3. Paulo Berberan / Kendra Horsburg / Birdgang Dance Ltd - KENDRA

KENDRA is an abstract insight into different sides of a personality. The hidden truths, beautiful darkness’s and guises that are put up to protect. The inner bird, the lone soldier, the lover, the adrenalin seeker…. the Woman. This is not an autobiography, but more a visual telling of Paulo Berberan’s imagination inspired by his discovery of Kendra.
