CUERPO ELÉCTRICO

SIGNS WE WERE

What keeps a body alive is the same energy that keeps mankind connected.  Cuerpo Eléctrico is a corporeal illustration of a body entangled, suspended, enrapted, supported, and enmeshed in a network of physically demarcated electricity - cords and light bulbs.  

Solo show made possible by support of Cirko de Mente, Mexico City.  Selected as convocatoria de opera prima May 2016.  

Running time: 25 minutes

An experiment of organic movement disecting the relationship between the constructs of humankind and the natural world through the techniques of circus, dance, performance, and the intervention of space. 

A collaboration with Mexico City based artist David Orozco

Running time: 55 minutes
