show with live music show that talks about the search of balance. It is a struggle to be calm, to silence the noise, to lighten the load and guilt, to find a place where the animal sleeps peacefully.
It is born from the research of the use of the body in certain moments in certain religions. Dividing the body in several pieces, observing movement actions at the prayer time and going through concepts such as guilt, penance, transcendence, love, submission...
