1/4 RESTLESS
Choreographer, audiovisual and musical edition.
Eduardo Zúñiga – Chilean in Alicante Spain.
Music L.V. Beethoven

The first of the 4 pieces that make up the work, is inspired by the night experience of the interpreter, of insomnia as a psychological and creative experience throughout the creation and editing process of this work. Collecting the corporal and mental consequences of the confinement. Restless, the homonym of the complete work, takes us on a journey through hidden places that awakens us more desire to scream, hug, run and watch, come out of the confinement egg. It is a journey into the interior of this being that we are all and that we are one at a time.

“The main inspiration comes from what it means to live in confinement, what we have to live in our homes with our time. Time in the sense of what the use of it means and how it varies depending on what we do. It feels faster or slower. “
Eduardo Zúñiga – May 2020

2/4 ORILLA
Direction and Choreography
Edgar Zendejas – Mexican in Montreal Canada.
Edition
Eduardo Zuniga
Music L.V. Beethoven & Sebastián Arias.
Musical Edition Esdras Hernández and Eduardo Zúñiga.

The inner world shines with its most unexpected voices before a feeling of loneliness. It deepens us to a direct connection between body and soul and makes us explode without any meaning, just for the fact of being and facing our own presence.

“This is the first time that there is a global unification of the artistic endeavor, it is a new challenge that is nurturing us so that we can find our new path.”
Edgar Zendejas – June 2020

3/4 OCASO
Esdras Hernández – Spanish in Santiago de Chile.
Choreography, musical composition (based on the “Symphony No. 9 in G minor, Op 125” and the “Piano Sonata No. 14”, by Ludwig Van Beethoven) and audiovisual editing.

When night falls almost everyone sleeps, but for some it is when they really wake up, the silence after sunset acts as a catalyst to listen to what you really have to say to yourself, the shame disappears, the masks are not necessary and that’s it. It only remains to surrender.

“The invitation was textual, for us to continue creating in quarantine. It is not easy to have a trial ten thousand kilometers away, but also with this current paradigm one is discovering new answers to new questions that perhaps if it were not for the pandemic, one would not question “.
Esdras Hernández – July 2020

4/4 MAURICIO

Sebastián Arias – Uruguayan in Montevideo Uruguay.
Musical composition (based on the “Symphony No. 9 in G minor, Op 125” and the “Piano Sonata No. 14”, by Ludwig Van Beethoven) and audiovisual edition by Esdras Hernández
Interpreter and camera: Mauricio Vera / Window Ballerina: Julia Bengtsson.

In this time where the majority have suffered confinement, we find ourselves alone or saturated with company, suffering from loneliness and various mood. Mauricio films himself showing his intimacy to somehow be closer, with this saturated rhythm he dreams of reopening and dancing to the applause that every day, at 7 pm, New York City offers to the health workers. In that dream is the stage.
