Andrea Peña and Artists, CANADA
Untitled I, is an intriguing and magnetizing solo performance which explores human resilience; resilience as the capacity of a strained body to recover after deformation, where the body and the individual surrender and is transformed by alterations in its experience. The body creates an atmosphere of ever-changing phases through silent yet harmonic repetitions and invites the audience to observe resilience in this act.
6.58 presents an unusual, sensual, and rhythmic exploration of artificiality within our contemporary society, as three disarticulated tableaux. Five dancers in conversation with the hegemony of a machine, opera singer, and DJ, encounter artifice as a seductive force that wraps our experiences, interactions and the notion of a future human.
