The term Aporia refers to reasoning where insoluble contradictions or paradoxes arise. Aporias appear as logical difficulties that are almost always speculative. In relation to this, and to the way we work on intimate matters in order to be able to represent them in performance, we asked ourselves a series of questions to set ourselves in motion. The chief one of these could be how to choreograph a relationship that is coming into being.

The starting point is a line or row of people in the space.
The performers are placed in a premeditated order from left to right, dancer next to performer: Raquel Gualtero - Núria Guiu - Magí Serra - Quim Bigas - Pere Jou - Txalo Toloza.

At first sight it’s a little anecdotal to begin a project in this way. It’s very simple, the interest lies in how the body in motion and its outward appearance relates within the structure of a ballet. How can we make a ballet between Dancers and Performers? How can they be mixed? What advantages and disadvantages will they each have? How can they each be themselves and at the same time form a single body? What will this combination of profiles have to offer?

Collaboration with La Poderosa, Barcelona

The project grew out of the two choreographers’ poetic and emotional need to express where they are in their lives. To go back, perhaps, over everything they have experienced, the music they like, the actions on stage that most move them or best represent them, their shared and individual interests and take it all further, to somewhere new. A fresh and truthful place.

La Poderosa has invited me to do a broadcast of the piece Escorzo as part of Hacer Historia(s)/Making (Hi)stor(y)ies.
This solo, created in 2003, was forged during a period which began for me when I started working with Oscar Dasí and Carmelo Salazar in 1995. At that time I was acting as a life model for Fine Arts students. The role of being observed as a body-object to be drawn or painted in real time gave me the foundations, the questions and the starting point to construct the kind of presence and movement that inhabits this piece.

Tools for Action

From 10/09/2018 to 14/09/2018

Mal Pelo

Mal Pelo offers a workshop in which to try out the mechanisms of action and what they may lead to. A look at movement and composition for the body in action. Precision, endurance, commitment, intensity, silence, absences, presences, punctuation, habitability, surrender, phrasing, punctuation, lineality, temporality, musicality, rhythm and composition are some of the terms we shall be looking at during the course.
To act: 1. To carry out an action 2. To make movements and gestures to make something understood 3. To command the action of a mechanism.

As an artist teaching, I want to share tips, thoughts, and accumulated experience in order
to inspire and encourage others to move forward along their own paths.
During my workshop, I will give technical exercises and lead improvisations to offer
participants tools that improve their awareness and expedite their access instinct in playful
bodies. However, attention to specifics of technique and subtle, detailed work are
important in my approach, as well.
We are all vulnerable: We all have strength and fragility, and living with both these qualities
is imperative to being genuine and living in a balanced way. Starting from this premise
and from our physicality as well as contact work, we will look for creative impulses that,
when released, offer us new possibilities for achievement. We will observe how,
sometimes, extreme qualities maintain a balanced tension, that the tension attracts
attention, and that many times, silence speaks.
Slowly, with some theatrical input, we will craft specific energies and clear images to give
meaning to movement and embody the tasks and ideas proposed.
