2- "To struggle" Diego Chamy (dance), Robin Hayward (music), Robin Hayward and Diego Chamy’s work is based on an improvisation of non-reaction, in which the apparent discourse between the two artists turns out to be two separated series of events, each taking place in solitary confinement. This impracticable communication acts as a starting point for a kind of drama, where the stage becomes a diagonal line in which different kinds of events are thrown: concentrations and dispersions of the space-time provided by a percussive and noise-based approach to tuba playing, twisted and out-of-confusion actions and inactions, fake movements, forced displacements and invisible gestures.
A palindrome has no exit. Once you enter, the only thing you will find is the entrance again and again. Maybe the exit is in the middle, in the form of a thin invisible line. But maybe we need alternative ways of escape. In any case, it’s a baroque room without exits carrying a strong dramatic impulse. It prevents the movements as translations in a given plane by reversing their direction in an unexpected moment. Its effects constitute a world of reflections populated by blurred subjects that already lost the ownership of their actions. Robin’s musical discourse and my movements-actions are two entrances that won’t communicate. There will be a thin line where an encounter can happen, but this possibility won’t dissolve the feeling of desperation for going out of the series and jump into a different plane. This jump can remain virtual or actual, and it will introduce or only suppose any chance of consumption. 41'.
