Alain Platel founded Les Ballets C. de B. in 1984. A dynamic dance and theatre collective, the company is renowned for its powerful theatrical dance performances. This new creation was initiated by actress Elsie de Brauw, who asked Platel to make a performance using both dancers and actors. The starting point is Marco Prado's documentary Estamira, telling the story of a woman who suffers from schizophrenia and who lives and works in a Brazilian waste disposal site. She has developed her own very particular way of communicating with the small community she lives in, giving rise to the theme of the piece: how to live or even survive with dignity under nearly impossible circumstances.
