Manifesto Poetico in ARHNEM
At ARTEZ, December 2011 – March 2012
In Artez was the first time that we set up the elastic structure and we spent much time discovering the nature of the structure and its manipulation. Ones we got familiar with it, we pay full attention on the space of the structure by doing actions and reactions on different situations.
Reacting to the shifts done by the structure on the space we created atmospheres by a game of angles, points, planes and lines has a very real capacity of creating dramatic tension in a dramatic arena. For examples, how just by changing one of the angles of the elastic that it changes not only the space in the stage but also the world that we've created.
Playing with the tensions of push and pull and how having those tensions in the body made the work really specific and created dramatic conflict between characters.
