“Penumbra is a solo composition that explores the crystallization of images in the realm of pure light and shadow. In it, one asks what to build from the impossibility of observing and listening to the body in its entirety as an external element and in what way it is possible work on the potential of light in our perception of the world.
In a process of choreographic work, sound design and light design without a hierarchical relationship, light operates as a motto for figurative sequences, inscribing the movement of the body in a perennial relationship with the shadow, which proposes a joint poetics of what is not properly defined. or closed by nature, it just appears or projects between light and shadow: Penumbra.”
