PREMIERE Co-production “NE†WORKS“ by Rodrigo Sobarzo
Rodrigo Sobarzo studied choreography at SNDO in Amsterdam, theatre at Universidad de Chile in Santiago and was a resident at the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht. In his work he develops a unique language between physical performance and visual arts. His creation “Ne†works” takes as departure point the demise of our classical notions of physical ecosystems, and the homelessness this new digital-arena brings. “Ne†works” is an experiential capsule where we visually reflect upon different states of matter and its natural cycles. During this particular work in progress on Working Title Situation #03, Rodrigo has attempted to choreograph flies with technological means such as UV-lights. Out of this composition a new born insect/technology will be conceived, proposing a combination of both material and conceptual elements: the natural and the virtual, the animate and the inanimate.
