“Amparo González Sola’s latest work provides a clear outline on how to stay abstract and poetic while sending a strong political message. For me, this choreography is a manifesto of resistance in the face of oppression, of deriving empowerment from vulnerability.” Grzegorz Reske, artistic director SPRING Festival
This choreographic work was developed in 2020-22 within the context of DAS Choreography, Amsterdam (AHK), and during residencies in Buenos Aires, Brussels and Zurich. A WIP was presented in Nov 2021 in the KVS Theater/ Festival Proximamente (BE). It was premiered in May 2022 in the SPRING Performing Art Festival (Utrecht), as a coproduction of the festival.
The piece unfolds in a hypnotic mesh in which choreographic traces accumulate and subtract, exposing the thickness of absence and time in its materiality.
