Program Black Box
Hidden concludes the trilogy — after Kokoro (2015) and iU an Mi (2017) — which reflects on identity. This last piece takes a look at those things that define us, but which, over time, have been covered under the veil of the unconscious. It reflects on the idea that our present blurs the past. On how life, which does not stop and which pushes us relentlessly, leaves a trail of memories along its way. And on how these memories pile up between the folds of the brain, as dust does under the furniture. And they remain in the shade, hidden under an artificial tulle, of dream, of subjective illusion. Because the past has passed, and the present distorts it.
The performance Hidden by the Lali Ayguadé Company is presented at the 28th Kalamata Dance Festival with the support of Acción Cultural Española (AC/E) through the Programme for the Internationalisation of Spanish Culture (PICE), in the framework of the Mobility grants, as well as the Embassy of Spain in Athens and the Cervantes Institute.
