Followed by Javier Velazquez Cabrero in collaboration with Teresa Phuti Mojela
Cabrero performs two duo pieces, putting into practice a collaborating methodology that he has been working with for the last 3 years, developed predominantly in collaboration with Mexican actor Pedro Mira.
His process takes into account the psychological relationship we have with our bodies and in turn it’s physical relationship to other bodies.
Together with Teresa Phuti Mojela, 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.
