What’s at stake in the performative act where life and art unfold and touch each other in the space of dance? Body itself? And what body is that? “DSÍ” has challenged us with the encounter with this other body space. Underneath infinite layers of skin, we incessantly search to touch the subtle surface of a preverbal, imaginary, perceptive, powerful and sensory body.
In this trajectory, memory, its real or fictional marks and instants of a life destabilize spaces of the body to reconnect it to new states of here and now.
Mirrorings of self, reflections of the other that cross and puncture the fine layer of performative action mix and disintegrate themselves in light particles that repel and attract the instant of a generating gesture. And the experience is reproduced.
The dancer metamorphoses into another body. Corpse, fetus, flower, stone, tree, insect, ancestor. To welcome this chaosmos, it needs to become an incandescent emptiness crossed by alien forces and intensities. The dancer sends signals from a funeral pyre that has already turned to ashes.
But my body is not mine! He has a memory. Geological body. How to access this memory that life’s earthquakes have thrown from the top down in the deepest layers? It ages invisibly every second. Not the wishes. Our bodies that are not ours accompany us from afar carrying our lives that are not ours. It always passes to the side, on the blurred periphery of the field of vision.
The ballerina does not dance. Dreams of a body another. We are part of this dream and in the end we no longer know if she dreamed of us or if we are dancers dreaming. Now there’s only one body dilated to the entire space. And suddenly we’re breathing the same air. We all breathe the same air over and over again. Mouth to mouth. Melee. Apnea of life.
What is at stake in the performative event where life and art bend and touch each other in the right space of dance? The body itself? And what body is this?
DSÍ challenged us to encounter this other space in the body. Underneath infinite layers of skin, we seek incessantly to touch the subtle surface of a preverbal, imaginary, perceptive, potent and sensory body.
Along this path, memory, its real or fictional marks and the moments of a life destabilized places in this body to reconnect it to new states in the here and now.
Mirrors of the self, reflections of the other that cross and perforate the thin layer of the performative action, mix and disintegrate into light particles that repulse and attract the moment of the gesture that is gestating. And the experience remakes itself.
