Nemcatacoa Teatro, from Bogota, Colombia, presents Landscape Re-Invention Society.  A mobile spectacle on stilts that intervenes in the streets of any place with acrobatic language and live music.  Silent figures move through the streets, plazas, passageways and corners of any place. Their bodies explore the details of the architecture to reinvent it. Subtle music serves as a thread between the pedestrians and this mobile society which will create images that fit into the space and its context. Ecstatic images that can go from heartbreaking to hopeful. A society open to a dialog with whoever lives there, a poetic-visual dialog in which reflection and silence acquire a different value than usual. The unity of color and movement are part of the language of the Landscape Reinvention Society, which passes by like a flock of birds.
