Ayelen ParolinArgentina / Belgium
A quintet between a pianist-composer and four dancers, Autóctonos II calls into question the place of the group, and of “belonging to a group”, in this society of endurance, indifference and productivity that we call our own. Both abstract and "mathematical” at first sight, the piece bases its writing on the physical tenacity and commitment of its performers. A power that is highly sensitive, held together by an ever-finer thread.
Allusion to the circle - supposed to bring (back) together - and affirmation of stability, of order and standardization: the starting points of the choreographic development. To thus enable the hairline fractures in the system to express their sweat, the human frailties of every person, and to feel the group's instinctive herding force, its warrior-like strength. Potentially just as much a force of exclusion as a force of resistance.
