An abstract landscape takes shape, the border between the visible and the invisible becomes porous and lets other spaces emerge…
The performers Elma Riza & Mireia Aragones, and the musician Eric Wong work with the idea to create a particular space-time, inviting the spectator to sharpen his perception. Each element, sound, graphic, body participates in this amplification of the senses. “Story of Shapes – extended Blue” oscillates between an abstract language and sketches of fictions. The bodies explore the possibilities of a minimal universe, made of lines and sounds. And this exploration is like a constant research of the right composition, of the presence of the bodies in the moment in echo to the environment which surrounds them. A plurality of truths of the perception of a space and its evolution.
“Story of Shapes – Extended Blue” is an instant composition, we focus on the process and for that we understand performance as a practice. It is a never ending process, each performance is new but at the same time is a continuation of the previous one.” Elma Riza
“The blue is what solicits from me a certain way of looking, it is what can be felt by a specific movement of my gaze. It is a certain field or a certain atmosphere offered to the power of my eyes and my whole body. “(Phenomenology of the perception, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, 1945)
