a dance dispositif
Following his research on minimalism in dance and the sensoriality of movement, Cristian Duarte expresses in this creation the desire to establish a tactile dramaturgy through the incessant modulation of perception and affection.
As a meeting that is established between many instances, from the molecular to the most external, the piece invites the audience to form a field of empathy with the dancers. This feeling that we all can, and that moves us with a perspective foreign to us, is a fundamental movement for the work to establish an expansion of details and subtleties.
The myth of Orpheus, a reference established as a starting point, triggered a reflexive desire on how to re-signify the relational discourse present in the Greek narrative. In the insistence on establishing a thought far from the tragic hemisphere, Orpheus’ backward glance, which supposedly made him abandon all his libidinal investment in Eurydice, became, for us, a judgment. Every choice is faced with crossroads and choosing a world that includes the gesture of looking back, with all the metaphors that this should and can designate, consciously, brings to the work a movement that apprehends the future, close to an ecology of affections, and far from obedient frontality unable to twist the senses.
