A hypnotic underwater performance installation

This unusual and beautifully lit show is set in a purpose-built pool. Peeking through portholes, children discover underwater scenes and gravity-defying movements that are wonderfully evocative.

Feet, arms, hands, and legs appear and become strange creatures magnified by water, as the two graceful performers play and try to find each other in an affectionate and powerful display. The borders between inside and outside blur in a hypnotic swirl. The constant movement of the water combined with colourful light beams create a gigantic kaleidoscope in which the audience is immersed.

Primo is supported by Fonds Darstellende Künste e.V., Kunststiftung NRW and Small size, big citizens - Widening of the European Network for the diffusion of the performing arts for early years.

“Primo is a standout hit… Zinola and González’s act of graceful movement, floating and splashing through water is, genuinely, a celebration of the human form.” The Guardian
