Join us for a double bill of Dance excellence with :
Teresa Phuti Mojela & Javier Velazquez Cabrero coproduce a piece in which minimal, settle and small gestures take an important place. The dancers reflect on how we physically relate to people who are far away. From people who have left the physical world, to characters relevant to the collective imagination.The construction of the work is based on the physicality of these projections, memories and imaginaries.
Soundtrack : Recycling Sounds / Persian Surgery Dervishes - Terry Riley
BLACK PSYCHOLOGY, BULLSHIT :
Black Psychology, Bull Shit is a dance duet that speaks about the notion of psychology and how the practice is closely associated to the white people or people who are rich or sort. The work looks at what it means for black people when they speak about Psychology.
Often in the black culture or society, speaking about issues and problems is not encouraged and it is seen as something that one should deal with on their own or intimately. Black culture does not encourage the notion of psychology whereas in the white supreme culture, psychology plays a big role especially when things fall apart.
The work performed by two dancers, in a set up that is similar to a consultation room. This is where then everything is played out just by two dancers being in a situation that they themselves are not sure of and are not voluntarily there.
The work explores the emotional aspects that come through the physicalizing of movement.
