OPEN REHEARSAL WITH LIMITED CAPACITY UNDER RESERVATION ON JULY 7 AT THE CANAL PERFORMING ARTS CENTER, SALT, GIRONA

At a certain point in my career I understood that when it came down to it, my work was to give light and value to things which appear not to have either, and vice versa. This is the most important function of the artist, since he must be able to lift himself out of inertia, blindspots and conventions, to stand back and, with a bit of luck, enderezer something in his life and, to an extent, in society itself. In other words, being able to change our view is the only thing we should aspire to in order to face the dark corners of the psyche and the insondables mechanisms that groups of humans drag around with them.

It is with this aim in sight that the manipulator of objects works, looking and looking again at the material, passing it from one hand to another, investigating it on every scale to find new and unexpected uses that will reveal the profound nature that makes it what it is, and above all everything that it could be, since the object is always a projection of ourselves.

So much so that the main subject of this project is myself, the purported artist, a crude metaphor for the individual. Perhaps the act of making art is in fact by definition a sacrifice. Every song, every show, may involve throwing something of supposed value on the fire. The manipulator of objects works to visualise shadow and does in fact make it flesh. The manipulator of objects accompanies the artist into the abyss: the abyss of loss of identity, loss of image, loss of reason and loss of courage. Maybe he is the one who needs the opulent, blind and arrogant concept and way of life that we have as a society.

So the musical artist and his shadow on stage will perform a kind of naked ritual full of songs, sounds, dreams and symbols, spoken words, vomited texts, confessions, darkness, epiphanies, dances, catharsis and tiny gestures that contain the subtle fight to the death between necessary, deceitful meaning and nothingness.

OPEN REHEARSAL WITH LIMITED CAPACITY UNDER RESERVATION BY COVID MEASURES, MAXIMUM 20 PEOPLE

R.A.V.E. (Revolutionary Group for Voluntary Extermination)
“The absence of a future has already begun. The that has finished arrived, yet again, which suggests that perhaps it has never ceased beginning…” (from the book “Is There A World To Come” by Déborah Danowski and Eduardo Viveiros de Castro).

Starting from the idea of the finite, limit and end, an instantaneous device for composition is put into play in the form of a solo.
The future, the idea of the cycle, of returning to the known, coming back, implacable time, permanence versus change, the indefinite, the foreseeable, endurance and incessant transformation, are some of the starting points for the construction of this piece which, inevitably, in broaching hypotheses on the future must also deal with beginnings.

( Federica Folco, Idoia Zabaleta )

Holding this residency at L'animal a l’esquena offers the opportunity to revisit a space I am fond of, full of care and motivation which invites one to go deeper into the complexities of our practice. The project emerged from the dialogue between our desires and the special circumstances our communities are living through at the moment. Within the framework of the project I have been working on for several years, Insurrección del sensible (Insurrection of the Sensitive), I propose, in collaboration with Idoia Zabaleta, to investigate and create experiences that promote plural, porous, dynamic, diverse and shared bodies.

( Garbiñe Ortega )

Whether in Spain or abroad, there are hardly any venues or publications dedicated exclusively to film curation. One research project by the curator and editor Garbiñe Ortega is precisely to create spaces for reflection, the exchange of ideas and education about the practice of curation in different spaces and formats.

Ayara Hernández
( Ayara Hernández )

Every piece of work I do begins (or continues) with the desire to work on something latent that is pushing to come out. The process is set up with a group of people in a very intuitive way, trying out many things that sometimes don’t seem to come to anything, big ideas appearing and falling away, crises following upon discoveries, until the material is there. At a certain moment, decisions are made that mould the work, we mourn what is to be left out and celebrate what remains (this is the moment when the work itself takes its own decisions and responds to its own needs, becoming somehow independent from us). When the piece is first performed the public arrive, and colleagues, and the conversation begins and we begin to understand what we have made, this living thing. The “new” creation that I want to make comes from certain concerns that still remain from my previous pieces: En la sombra de un elefante (In the Shade of an Elephant) and Retrato de un monstruo (Portrait of a Monster).

Neti Neti

Presentation :
On 29/07/2021 at 20:00 in Celrà (Celrà)

Amalia Fernández
( Amalia Fernández )

A project by Amalia Fernández accompanied by Monica Muntaner and Catherine Sardella. Neti Neti is a Hindu concept meaning something like “neither this nor that”. It is a method for growing closer to the comprehension of the divine, the absolute, the origin of existence, or whatever you care to call it. This understanding not only cannot be reached by intellectual means, but demands that you should avoid logical reasoning if it is to be achieved.

We press Ctrl + S to keep a document, a file, a project, a dream, a life. Save, Protect, Shield. The need for protection. A safe. A house. Reclusion. Isolation. And a helmet, in case. And a first aid kit, in case. And a rubber ring, in case. And a flask full of water from Lourdes, in case. Or Carmelite water, better still. And a vest tucked into your trousers, in case it’s cold. And hold my hand, in case. And a bullet-proof jacket, in case? And a boxer’s mouth-guard, in case? A mask against contamination, in case? And latex gloves? Plastic gloves? Boxing gloves? Just in case? Maybe one rubber ring won’t be enough. Better take two. In case. Or a hundred. Just in case.
Control + S is a proposal for visual and object theatre, with live music, on the theme of the need for protection. Yes. When we began to talk about it in 2018, we could never have imagined that one day we’d be shut up at home to shield us from a threat.
