Tanz · Premiere
In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2018
The materiality of the body and the variety of conditions it can bear and generate are the central focus of the choreographic research of Lina Gómez and her collaborators. With a precious and unique dialogue between movement, music and light, »A Passo di Mulo« creates a vibrating landscape of earth, togetherness and persistence.
Today I wander with a fixed but flexible gaze, with my knees light, and my feet continuously sub- merged in the dust, in the mud, in the water, in the stone. I lose myself in the attempt to continue. I bear the vertical burden of my head, I move and plunge, plunge and move, always forward, as Doña Esperanza used to say.
