Entities is a project that focuses on kinesthetic experience and reenactment of embodied archives. The project is presented through two different formats that address the audience in very distinct ways:

Entities – theater of gestures –
 is a dance performance that places gesture and embodied memory at the intersection between kinesthetic experience and aesthetic form.

April 14, 15, 16 at 19:00

Entities – immersion – is an immersive installation that provides a sensorial experience, and places the observer (the visitor) as the central medium of the work.

April 15 and 16, 21:30 to 00:30
April 17, 16:00 to 20:00

(the immersion lasts about 25 min, and the admission is for max 5 people at the time. Get specific information on the time slots and book your spot under the event )

Entities – theater of gestures –
is an abstract narration of three characters in a theatrical set-up; Lisa, Elise and Darío mold their dance negotiating between the kinesthetic impressions of an aestheticized movement language and the reenactment of their embodied history. The result is an excessive amount of gestures through which meanings, relations and characters appear as concrete but temporary forms.

Entities – theater of gestures – , which at its core questions the relation between audience and somatic practice, attempts to create a place where kinesthetic experience and aesthetic form co-exist and interact.

The work is developed trough a methodological process that aims at tweaking the spaces between the somatic experience of the gesture, the reenactment of embodied archives and the theatrical projection of these forms. 

The piece stages a transcendence between these realities; constant motion from immediate bodily sensations to culturally meaningful gestures that engender a multidimensional space.

In a web of multiple possible stories, fictional characters mix with a series of self-portraits that are (re)played – (re)lived – (re)interpreted – (re)invented, for continuous a meeting of incomplete narratives
