Caida Libre explores an essential characteristic of our nature: the survival. Sharon deepens into the way groups are formed to create a support, a physical and emotional net that allows the individual to fall down and stand up again. This intention emerges as a result of the need to find freedom space for each individual within a group.
Our survival is a vertical issue: standing up after falling down is a never-ending cycle repeated day after day. Although we all take part in this asymmetric dynamics, each one feels it as unique and non-transferable. Immersed in groups, we always try to find the sense, the freedom, checking if a “free fall” is possible.
We asked ourselves how a group can facilitate this fall, serving as a source of encouragement and support so that individuals can find freedom, entrusting themselves to their own nature, and continue along their path, in the same way that a pool of still water resists plunging into a waterfall until the thrust of the current propels it into its own free fall.
