This choreographic solo began as a dialogue between Blanca Noguerol and Pau Aran. A dialogue about identity and the exploration of their origins. Their shared path from Barcelona to Wuppertal. The circumstances inside and outside Germany. They have both trodden a similar path that coincidentally brought them together in the spring of 2005. Since then a friendship was forged from their shared roots, as they both tried to build foundations in a new place far away from home.
Inspired by the reminiscences of ‘Brocken’, this piece aims to observe the concepts of power, femininity and freedom in a new prism. To do that, we need to move forward together unknowingly, without first remembering what happened before. The paradigm that emerges suggests replacing the political with the poetic. At some point in the process texts from Federico García Lorca’s ‘Mariana Pineda’ appeared.
