UTOPÍAS HABITADAS proposes a choreographic creation that relates directly to diverse spaces, whether for the stage or museums. The choreography is part of a reflection on the space the piece takes on, an object of study, to arrive at the internal space of the bodies and their movements throughout a constant dialogue.

 

It is an opportunity to show contemporary dance as a tool and form of discovery by way of movement. One discovers a second space, in which aspects that don’t seem obvious at first, become evident, such as a transcendent relationship with textures, light, shadow, weight, lightness and with all of the elements that inspire a body to move or to stay still throughout magnetic coordinates, hidden in the architecture and that are made up of a series of sketches that together make up the memory of the place.

 

One dares to create an interaction that travels through the understood space as a perception and the movement as a symbolic construction of the space. More than establishing a relationship with the setting, dance values a narrative dimension, as an extension of the skin, and although it is external, it also pertains to the body. And the erected space can also be interpreted as a sketch for the movement, which may contain and define possibilities inspired by it.

 

THE SPACE IS CONDITIONAL TO THE MOVEMENT.

THE MOVEMENT IS CONDITIONAL TO THE SPACE.
