False Cognate is inspired by the relationship the choreographer has with the Bible and the confrontation he suffers through it. False Cognate is a personal journey that originates in the mind, and arises from confusions that might occur during an inner conversation. There are misinterpretations in meanings and significations, when one comes to believe concepts that are a lie, an illusion or an unresolved riddle. False Cognate is a term used to describe when two words in different languages are similar in form and pronunciation, but have different roots, hence different meanings.
