Paula used the residency in Montpellier to work on her production "El castillo hecho arte de concreto-cristal" .

Experience report by Paula Chavez:

In a castle disguised as a convent and then as a theatre, I camouflage myself in the French way or rediscover - digging up anger - the bastard blood that a French settler - without a name - bestowed on me. 

I am equally overwhelmed and rejoiced at the luxury, the facilities, and the amiability.
Glass box that contains the dancer in prison but also the promise of breaking and smashing the glass. 

The thousand and one possibilities of artistic research are reflected in the thousand pieces of broken glass; the castle-residence paradoxically embraces them all and without words gives them confidence.
The thousand pieces and multiple images, intuitions, routes surprisingly take all their own place and without precise coherence they end up belonging to a still but already powerful unnameable whole.

Thanks to the ICI for the trust, to Anne for the guide, to Thierry and Marco for the complicity, to Christian for the charisma and to the night ghosts for their company.
