Although the creation is still in the process of defining its language, the emerging thematic has been around notions of death and resurrection. Death and resurrection as physical processes in the body, as phases, as transformations of energy, as places that we inhabit and we depart from. Death and transformation not as a representation but rather as a question, a question whose goal is not to be answered but explored. In order to reveal the resilience, silence, force, fragility, vulnerability, of the human body and spirit through the physical phases of engagement and passing.
More specifically the artistic intention of my work is to create rich choreographic systems that aim to reveal the point of view of the performer. Rich as the multidisciplinary elements of AP&A’s vision ground our work in aesthetic, scenographic universes that support spatial and material negotiations with the body. Within these universes I am interested in a choreographic writing that operates as something that the interpreter is asked to be in negotiation with. Negotiations that can take the form of frames, concepts, athletic constraints, where through negotiation we reveal the individual and collective point of view, as much as the choreographers.
