Microdances

ABOUT THE WORK

Starting from the thought that identity is a construction in confrontation between what is shown and what is observed and called, a space for reflection is established through micro dances that show this "building confronting" existing in the mutual expectations between the performer and the audience. What is expected of a dance professional's body? What is the commitment of this "dancing body" to the audience? What dance is expected to happen? What is the power of denunciation that exists in bodies that seek to reconfigure the "natural" contract between movement and entertainment? The postcard body, the corpolatra, the propaganda body, as well as other "outdoor" identities, also appear in this scenic game. But when these identities are maximized and recontextualized, what happens to the eyes of those who observe them? What can be expected from this confrontation?
