Robinson on a cardboard island, a man slowly surveying the limits of his small world with dignity.
A house, a palm tree and a giant swan, everything is there, trival and yet so precious. Suddenly a few spots of rain can
be heard. Under this endless downpour, the house and everything else become liquid.

The man continues to walk, sees to his jobs and his dreams as best he can, to find a way of surviving in a world that is inexorably disappearing. Created in 2007, shortly after Hurricane Katrina passed over her hometown of New Orleans, in BLESSED Meg Stuart paints a landscape of ruins in the heart of which a man never gives up.
The choreographer lays down a challenge to performer Francisco Camacho, testing his physical endurance
and ability to move, with his presence and precision intact in a liquid and unstable world. More than a decade after it was created,
the work proves that it has stood the test
of time, unfortunately without losing any
of its topicality.
