LANGUAGE OF MEMORIES


with Cristina Castrillo (Switzerland)

1 – 3 Nov 2015
from 9am till 1pm

The fundamental inescapable element of Cristina Castillo’s theatrical work is “memory”; not only with a reference to what one remembers or thinks he remembers, but rather as that particular, often imperceptible, network of cues through which an emotion appears or a reaction directs movement. “Memory” is not perceived as a reproduction of “facts”, but as an uncharted personal geography, with which we manifest ourselves, we materialize, we portray and we transmit.

The networked performance will be followed by a live online-offline discussion about possible solutions to the situation.

Approaching 2016 Olypmpic Games in Rio de Janiero has drawn world attention to the issue of water pollution there, as many sports such as sailing, swimming and windsurfing will take place in Guanabara Bay. For local communities, this problem has existed for a long time and will persist beyond the Olympics; it badly affects their health and livelihoods as well as the wider environment.
