Dances in little format - double bill 1: caterina daniela mora jara & Loucka Fiagan
Patagonian dancer caterina daniela mora jara brings together different dance traditions and continents into a translation from ballet to Argentinian malambo, accented with Argentinian mate and spicy Chilean ají, stretched like a fourteen-year-old ballerina. Expect a lot of traditional dances and eclectic surtitles in the solo In the name of another bastard-cheap lecture-performance (rather bastard than cheap).
In a solo that is halfway between a lecture and a sound performance, versatile artist Loucka Fiagan explores unconscious embodiments and the limits of language. In a game with his voice, his body, sounds and the position of the audience, Loucka poses questions about violence and deception.
Dances in little format
For the past two years, dancer and researcher caterina daniela mora jara has been one of workspacebrussels’ resident artists. During the Open Studios she will round off her trajectory with a mini-festival in which she invites five other artists to share the stage with her. Dances in little format connects different dances and dance traditions: the somatic, the virtuoso, sound journeys, small movements. After a three-week research residency focused on Conflicted Embodiment, the six artists invite the public to become part of their process. From transoceanic trajectories to displacement and torsion in colonial legacies of dance experience: the performers put ‘dance’ into question and enjoy dancing for its own sake.
