"Bestia" explores the inner beast in humans and its relevance between energy and nature. Beast energy happens in our natural world, allowing us an opportunity to investigate its power from a primal context. We recognize the flow of its energy, but most of the time it is restricted and contained under a set of orders that maintains a civilized community.

Our collaborative dialogue emerges from contemporary dance and percussion sounds, framed in a seasonal context: summer, fall, winter and spring. Each season is a standalone piece so the beast's appearance is changing and manifesting itself in various ways.

From our research, these questions have arisen: what does the inner beast look like? How does it manifest?
