CRA’P collaborations 2016

Thursday 9th of June at 20h 
Cultural Center La Marineta – Mollet del Vallès

CRA’P presents “Güera, a Play on Significance & Meaning” a performance by and with Kata Cots (Mexico)

From my perspective, the way that we relate to each other is derived from the meanings with which we clothe ourselves and encompass others. I ask myself what does the trained dancer’s body become for the spectator when her code of movement and context are fractured.

Starting from the nude female pose and its representation, Güera, in this case a nude that is clothed, intends to evoke the relationship between the one who “looks” and the subject and/or “object” of his/her desire or rejection.

The process of making Güera (which in Mexico in Spanish means a sexy white girl) is derived from movement identified with images and representations of the female body that transform it. The proposed structure is based on different sequences of action that unravel in public/privatized spaces such as malls, store windows, hair salons, etc.
