Description

Starting from a complex and agitated post-pandemic context, Manuel Roque formulates a series of fundamental questions:
How can we start moving again after a period of inertia? How to move? To what end? To say what? The notions of uncertainty, wandering and fumbling quickly asserted themselves.
How does the body organize itself in a permanent situation of imbalance in order to renew momentum?
This notion of imbalance on a physical level, through the writing of a choreographic score where the absence of perfect verticality predominates, makes the body evolve in a dimension that challenges with the notion of directionality.
To translate this notion of directionality, Manuel Roque draws on the use of repetitive patterns and morphing that previously guided him in bang bang and Sierranevada. These repeated patterns and incremental variations illustrate the idea of a journey that the body traverses and writes in the moment: from a point of departure, interspersed with stages, successive transformations and potential moments of grace, up to the point of arrival.
