Vernáculos

A guest choreography for the Compañia Nacional de Danza Contemporanea, Buenos Aires

The Company invited international choreographer ​Lisi Estaras​ to create a dance production. ​Vernáculos​ proposes to return to the core and reinvent history. A story that questions and renews our present.

A group of people redefines a collective identity. Through a reinvented folklore where empathy, group strength, the place of the individual, man’s relationship with nature, are some of the themes of this ‘vernacular’. Through instinctive physical language the work becomes an emotional collage that plays with the limits of the unknown and the search for the authentic.

Gabriel Chowjnik’s original soundtrack immerses us in an energetic and sensual universe where the music of the Italian composer and poet Giacinto Scelsi (1905-1988) stands out as a counterpoint to this heterogeneous and furious mass. These one-tone compositions embody the multiplicity of what it means to be somehow one.
