HOOR MALAS & MAYAR ALEXAN + RAUL HUAMAN

Information on the activity

October 2, 2021 to October 5, 2021

Hoor Malas & Mayar Alexan | Trois secondes
Go on a journey through the narrow and intimate corridors of Hoor’s mind, the world of her dreams. Dreams have become the only private and secret place left for human beings. There, (self-)consciousness closes its eyes, making way for repressed desires, old memories, and daily details to intertwine and create their own magical scenarios and cinematic sequences every night.

Raul Huaman | Cellule
After a brush with death and two years of rehabilitation to be able to walk again, life offers Raul a second chance. During the month when he is bedridden in the hospital, he develops an interest in cells: how do they change during trauma and how does the body undergo this transformation? In this duo that mixes Butoh and contemporary dance, each performer represents a cell of the same body. Raul digs into the flesh until he reaches fear, rage, madness. From this vulnerability emerges a body filled with contractions, spasms, and release. In this cycle, death is merely rebirth.
