A body imprisoned in a terrarium – a pathetic and exhausted landscape – which through dance plays host to figures and images that push it towards a future as yet nameless and shapeless.
With a hesitant dance, in Crisálida we propose to blur the surroundings of the human being, working elastically between recognisable images and as yet undiscovered bodies, in order to welcome not only what is known, our exhausted present, but also what is unrecognizable and is yet to come. Paul Celan insisted on the dialogic nature of the poem (and by extension, art), claiming that the poem is always coming, always en route to something. “To what?” he wonders. “To something open, occupiable, perhaps to an accessible You.” The question that we have from the start is: what happens when this You is not accessible, but it has become completely dry, it has forgotten its essential ability to listen and receive?
Antes Collado is a multiform artist and researcher who reflects on performance, the body and movement.
