“How to free ourselves from the points of subjectivation that fix us, that nail us to the dominant reality? Start the consciousness of the subject to turn it into a means of exploration, ripping the unconscious out of significance and interpretation to turn it into a true production is surely neither more nor less difficult than ripping the body out of the organism” Gilles Deleuze
We invite you to live a sensory and choreographic experience, and ask yourselves once again “where is the world around us going?”. Through disciplines such as dance, magic, theater and aerial dance, we confront this era in which the concept of person is replaced by that of percentage. Bamboo is a metaphor in this work, to preserve flexibility even in the rigid structures that often contain us.
The cast of this work is made up of the creative interpreters: Thelma Darkings Bucknam, Elmer Gamboa Cubillo, Felipe Alvarado González, Sol Pardo Carballo, Karen Hidalgo Montoya, Daira Serrano Petyuh and Roy Rodríguez Saborío, under the technical direction of Keylor Rojas Fernández and the artistic direction of Sol Carballo. The original music was composed by Carlos Pardo Mannucci and the scenery designed by Vequium.
Next Friday, July 9th at 5:45 p.m. The show “Along the bamboo route” will be premiered at the Dance Theater located in the CENAC (formerly FANAL). This short season will only take place that weekend. The performance on Saturday 10th will be at 5:45 p.m. and Sunday 11th at 5:00 p.m. The entrance has a cost for the general public of ¢ 6,000-, and for students, seniors and members of ANATRADANZA of ¢ 4,600-, both VAT included.
