Eucalyptus Forest, Mexico.
This piece explores three premises in a video format: I. La mirada todavía puede ser el cuerpo (The gaze can still be the body), II. El trabajo todavía puede regresar a la tierra (Labor can still return to earth) and III. La quietud todavía puede insistir (Stillness can still insist). It proposes the construction of time and landscape by inserting nature in relation to the actions of the body and the image.
It was recorded at the Eucalyptus Forest, reflecting on migrations from large cities that began to occur during the pandemic and about unprotected natural spaces near urban areas. This work seeks to open a space for reflection on the body and what can be considered a body, as well as its forms of violence and resistance.
STILL was premiered by Danza UNAM within the programming Redes para la Danza, Alternativas para la Acción in the category of Experimental Choreographic Work.
