Dance piece for a quartet of performers on roller-skates, approaching states of detonation and death drive.
Addressing an explosive contemporaneity, simultaneously physical and technological, the choreographic composition is based on spatial organization devices, related to speed sports, where the use of prostheses (roller-skates), allows access to the physicality that involves risk and accident.
The plastic dimension of the gesture, proposes the articulation of a group of dancers in a being of apparent impossibility, equipped with moods, desires and libido, projecting the body to an extreme otherness and opening the ground for fiction.
CABRAQIMERA is a project created in dialogue with the POROMECHANICS exhibition.
