Margherita Tisato.   A thousand times and never before: An improvisational offering of Butoh and vulnerability. By surrendering the maps of narratives and dramaturgy, “1000 times and never before” aims at offering a bare experience of butoh through improvisation, without the external construct of ideas and rational decisions.

Brenda Polo  (Colombia) is one of our featured international guests. Photo by Ernesto Monsalve.   Efecto Mariposa:   Death does not exist, only metamorphosis     Efecto Mariposa:  is a research-creation work, which explores the dynamics of the body and explores the re-existence, through body territory and memory in a post-war context in Colombia. Through the Performance the dancer investigates the metamorphosis in her own physical and collective resilience, manifesting the "crisis of the flesh" that refuses to die.  The butterfly is associated with travel between worlds in search of knowledge, crossing borders and with the own experiences of unconsciousness that enrich us. The butterfly represents the metamorphosis, a metaphoric transition that honors the memory of the spirits of the millions of Colombians killed in combat, that hope to be reborn in a perpetual exchange. It is the symbol of the total transformation of the human being, a country, a world. It represents immortality, freedom, courage, embodies rebirth and resurrection.
