WOWOWOW is a collaboration with choreographer Quim Bigas (ES), an investigation within and around collectivity, in close relation between performers and audience.
WOWOWOW is space for reflection upon (the) collective. A place where a set of images appears and disappears. A collection of actions and ephemeral statements. A radical mode of being in a structure through the lenses of being present and in relation, always. You. We. Us.
WOWOWOW suggests a visualization of “our” movement as a mode to unfold an assemblage, an ecology of things, in which certain aspects of the self comes at stake as a mode to trigger different layers of relations that takes place in the moments we talk about “us”. A big, yet tiny – us.
