La conspiración de las formas is a dance performance with three women and a block of concrete. A ritual in which the audience is invited to witness from closely a process of metamorphosis, alchemy and recycling: they hold the block, they hammer it, knead it, rub it, swallow it, transforming it into something else.

In the performance, the block of concrete appears as an object and as a metaphor: the concrete is what is there, everywhere in our urban lives, supporting the structures in which we live, think, work and feel, shaping the world as we know it today. The work addresses in a poetic way the question of how to relate with the world we had built. What relationship is possible between destroying and recycling, between digesting and exorcizing?

Amparo González Sola presented a first version of this work a few years ago in Buenos Aires. The work had a few presentations in Argentina and was shelved for a while because of her migration to Europe. The new version of this work will premiere in the Spring Performing Arts Festival in Utrecht in May 2023 after a series of residencies at workspacebrussels (Brussels), The grey space in the middle (The Hague) and Dansateliers (Rotterdam).
