Audience Talk following 'A Passo Di Mulo'
The materiality of the body and the varied conditions it can bear and generate is the central force behind the choreographic research of Lina Gómez and her collaborators. With a precious and unique dialogue between movement, music and light, A Passo di Mulo generates a vibrating landscape of earth, togetherness and persistence.1 “Today I wander with a fixed but flexible gaze, with my knees light, and my feet continuously submerged in the dust, in the mud, in the water, in the stone. I lose myself in the attempt to continue. I bear the vertical burden of my head, I move and plunge, plunge and move, always forward, as Doña Esperanza used to say.” Lina Gómez2 Mmakgosi Kgabi, Dancer, choreographer
In the Audience Talk after the performance there will be time to gain insight into the practices and the specific artistic process of 'A Passo Di Muli'. Lina Gómez and her collaborators offer to discuss and exchange on the topic of restaging as artistic research, concerning the practices and process of re-doing and re-staging. How can you 'bring back' physical materiality of the body and to what extend is it still different every time you perform.
