SYNOPSIS

In Thick Skin, Helena reflects to us a fragment of the path she has traveled so far, through her emotional and physical experience.

Physical distortions are an echo of what occurs in thought. In turn, what arises from the body can manifest in our mind. Fear, joy, urgency, pain.

Helena wants to celebrate her dance despite all this. Without ignoring what happened, giving space to what scares and disturbs her, but at the same time liberating her.

BIO

Helena Olmedo was born in Barcelona, Spain. After her studies in Conservatori de l’Institut del Teatre (Barcelona) and Codarts University of Arts (Rotterdam), Helena joined Vertigo Dance Company (Israel).
