“People like to keep certain distances between themselves and other people or things. And this invisible bubble of space that constitutes each person’s “territory” is one of the key dimensions of modern society.” (Edward T. Hall)

What is the right distance between people or the correct measurement for the space separating individuals? Is it to be measured in millimetres, metres, and is it always the same? This distance is manifested in a physical and emotional form. In this case, there is a distance between two men.

Breaking through barriers brings reactions, integrations and emotions: there is a paradoxical relationship where the body language is constantly changing.
These are the ideas behind Abstand, a show that is included in the Box Nova project and has been created by Luís Marrafa & António Cabrita, with choreography and music by Marrafa. It also incorporates additional music by Thom Yorke, the lead singer of Radiohead.
