This is an Argentine-Austrian coproduction of creations that fuse the languages of Contemporary Dance, Tango, and imaging and communication technologies from a gender perspective.
It links three pieces of work: “IN THE ROOM” premiered in 2021, “IN SHARED SPACES” in 2022, and “IN THE BODIES" which will be first performed in 2023. This trilogy arouse from a professional and personal bond of many years among three choreographers, two of them based in Argentina and the other one in Austria. Though with different professional experiences, they are artistically bonded by common interests: contemporary dance, tango, collective creation, age range and the gender perspective approach.
Esthetic pieces of work hybridized by the projected image and its dialog with the bodies present. They address corporeality, stereotypes, the iconic, and what becomes natural in the tango culture. The place assigned to women from the esthetic aspect according to the predominant beauty standards in tradition. A plot with its main focus on the body and its special relation with the virtual. A bandoneon, a cello and a piano as sound producing bodies played live by musicians /performers, who interact with the dancers and their images.
Rooms connecting live to reveal body territories, suspending shoulders, awaiting legs, arms that do not embrace. Three women who persist and sometimes succeed in maintaining glamour.
Melodies linking in cyberspace and opening a shared dance floor.
Where a system of web cameras connect two stages with live audiences separated geographically. One node in Austria, where a dancer and a cellist share a stage and another node in Argentina, featuring two dancers and a musician playing the bandoneon and the piano.
It fuses the celebration of the meeting of present bodies with those which approach through the cyber space. Focusing on the female aspect of the tango embrace, it emphasizes the subtleties of sensual traits while playing with the traditional icons in a fresh manner.
This work piece is in progress and will be premiered in 2023.
