PERFORMANCE – Binary Cueca
Cueca is a popular Bolivian traditional-folkloric dance in which a couple wave a white handkerchief and swirl around each other in a naive flirtation, representing sexual engagement. Binary Cueca is a performance that takes this tradition as a starting point to understand the relation of the body within this playful dance, and inserts rhythmical digital information from what we witness today as copulation through modern media. Both interpretations of sexual engagement, from a bodily point of view, are often devoid of empowerment and are merely engaged with the representation of erotic outcome. Binary Cueca taps into the naive traditional dance as well as in the naive digital dance, making it an erotic dance devoid of eroticism. Ibelisse will be both performing and making live music.
Performance Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti exclusively on Thursday 27 December 17:15 & 20:00h at the Foyer.
During THIS Art Fair, two special performances will take place, carried out by contemporary makers, programmed by artists Merel Noorlander and Sevilay Maria van Dorst (stand 63). The performers – Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti and Denise Verschut – present new techniques and perspectives on Erotics, porn and feminism. Both are admired for their powerful performances, visionary concepts and endurance in movement.
Ibelisse works as a theatre maker, performer, musician, teacher and visual artist in various collaborations. Her versatile approach to different disciplines has allowed her to experiment in a wide range of pieces, exhibits and concerts. Her personal performances attempt to depart from a rather simple principle that would -with the influence of structure, coincidence and time- stand for a larger understanding that speaks to the imagination. Her research and working language reside on a line in which physicality, phenomena, image and sound are equally important.www.ibelisseguardiaferragutti.com
