- OOOA - SOLO
OOOA - SOLOPRINT THIS PAGE
Clara Guémas has been working for several years as an artist and choreographer in prisons. She questions the place of the body in these isolated spaces and the restrained and controlled life in these prisons. In this first cycle of her choreographic research (2012-2018) into the concept of freedom, she emphasizes 'memory', which throws a glance at both the past and the future, between retrospection and projection.
In her solo version of oooa she works in a space of 9 square metres, the size of a prison cell. Within this 'limited' space a network weaves itself, a desire to make connections visible. The memory of this weaving lives on in the body and spreads in space like a forgotten memory, a layered memory, traumatic memories... Resilience.
