I have never liked the literary reliefs that usually the synopsis are. So I would like to be direct, as direct as I wanted it to be “Hora de Cierre” (Closing Time)
This show began to take shape in my head not in a really poetic way; but filling the “Mother’s profession” box in an inscription from my son’s school. Dancer? …
What is it supposed that I am now?
This thought and a quote from Graham, where he speaks about the double dancer’s death “More than any other human being, a dancer dies two deaths: the first, physic, when the body powerfully trained doesn’t reply as it would be expected.” were shaping the idea of this Solo.
Dancing preserves a kind of mental and physical youth, a voluntary stay of a fresh body, and a kind of negation of time. Certainly it represents a struggle against death, against the decrepitude of age.
“Hora de Cierre” (Closing Time) is a celebration of maturity and reconciliation with what I am now.
