January 07 | BiPoC-only: The show on 07.01 is exclusively for people who position themselves as BIPoC.

Drawing inspiration from the belief that masks can transcend the identity and evoke altered states of consciousness, this performance delves into the depths of the self, venturing beyond the familiar. Through movement, sound and visuals, this piece investigates the hybrid nature of identity, revealing how masks can conceal, disclose, protect and be used to protest. It explores desires, fears and vulnerability in a digital age, where unmasking becomes a symbol of perpetual change; challenging our perceptions of reality. NuReal Dust conjures contrasting moods, from introspective contemplation to the ecstasy of anonymity, inviting the audience to find their own narratives within.
