- Ó is a choreography directed by Cristian Duarte created in the context of the artistic residency Lote where the choreographer has been developing his research in dance since 2011.
With the interest for minimalism in dance and the sensoriality of movement, this creation manifests the will to establish a tactile dramaturgy through the ceaseless modulation of perception and affection. In an attempt to move away from the tragic hemisphere present in Orpheus’s Greek narrative – anchoring reference of this creation – the backward glance, that made him supposedly lose Eurydice, became a device for interrogating time as matter.
It is in the gesture of looking backwards as a movement of bending, and updating of the experience, that the work bets on sharing with the public the construction of a field of empathy and to establish a dilation of the senses.
