WE CAN DANCE

 

WE CAN DANCE is an act of celebration, it's a solo or an accompanied solo or rather an invitation to dance or maybe, tal vez, solo, quizás, a lo mejor, también, perhaps a disco space. This piece moves between what’s possible and what’s forbidden by means of the laws that regulate or ban the act of dancing in different places, in order to question where personal and external limits lie. This is a piece about the act of dancing, about what moves us.

WE CAN DANCE  starts from that first step that is taken before dancing, in a disco, the dance temple. Once it's started it's difficult to stop it, you get into that wiggle, into that swinging, into that disco groove. It's built around that first gesture; at what moment does dance start? when can you say you are dancing? what happens when it's done at places where it's forbidden? 

A staged game constructed from the cogs represented by three bodies on stage: the dj body, the lighting body, and the dancing body.
