Performance: 'Let Sleeping Dogs Lie' by Laura Aris Alvarez
Let Sleeping Dogs Lie is a visceral portrait of a woman imprisoned between memory and premonitions - like a giant torn to pieces by two wild horses pulling in opposite directions. The past and the future are just mirrored compartments that could break.
It's a performance about pain, loss, wanderlust, love, and family. Through reflections on personal issues channeling into the public sphere, the work creates narrative fragments as it looks for evocative images of beauty and emotional power.
It's not she in the world, but the world within her that is depicted. It's inside of her that all of the changes are happening. The stage becomes an installation and it's details become the scenography.

Performance: 'Cualquier mañana' by Laura Aris & Álvaro Esteban
An emotional reflexion about the natural sadness of broken things. Any given morning that the pieces of the puzzle doesn't fit like they once did. A physical journey to the present to realise that the past does not come back. This extremely intense duet is very elaborated and original.
Only two bodies but they totally occupy the whole dance floor. The music of Roger Marin with no melody; just emphasizing the movement with basic sounds; percussions and effects. As the movement progresses, the duet evolves in a relationship. The work of the upper limbs is remarkable, in complete loss of voltage alternating effort. Men and women have need of contact , you need to feel and be felt as well as both of them need to fill in the physical and emotional voids. Without her, he would fall. Without him she would fall.
