Space is one of the essential elements of my work, where dance, like some ephemeral, organic architecture, like a trace of motion, a weave of situations, expresses a physical thought, an aesthetic, a way of being and living the scene.
Spaces talk to me; I say space and I don’t mean a place but a movement, which is what really creates space and/or reorders it, gives it quality: liquid, weighted, tense, dense, light, sharp, sensual...
The body in movement is what creates space and constructs physical stories.
This is a project that takes as its central motif urban space; its protagonists are its users.
It is based on the observation of public spaces; video becomes a fundamental tool, a notebook, sketch pad and work diary. From this element, the choreographer will build a gaze on which to later base the scenic discourse. Conceived as a process, it will be developed in different phases that give rise to works with different formats and intentions.
Public squares, benches, metro stations, street corners, phone booths, street crossings... collections of routines, daily occurrences and chance will be the object of the gaze of the choreographer, observer of a choreography of infinite instantaneous compositions constantly written by anonymous bodies….
During four representations, five dancers and some thirty other people represent themselves. What is staged is a casting of people of all ages to compose a sample of urban weave; entirely unique people who bring their natural gestures, spontaneous and ordinary, to a choreography that is not previously defined but that comes out instantaneously through the actions and the games proposed.
Each presentation is unique and each day different people are invited to participate in this casting. They work with a fixed team and with a more or less determined script whose basic ingredients are improvisation and chance.
