CRA’P resident January to December 2024


Cruuu is a process; a self-discovery of a being in front of the public. This discovery will lead to different me-tamorphoses. Stories that surface, that are made and undone; fragments of old legends that appear and transform. A journey towards a primordial innocence, almost ancestral, and with a good dose of absurdity; from the smallest and sensitive to madness and emotional outburst.

The piece mixes the emotionality and defined behavior of the clown with a formal play with costumes, in-troducing choreographic moments with a certain abstraction and an open poetics typical of dance.

Following a constant in my artistic creation, I seek to create a piece of formal simplicity, that can connect with diverse audiences (of different ages and cultural backgrounds), but that at the same time opens an experimental poetics and is focused on an investigation into the body on scene. A subtle investigation into the presence in which I have been involved as an artist for more than twenty years.
