Valentina Wong

From Non-Existent Futures


Production Details / Press Releases

A choreographic solo exploration that takes as a departure point the embodiment of speculative and dystopian landscapes, operating through an ongoing relational process with different materials which allow the constant cycle of mutation and reconfiguration of the body. In a semiotic chain of living paintings, this body is immersed, mobilized, and affected by the passage of time and deep contemplation, opening readings in a liminal space between the pictorial and the performative, evoking nuanced forms of presence and memories of a non-existent future.

The research is centered around open questions and themes such as the feeling of loss of the world, the end of times, and the attempt to decolonize futuristic imaginaries.

The audience will be invited to experience this performance accompanied by a suggested playlist, using their own mobile phones and headphones. The playlist will be available on various platforms and can be accessed via QR codes at the entrance. Each person can individually change, skip songs, or simply take their headphones off and embrace silence.
