55 minute piece for 4 dancers 

Choreography: Seth Buckley & Carlos González
Dancers: Paula Montoya Lozano, Sybila Gutiérrez Poveda, Cristina Reolid Gómez & Seth Buckley

Light Designer: Álvaro Estrada

HIIT is a piece inspired by the cardiovascular training method that consists of repeating, alternating periods of high intensity anaerobic exercise and less intense recovery periods for a defined number of sets. HIIT explores the speed limits and intermediate ranges of the moving body, captivating the spectator with its frenetic rythm and continous change of fantasy, where each individual experiences a very intense physical and emotional journey. Precision, surrender, tension, vulnerability and exhaustion.

 

ONÍRICO

PERSONA

60 minute piece for 4 dancers

Choreography: Seth Buckley & Carlos González
Dancers: Shannon Leypoldt, Meng Ting Liu, Seth Buckley & Carlos González

Persona deals with topics of gender roles, sexuality and identity. Each individual tells their own story while collectively challenging and struggling with the strict social constructs of our society. Art is not always a means to escape reality or to simply tell a story. ‘Persona’ offers a mirror that invokes self reflection by confronting the viewers with societal challenges through the experiences of the performers, while posing questions about self and outward perceptions, and the idea of “role playing”.

The Glass Cabinet confronts you with one choice, to keep looking or to turn a blind eye?

Energy is carried through all kind of waves. The energy of some waves can be directly perceived with our senses. We are surrounded by energy that vibrates at different frequencies. We ourselves are energy. Love forces vibrate at the highest frequency and is the highest form of energy. 

 

Love In Waves is a physically charged piece that looks into energy and its capacity to expand, affect and exchange between others. The piece plays with the idea of altering energy and invites the audience to experience it in their own bodies.
