How far can a human being escape from his past and deny his nature in order to become someone else?

Invitation takes the world of contemporary woman as a starting point. Society has pushed women to accept the idea that the female temperament is very different from the male. This has guided her to reveal a personality based on submission, delicacy and co-dependency, among other characteristics. Throughout this choreography, the protagonist reveals a nature that clearly contrasts with the male dancers’ performance. Nevertheless, a combination of threat and seduction incites her to transform completely into what she perceives in the male roles.

Invitation recreates the case of a woman that forgets who she is and allows the circumstances surrounding her to influence her to the point where she completes an unexpected metamorphosis. The invitation to perform a transformation seems to come from the two male dancers. But in reality the men are purely as a catalyst for change. The true motivation emerges from mere competitiveness.
