Residencia del 13 de mayo al 22 de noviembre

Selected through the National Live Arts Call, the national artist José Miguel Candela arrives to investigate around contemporary dance and electroacoustic music.

“TACIT, a Practice as Research of choreomusical networks at the thresholds of silence and/or immobility”, is a Practice as Research  project that seeks to study situations that involve contemporary dance and electroacoustic music, in which concomitant or alternative choreomusical networks, located at thresholds of  silent and stillness, are manifested. For its realization, music and dance will be taken as initial disciplinary areas of work, that is to say, those arts that base their practices precisely on sound and movement. Thus, it is proposed to direct research from these disciplinary frameworks to places of new knowledge, and therefore to territories of uncertainty, risk and possible ruptures.

From a methodological point of view, this research will be carried out in and through the Practice as Research methodological framework, therefore, it will be the artistic practice itself that will organize and reveal this new knowledge, through performative action. The originality of this research is based on its focus on choreomusical relationships on the thresholds of sound and silence, and therefore, on the disciplinary limits of both music and dance, and the potential new ways of understanding these limits.
