VADO: solo about empty things
My mother says I talked to myself. His mother not.
The idea of a performance-concert about empty things arises from the fear of loneliness, weakness and its monotony, where movements and sounds are explored without identity. The research is based on photographed bodies, freezing bodies, faceless bodies, lonely bodies. Away from social relationships.
The repetition and the limit are constant bases in this work, where the body is influenced by the constraint of the empty space. Everything is built based on the courses of thought, on the simplicity of being and on the empty movement.
