LARANDLAND addresses the city as motif and landscape. It is an aesthetic and abstract work criss-crossed by concrete situations that speak of the inscrutable city, like a living organism, a great body, where interconnected cells and systems invent its shape.
I am interested in the dynamics, the rhythms, the textures, the circuits, the movement become landscape.
The stage space and, especially, the danse are themselves spaces where each movement writes over the previous one, erases the previous one and gives way to many situations that overlap each other in a continuous palimpsest.
LARANDLAND is presented in three parts. The first, Palimpsest, ésis a composition work in continual metamorphosis, seven dancers are the space and the landscape. The second part, Siameses, is a more intimate fragment where different duets take place, and here the space of the dance is the body of the Other. And the third part, Track, which is based on velocity, the risk and the trace, is the most energetic piece.Àngels Margarit
...The catalogue of the forms is immense: until
each form has not found its city, new
cities will continue to be born. Where the forms
exhaust their variations and are undone, the end
of cities begins. In the last maps,
grids are diluted without beginning or end, city
with the form of Los Angeles, with the form of
Kyoto-Osaka, with no form.
