The Construction

 

The construction is a performative- interactive proposal for two performers, 16 boxes and a device. A performance about what we build, about the products of the excess and the persistance of attempting. Persisting in attempting is, in these times of foamig structure, an act of courage. At the end of the performance, when the lights are switched on, we can play the game of building our city all together.

The construction is part of a series of pieces that research the connection between architecture, body and technology through the building process. This piece consists of two parts: a performative one with two performers and an interactive one which includes audiovisuals and the audience’s participation.

Choreografic practice focuses on assembling and dismantling. The body keeps busy by doing and undoing. The tools are: action scores, stating and remembering, dialogue with objects and their nature, dialogue between the performers, the construction-deconstruction of the body and the opening of abstract spaces to becompleted by the audience’s imagination.

The installation remains as a landscape of boxes. The audience are invited to walk through them. The boxes are also used as a screen for a video projection. The projection is a streaming video recorded and shown in real time with a five- second delay. As they walk, they interact with the images projected. A playful atmosphere is created where people discuss the displacement and move within the device.
