…moments of absence gathered in the body memory, no longer knowing where, or with whom, or how to dance forward.
A solo of desire and the discovery of an appetite for all that is absent.
One hour in length this dance-theatre work is a collaboration between dancer Pau Aran Gimeno, texts by the Peruvian poet César Moro, dramaturg Alberto Conejero and actress Consuelo Trujillo.
Pau Aran Gimeno questions:
How do I dance for, towards, and about, someone who is absent?How do I dance and express that which no longer exists? How do I dance after I have already danced an entire chapter? How do I dance now that my dance-card is full? How do I dance a new beginning?
This solo is born from all these questions, all of the moments of absence gathered in the body memory, no longer knowing where, or with whom, or how to dance forward. It is grounded in the vestiges of the road already travelled and in the road marked ahead.
The source of the inspirational texts comes from the poet César Moro, who was the founder of a poetic galaxy, as passionate and profound as it is unknown to many, even today.
