Piel sobre Tierra - Espejo envuelve Piel is the union of two different long duration (min. 5 hours non stop) performances; one about freedom, one about love.
Valentina Carlone, Piel sobre Tierra, (Skin, earth, seeds. 2.35 x 1.50)
This performance comes from my desire to investigate what the word “freedom” means to me.
During this process I didn't find any answers, but some questions found me:
- Having a lot of options is like having none?
- How can I remain free in my pursuit of freedom?
- The world is too big and I’m too restless; what can I do?
Bea Gonzàlez, Espejo envuelve Piel, (Sheet of mirror, skin. 2.35 x 1.50)
This performance comes from my desire to find love again, to resonate again, to be naked, and to strip another.
Only upon knowing myself can I know the other, the world. The only way to find love isn't to look at each other, but to see each other.
The Human Time Site Specific format facilitates a very specific investigacion with time, space and human being.
Starting from personal inquietudes and life experience, in an unconventional space, and during a large frame of time (min. 5 hours non stop), the performers interact with one spectator at time in order to facilitate a real and genuine encounter with every person.
In this encounter, based on the principle of non-fiction, performers abandons the concept of role and make-believe, revealing intimate aspects of themselves and share actions that are truly happening in the here and now.
Every encounter is an unique experience that generates very personal responses in the spectator. Performer and spectator are both receptive and responsive to one another in order to share openness and vulnerability; they become both creators and protagonists of a deeply experiential universe.
