DON´T MAKE IT A PLAY
Don’t Make it A play O Como Esto es un Trabajo serio
As a story or discourse that is composed of the absence, the purpose is none other than to propose a simulacrum, a fire that is stoked from the non-presence. There, in a non-place. The inertia of Dorothy’s journey to the country of Oz is the palpitation of an unbalanced, fragile, romance-speaking border machine, which in the inertia of the tornado declares itself the enemy of plastic that dies in the spectacle of self-consumption.
“When I see you act, you make me feel that life is really very hard, you make art seem like a real job, a serious job”.
For the sake of repetition, the scene is composed in fractal vignettes where art and artist, dependent reflections of each other, transit and confront each other according to the merciless direction of a faceless silent audience -inter face-. Three performers draw in the intermediality and inter-discipline, a discourse that pretends the foolishness of the nonconformist: this is a serious work. And they emphasize it. They transmit it. They articulate it.
It is born in the depths of the creator’s urgency. From the virtual of his capital situation. Here are three horizons that we would swear dissonant: the virtual, the capital, and the artistic. The multiplicity of voices that Elena conjures is because art, once exposed and stripped of its monastic confinement, invokes and ritualizes the human; the piece is a cartography of memory, of its emptiness. Let us open up then, of what unites what the meridians separate, it is a map that in pieces reveals a human statement that makes use of its technological virtue as a bridge and registers, as a channel and to receive it.
The piece does not pretend anything else but to present the absence, the artist, and the art.
