A BEGINNING_expanded version is the story of a beginning after an ending. An intuition about an uncertain future, an invitation to a realm of imagination. ​Combining musical composition and choreographic design, Bauzà and Jou present a theatrical piece in which live singing and lights manipulated by the performers themselves play a central role in constructing a dramaturgical narrative about the (re)beginning of the world.​

In darkness, 5 performers explore the relationship between their voice, light and movement, transforming our perception to the point where notions of space and time are suspended and the boundaries between bodies dissolve. The spectator is immersed in an immersive and sensory experience where the bodies and voices of the five singers constantly transform and converge into a unified collective body, inviting us to imagine new ways of communicating, being, and relating in society.

A BEGINNING_expanded version transforms the stage into a realm of imagination, reflecting a future where humans have discovered new forms of survival. 

As a result of the artistic collaboration between Bauzà and Jou, the Festival Grec and the Teatre Principal de Palma, the piece will feature the extraordinary participation of membres from the Teatre Principal de Palma Youth Choir, who will be added to the original cast of performers.
