surviving_fragment I: everything is possible in this space in between

Tanztage Berlin 2014 | Sophiensæle

Production Details / Press Releases

In this first part of the trilogy Surviving, the choreographer from Buenos Aires puts herself center stage. Juliana Piquero’s precise movements are paired with industrial lighting and sound design. She shows us a world in which bodies exist in space as particles woven into structures. She works skillfully with constraints, with an almost rule-based system, out of which she nonetheless finds ways to move. The potentiality and vitality of every moment is made visible through movement loops. From the here and now it could continue like this, or like this, or this. The result is masterful instability.

Juliana Piquero is an artist who consistently implements her vision. During her time in Berlin she found a group of artistic colleagues to work with. Among other things, this successful collaboration led to the Stockholm Award for Innovation in Performance 2013 for Surviving_Fragment I.

„What can we have more in common than a body? What happen if there is no body to interact with? It is a utopian world where collaborative processes are expressed within an abstract structure between movement, light and sound. It is an atmospheric journey through different physical conditions. “everything is possible in this space in between” is a path in which we undertake obstacles and use them as potentiated vitality.“ Juliana Piquero
