The Rehearsal, part of the larger project The Neverstarting Story, toys with the audience by presenting a rehearsal, or perhaps the rehearsal of a rehearsal.

In this quirky and intriguing work, Spanish choreographer Cuqui Jerez uses the simple process of the rehearsal, an integral component of traditional theater practice, as a starting point from which she explores and questions reality.

"The curtain rises and we see the fiction within the fiction within the fiction within the fiction. The curtain falls."
—Cuqui Jerez
