Interactive Dance Concert / A performance Within a Performance
The performance DA CAPO was created and adapted for the venues of De Duif and the Perdu Theatre in Amsterdam.
With DA CAPO, Gabriela Zuarez envisioned creating a bricolage from dance documentation to live performance. The work would trigger the boundaries between the spaces of documentation, the performative and the presence of the performers. Together with the ensemble of musician Gerardo Agnese, filmmaker Celeste Franco, dancer Damian Rosenthal and scenarist Marnix Alex Carpentier Alting; she presents this unique self-reflexive theatrical work and adapts it to each venue. More.
DA CAPO is a colourful theatrical performance with the Tango at its centre. It is a one-hour journey back in time to the origins of the dancing body. A journey where dance, music, images and light merge into a dazzling whole. And in which a new performance merges within the performance with an overlapped video registration and documentation.
The performers take you on this journey from now to then and from old to new. In a shared, immersive setting, the expressive contrasts are portrayed: between nostalgia and desire, loneliness and togetherness, intimacy and distance. Those contrasts have played an important role for everyone in the recent pandemic, which makes this performance all the more worthwhile.
