This new creation project is choreographed by GN | MC Guy Nader | Maria Campos for the Xiexin Dance Theatre. As the co-comission by SIDCT. It is based on the vocabulary that the tandem has been developing in their latest creations using specific physical tasks that involve patterns of repetition, weight and group collaboration characterized by high precision in relation to time and space.
Their minimalistic approach in dealing with those elementary notions steers our attention to a deep analysis of the body mechanics and the anatomy of collaboration between multiple bodies in action. GN|MC’s work focuses in creating group dynamic constellations based on the complicity of each individual that constantly networks with the others emphasizing a unique mass of bodies which ceaselessly defies gravity.
A composition generated by the accumulation of actions and movements in different parts of space and at different times that eventually form a single space in the same time-share. Forming a set of actions in the same space-constellation where elements such as repetition, variation and expansion create a space of harmony and coordination among the different volumes and spatial architecture.
Tracing the space we play with the memory of the viewer and the passage of time through the strokes that mark the movements in space as footprints or islands of concrete actions.
