Historia/Container

Giudicelli & Mandafounis

Workshop at Cie Gira Dança Natal Brazil

The accomplices are swept up in a real-time dramaturgical process that becomes the container of bodies and various stories. In this work each artist carries and defends the acts of the other as if they were his own. Each dancer is a witness to the other and accompanies every move, through all possible risks. The individual reactions emerge from the proliferation of urgency. They become catalysts for one another, acting in resonance. As a witness, the audience contains the story.
