Constant Movement

The impromptu performance Constant Movement (2021) was staged on June 20, 2021, at one of the nicest locations in the city of Valencia, the recently built Parc Central. This is an urban space designed by landscape architect Kathryn Gustafson that reclaims a fairly large piece of land for the citizenry. In the context of the COVID-19 crisis, the purpose of this project was to find artistic ways to connect with the community that normally gathers at this site. Through silent physical theatre, I managed to interact with some of the families that come to the park in seek of leisure time. Children were particularly receptive to the performance, which was based on improvisation against the framework of a predefined repertoire of moves. The costume I wore is an original design by Alex Oraa, impeccably produced by the Dorina Cupcea workshop. The experience was documented by photographer Gabriela Lascarov. This performance follows up the inquiry that began with Constant Music in 2020.
