Parents are older than their children. Between them lies the gulf of a whole generation. Yet when children grow up, they grow apart from their parents. The Cuban dancer Alexis Fernández takes the stage with his son Paulo. They dance together. It is an acrobatic dance full of unbridled energy. With humour and optimism, it explores the relationship between father and son in all its heights and depths. Experience encounters curiosity. Illusions stand beside failures, trust beside withdrawal, tiredness beside excitement. Alexis and Paulo dance a dialogue, one that builds a bridge between the generations. “Pink Unicorns” takes place as part of the “Purple” Festival, a dance festival for young audiences.
