World of Shit in Area 623

World Of Shit In Area 623

The South Performatic Group presents Shit worldunder the direction of Mariana Belloto, in the artistic space Area 623. According to the synopsis of the work, “the bodies of the dance challenge their own integrity, putting their forms at risk while building visible parts about the time of each wet or burning.” .

In this proposal, among the ice bars, different concepts can be seen. From a scene that dissolves and transforms through movement, to a social critique. From what is said, the burning of ice blocks on the skin is about what is tangible. In the room, the words echoed: “It burns, it wets, it hydrates, it hurts,” the performers shouted as they hugged pieces of frozen water.

According to Belloto, “the search requires specific training, maximum concentration and a deep creative process. We work with research that, through decantation, produces kinetic fields and dramatic constructions.

The images achieved in each painting are very aesthetic, they achieve the purpose of what they are trying to express and, at the same time, make them uncomfortable. That the works challenge or take us out of the comfort zone can be a unique quality. At this time, the audience is impressed and joins what happens on the stage. Isn’t the burning and redness of the bodies on display just artistic things?

When asked about body care, the choreographer emphasized that “this is an exercise that we do while researching. The contact, the amount of ice, the time and the methods of approach from the smallest to the largest. Always with special care, they become inhabitants of that world.

Many questions may arise from the work that are resolved in the course of the story. The performers immerse the audience in a parallel universe where they build their experiences and even a frozen castle. In the same context, a dancer enters statement in a pond that occupies the entire area. His feet were different from the scene, the floor imitated the movement of a melting lake and, as he crossed it, he balanced a piece of ice on his head.

Instead, the other performer suspends himself on a vertical bar with only his stomach and thus becomes part – or vice versa – of his element. Different metaphors are even used, such as painful but still embraced. “Unfreeze me when love lasts,” said an artist while his colleagues surrounded him with blocks so that he would not be forced.

The idea raises all standards when working with elements, sending methods with different meanings and well thought out. The materialization of concepts plays a role that keeps the viewer on the edge of the seat, even if it does not empathize with the bodies that keep the cold.
