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 is a conceptual clown, magical cowboy, model-poet, untied narrator and curator of pleasure. As a maker and organizer within the fields of choreography and performing arts his work explores the relationship between different codes and advocates the complete dissolution between fiction and reality. He is also working on the idea of co-authorship between all the agents involved in a live aesthetic experience. Some of his recent works are «My Only Memory» (2018), «Tálamo» (2020), «Between you and me» (2020) with Amalia Fernández, «This is Not Normal» (2021) and «This Is still Not Normal» (2022) with Arantxa Martínez. Over the past two decades, Domínguez has curated various artistic programmes and festivals like In-Presentable (2003-2012), Living Room Festival (2011-2017) Picnic Sessions (2013-2015) among others.
