El acto inmóvil [The motionless act]

A new configuration, a new device that emerges from the reading of the material, from that process of understanding that conversation or dance. The frailty of the bodies is shown through the setting, in order to make visible a possible state in an intimidating act. The interruption is a time suspension of the execution of a process, where we may find endless variables in their proximate state. This somehow provokes an intimidating act, where a system of devices configured as simulacra that become a body itself, to describe moments that enable the liminal theatricality. These mechanisms result in a multiplicity of gestures that question us from some fluctuations that manifest as a restored quotation that happens in a real event.
