El Carneval I & II
El Carneval is a choreographic piece in which we research the repetitive act of putting clothes on and off. In contrast to the Carneval, we drop costumes, masks and layers,on and off, on and off.
How is the flesh when it touches, squeezed by cloth, stretched by it?
What kind of space lies between clothing and skin?
How do clothes connect and separate us when we rip them off each other, expand, pull? Sculptures emerge between the bodies that transform continually, our relations, hold on, let go, and again.
