The body precedes me
The door opens and the tiger leaps
Virginia Woolf, The Waves
Entrusted to the energetic impetus and visionary horizon of young presences and corporeality, ONDE takes shape through a performative, choreographic and musical practice that opens to the present of bodies stretched and floating between ecstasies, animal darts and curves toward evanescence.
Rhythm punctuates individual gaits and choral actions, highlighting the unanimous persistence to the buoyancy and momentum of emergence. We tune to sonic motion, collective geometries and cosmic trails, repurposing turns and inclinations similar to waves of bodies, in their dizzying, polyphonic present.
Marking, beating, stuttering, tending, resigning, becoming slight but also impetuous, bold as the moth that goes toward the light even though it may burn it.
From The Waves, Virginia Woolf’s play-poem, ONDE incorporates the continuous current of images and the need to regenerate in rhythm.
