CRA’P resident April – May 2011


I think that for deaf people, in some cases, watching dance might be an experience very close to the one listeners have by listening music. I present you the abstraction of a genesis. A naive scenic score, calm and minimalist, where the magic movement of a light body becomes human. A very elaborated textile construction reflects beams of light in the darkness. Animated from inside with a conitious movement, the volumen will constanlty change of form and colors suggesting different images to the view of each spectator. Music, movement, light and textile plasticity are integrated to provide to deaf people a visual perception of the sound. The body is designed as a transmitter of sound and thought takes the role of a sound “collage”, finding a visual music.

Txell Janot (concept, performer and textile construction) studies dance, circus techniques and plastic arts at independent centers in Barcelona. In her creations, dance and costume borns from the same desire of expresión. Was co-director of Lazzard danza-circo, in Tenerife. Actress at La Fura dels Baus.
