In this emblematic piece, choreographer Guilherme Botelho takes the audience on a journey of anonymous characters walking, running, falling, getting up, stopping and starting again. An ode to life, to its brute force, its infinite energy and the enigmatic laws that rule the world.
The Universidad de San Martin in Argentina has invited Alias Compagnie for June 2017 to perform «Sideways rain» as well as three other pieces, which together form the trilogy «Distancia». Dancers from the university will rehearse a new version of «IYOUHESHEITWEYOUTHEY», and «Antes» will be performed by dancers of both companies. All three pieces will later go on tour in Argentina.
