INTERNATIONALES FESTIVAL FÜR ZEITGENÖSSISCHEN TANZ: INTO THE FIELDS THEATER IM BALLSAAL – ANTIPODAS – ENTOMO – LONGFADE – ENTOMO EA & AE | SPAIN – Here: LONGFADE VIDEO

 LONGFADE – EXTRAORDINARY SOLO BY Elías Aguirre – FOR US ONE OF THE PERFORMANCE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE FESTIVAL!

 

 

From the eager for life protozoon to the lonely cyborg. The three-piece night “Entomo Y Otros” at Bonn’s “Into the Fields” festival.

“…Thus, the audience slides during a light-wise cleverly arranged transition from Esteban’s organic creeping-fluttering creature of fight to Aguírre’s piece about a sort of biotechnological cyborg. “Longfade” is the name of his solo, for which he took inspiration from the Dutch-Portuguese philosopher Baruch de Spinoza, whose monism can also be understood as an attack towards freedom of will. Thus, Aguírre presents a creature suffering through the loss of self-determination. Being a respectable “suit”, Aguírre acts as if this was everyday business, but already the first movement shows: The human being is more of a robot than a sovereign – and obviously a robot with fundamental malfunctions.

 

 

Aguírre’s body constantly twitches, turns and judders, all the time something is hanging lopsided, a limb escapes into the wrong direction. The mechanics are out of control – and Aguírre a brilliantly trained street dancer for popping, locking and slide-moves styles. This is strongly comical, in keeping with the slapstick principle: ‘When one end is finally under control, there is chaos at the other one’. But like Esteban, Aguírre also seeks philosophical severity through entertaining virtuosity, narrated by contemporary emotions of existence like powerlessness and being externally controlled – and once in a while, one even thinks that he is sketching the psychological portrait of a person suffering from trendy children’s symptom ADHD….”
