«And water gave birth to the wind

which blew on the embers,

which in turn set the earth alight…»

Tonia Schilling

Following the work done on water with «Offrande», Tonia Schilling approached the element fire in «Fogo». Between silent glow and heated passion, the dancers evolve with a raising rythm, reaching a frenzy passion to become embers…


The play is presented in a trilogy along with «Safran» and «Offrande» under the title «Sources…», concept reworked in 2009, with two new creations «Souffle» (air) and «Beyond the Haze» (earth).
