Evaporation comes from a specialized noticing and managing of sensation, space and time, relating to our experience of ourselves and of the external environment. It is through this particular noticing, thinking and approaching movement, that we hope to expand a viewer’s own corporal awareness. Our bodies are vessels in the artistic games we are involved within. Through play, we create content. Our bodies are conduits of a greater force.
To have focused time, space and support during the period of residence in La Caldera Les Corts, it is a privilege for us. More specifically we will work to extend and develop this piece into a full length work, however the residency overall will facilitate a deeper expansion of our working, methodology and practice, allowing our art to mature and evolve.
