Dream is a dreamer

Residencia del 22 de abril al 3 de mayo

As a Cooperation Agreement between NAVE and Municipal Theatre of Rivoli,  NAVE welcomes the portuguese artist Catarina Miranda who will work in a creative and technical residency based on the human body and its position in the physical world. 

The creative work Dream is a Dreamer is a spatial evocation exercise for stage where a fictional topography is activated, establishing a collective imaginary through means of word and gesture.

The construction of the sensitive experience of the body has as a starting point the exercise of contemplation. An empty space is intercepted by an hypnagogic protocol where a trigger point, the performer, morphs within as a multiple entity.

Through the manipulation of an object, affects are built and scenic time is defined, establishing a relation between the monstrous and the human dimensions of a body-flesh-skin.

 This scenic time-zone is driven by speculations on reality.
