This new work places the body in a position of priority, durability and power. Focusing on the possibilities of movement, Body Monologue ventures to imagine alternative spaces and means of activating the body. From how many aspects can this body be seen and in how many forms can it be regenerated? This kind of considerations are fuelling the kinesiological exploration of the human body’s physical limits and proposing an imaginary reading that may exceed them.
Inspired by the dynamic role of the monologue in theatre, as well as in real life, the work assigns the task of delivering the unobstructed narrative to the body, thus inviting the viewer to experience the possibility of communication that is generated in this way.
