NO DANCING TODAY
No Dancing Today is a scenic event that exhibits a tribute to the body as its own and unique entity. I have taken inspiration and studied the corporeality and movements of some animals and people to develop this work. In this performance the conjunctural, accidental, and unexpected coexist through choreography, allowing the creation of a sublime moment, I combine technical and aesthetic tools with physical performance. I have been developing throughout my career an internal rotation of my lower extremities (intoeing), which I call “the body inverted” (el cuerpo invertido). This is at the heart of my choreography; through biomechanics I seek to evoke a unique moment that temporarily occupies the space. This occupation exists because I exist.
With this performance I am not looking to develop a new idea or a new concept. Rather, I am attempting to establish an experiential space where the scenic act itself plays the lead; a moment represented as the here and now. The work I have created lives in a zone of hybridization between dance and performance, moving between rehearsed choreography and improvisation. The exhibition is built from the use of two key elements, a mask and a turntable, so I combine technical and aesthetic tools with physical performance, covering my face with the mask which allows me to feel completely free and be someone else.
No Dancing Today is designed so it can occupy any space (galleries, black box, open stage or traditional stage). The audience is an important part of this performance, they can be as close or far away as they wish.
The performance is approximately 20 to 25 minutes (short version 15 minutes).
Silencio is a performance where I discover different possibilities of existing with the absence, the belonging, the imperative being that governs us, with the shadow of the other that ends up being our own shadow or reflection. It is a game of images, scenes and instants, where the viewer has the freedom to choose their participation in the performance directly or indirectly.
Silencio is a time to observe and feel. They are different atmospheres to contemplate and to choose; having the body and its theatricality as conductors of this performance.
This piece exist through a ridiculous torture that leads the performance in a state of tension.
Silencio is conceived from the theatricality, observation, desolation, context, handling objects and awareness the relationship body / space.
" Death only illuminates our lives, if death does not make sense, then life never had it ".
Alejandro González Iñarritu.
Approximately 20 minutes.
This scenic project is nomadic, it is a constantly changing duo.
The premise is the sensation that causes an imperative body which comes from the work SILENCIO. Consists of inviting different artists to perform this piece, sometimes it can be a dancer, other times a musician, a visual artist, etc.
Two proposals linked by the juxtaposition of images and scenic events that enrich and depend on each other. It is a possibility of dialogue between two visions, building from two languages, the fusion of two aesthetics that have a particular affinity and meet again in the scenic act.
The work uses different tools such as voice, improvisation, use of objects, physicality, to raise its own scenic speech. The audience and performers vary abruptly by different emotional states.
The piece exists, using the body as basic and primitive tool to convey a message, an apparent game of chance.
Approximately 45 minutes
Performance & Film
Performance unfolds in three scenes:
Una línea entre mirar y observar, entre ustedes y nosotros. Una línea que nos conecta y nos separa, una línea que nos trata diferente // A line between looking and observing, a line between us, a line that connects and separates. A line that treats us differently.
La fascinación por el terror // The fascination of terror.
My dream was different, it was not this, you were different too. Nothing differentiates you between the one who crosses with documents and the one who crosses through the desert // Mi sueño era distinto, no era este, tú eras diferente también. Nada te diferencia entre el que cruza con papeles y entre el que cruza a través el desierto.
Short Version 15 minutes // Full Version 30 minutes
“Ahora América es, para el mundo, nada más que los Estados Unidos: nosotros habitamos, a lo sumo, una sub América, una América de segunda clase, de nebulosa identificación.
Es América Latina, la región de las venas abiertas.”
