With the exhaustion of the post-modern human paradigm, the appearance of a New Human Being is suggested, who looks out upon the archaic, primitive and tribal landscape, of which the African continent is the emblematic representation: Africa, screaming and violated, regardless the endless massacres it has endured from time immemorial, still succeeds in restoring its vision of hope. Like Welcome to my world, this piece will be focused in a dance composition that is sliced down and de-boned – an empty field of perception where there is a state of unreality, a visionary state. The apparently simple score of gestures and movements nevertheless leads one into the complexity of a work on ‘presence’, on per formative act, on a perception of the nervous system to the detriment of the muscular. Within the choreographic script there is an amplification of natural phenomena, phenomena that we normally take for granted, in order to present them visually as landscapes that overflow here into a form of lay spirituality, a metaphysics of the body, a pilgrimage of meditation.
