Artist Karla Arevalo is joining this residency to work on her performance – Lei-lá. A work in progress showing of the performance will take place on 19th May kl. 20.00
About the performance
Lei-LÀ is a performance that explores walking as a symbol of human resistance. Through simple and everyday actions, a human being and 20 meters of fabric tell us the adventure of a woman who dreams of freely exploring a world without borders. The artist on stage uses the circus technique of aerial silks to tell the story of a journey, with poetic images, movement and physical metaphors. Fantasy and reality blend in the utopian world of Lei-LÀ. In this world, the circus technique constitutes a ceremony, in which fabrics and the body are transformed, magnified and unified.
