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, alomejor, también, perhaps a disco space.

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 tic. 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? what relations does it have with the rules and conventions of the use of the space? This 'solo' talks about laws that regulate the act of dancing in different places. This is a piece about the act of dancing, about what moves us.
