Daniel Navarro Lorenzo

Developing the idea I started at the CND (Compañia Nacional de Danza) and preparing the performance for the festival, Innovations Spring Edition on 1st May 2020 at The Studio. In a State controlled by power, money and fear, citizens believe they enjoy a freedom that they do not really possess. The way they move, cry, smile and wait does not belong to them anymore. Emotion does not exist, there is no place for it. Two people perform their show, twice a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Their movements are robotic, mechanical, there is nothing they can control because they control nothing: they have become automatons. The only thing that seems to be able to release them are the memories in which human emotion seems to be discovered through the traditional dance of previous generations that have already left.

Daniel will be holding a sharing of work in progress at 3.30pm on Friday 20 December - join us for the final sharing of 2019!
