My Only Memory

Performance · Premiere by Juan Domínguez
In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2018

The perception of the changing of things feels fragmentary in light of the impossibility of permanently being aware of it. Transformations can only be perceived as a part of the past. As if we could only realize that we have arrived in the “here”, but not know how. Past versus present. As if there were transitions that culminate in a change. Insurmountable transitions that cannot be conceived or felt in the present. These are fluid moments of various duration that first gain relevance when looked back upon.

Fluid moments that gain relevance when seen in hindsight.

Juan Domínguez

Juan Domínguez is a maker and organizer within the fields of dance and performing arts. His work explores the relationship between different codes and advocates the complete dissolution between fiction and reality, using the former to produce the latter and vice versa. He is currently working on the construction of contexts that generate stronger and lasting relationships through continuity. He is also working on the idea of co-authorship between all the agents involved in a live aesthetic and poetical experience. Some of his recent works include “Shichimi Togarashi“ in collaboration with Amalia Fernádez (2006), “All good artists my age are dead“ (2007), “blue“ (2009), “Clean Room Pilot“ (2010), “Characters arriving“ in collaboration with Los Torreznos (2011), “Clean Room Season 1“ (2012), “Clean Room Season 2“ (2014), “El Triunfo de la Libertad“ in collaboration with La Ribot and Juan Loriente (2014), “Clean Room Season 3“ (2016), and “Between what is no longer and what is not yet“ (2016). In the last 14 years, he has curated different festivals and programs. He was Artistic Director of the festival In-Presentable/La Casa Encendida (2003-12), Co-Director of the Living room Festival (2010-13) and Co-Curator of the Picnic Sessions at CA2M-Madrid (2013-15).
