                            QUISO NEGRO

Pero allí donde está el peligro crece también lo que salva
F. Hölderlin

Quiso Negro
deals with the idea of disappearance through action, exploring the ritual use of acoustic, rhythmic, kinetic and iconographic patterns. For this reason, it draws on tarantism and its arsenal of myths to traverse a wide-ranging, even contradictory, spectrum of possession scenarios and actual catharsis: from forms of duel in ritualised burials to the unregulated ecstasy of the rave.

The work seeks the potential of the body and the image on stage to go beyond the choreographic.

Quiso negro speaks of death in everyone, and can be seen as a journey through its vitalistic aspects: a katabasis, a festive descent.
