Bold, vibrant physical theatre from Brazil – a poignant and poetic reflection on human fragility in the face of the forces of nature.

Molhados&Secos | Wet&Dry, by Brazilian company ParaladosanjoS, is an almost word-free physical and visual performance; a poignant, poetic and sometimes comically absurd reflection on human fragility in the face of nature, inspired by the real and re-imagined stories of people who have suffered the onslaught of natural disasters. Four distinct scenes, directed by four different directors of international renown, explore the human capacity to overcome obstacles and survive extreme situations.
