Production Details / Press Releases
This choreographic work is inspired by “Historias Posibles del Cuerpo (1)” (2013), which itself was inspired by Stephen Hawking’s “A Brief History of Time”. In “Historias Posibles del Cuerpo (2)” (Possible stories of the body), Anabella Pareja Robinson doesn’t only go through the stories a body could probably tell, but also through some (fictional and actual) ones that happened to her throughout the creative process. It might be, that “Historias Posibles del Cuerpo (2)” is more closely inspired by “The Theory of Everything” (also by Stephen Hawking), though Anabella hasn’t even read it yet.
The dance collective COLECTIVO AM is this year’s guest of the festival. Members of the collective present two performances and a showing including a discussion forum. Colectivo AM was born at the end of 2010, after a funeral service taking place in the Teatro de la Danza, in Mexico City, during the closing stage of the choreographic project Sala Tomada. The current members of this collective are choreography and live arts related artists, passionated about history, advocates for reflection and for self-criticism. Though various nationalities gather here, all of them are mostly based and developing their work in Mexico City. Every member has their own artistic project (be it choreographic, performative, theoretical) but in AM they have found a platform for exchange and negotiation, for sharing processes, questioning methods, comparing results, proposing academic activities, and for working collectively around performance projects.
