THE MEETING POINT
'The Meeting Point' is a poetic and comical choreography, composed of gestures and everyday situations, where a man and a woman have a date in a public place to dance. The man is blind and the woman is clueless. An accordionist gives them the time, explores and improvises, accompanying this encounter, in search of the rhythms and musicalities that the bodies ask for.
We understand this work as a poem of surrealist brushstrokes in which the characters try to solve and dissolve the difficulties that are generated in an encounter, a gallant date between a couple. With imprudence and subtlety, they move in all possible directions to dismantle stereotypes and be able to meet.
The show is conceived to a blind and non blind audience, looking for games and new correspondences between visual information and textual and sound references.
“I introduced in my pictures elements with all the details that are seen in reality, and note immediately that these elements, represented thus, directly questioned their correspondence with the real world.” Magritte
