No [’rait] of spring

Based on his own experience as a dancer in Pina Bausch’s Le Sacre du Printemps, Josep Caballero García explores five iconic female roles of German dance history in the 70s and 80s.

Through interviews with former ensemble dancers and music excerpts, the historic material and memories are deconstructed and then assembled on stage. Loose movement sketches are spatially composed within a changing landscape of screened video talks and sound, and create a collage of the selected roles in a form of subjective reconstruction inspired by the interviewees. Within his movement exploration, dancer Luis Alberto Rodriguez is searching for a choreographic physicality beyond gender. The restrictions due to copyrights has substantially influenced working with the historical material and the use of original excerpts of video, movement, and music. No [‚rait] of spring indicates these gaps, but also utilizes them in order to find new ways of reconstruction. A composition of the collected material between dance performance, image and sound installation, the piece invites the audience on an associative and emotional journey through tags of memory, movement fragments and sounds, that enables everyone to find their individual access to the historical material.

I'd love to show you a video here.
