DARK is a visual and physical performance inspired by black holes. A black hole is an unlikely mystery. Every day somewhere in the universe one is born. It is the end of the life of a very massive star that can no longer carry its own weight and implodes. What remains is an area in space where gravity is so infinitely great that nothing, not even light, can escape. The features of black holes go against our deeply rooted intuitions about space and time. Near black holes these are completely distorted. The time close to a black hole passes by more slowly than at a great distance. And someone who falls into it never seems to disappear, even though he certainly does.
