Two Identical Mirrored (WT)

Showing by Ixchel Mendoza Hernández

With the support of the Einstiegsförderung 2016 and Tanzfabrik Berlin Ixchel Mendoza Hernandez is presenting the first research of the project "Two Identical Mirrored". "Two Identical Mirrored" researches as a laboratory space, to play with the fine borders between perception, memory and imagination. Investigating how the audience is forced to make chains of associations and possible story configurations of a disjoint proposition, in an atemporal fictional “space”. The choreographic investigation of this piece comes as a cinematic editing process from all the elements being juxtaposed. All together it functions as a montage, working with the cinematographic and personal memory of the spectator.
