The Other Body or/and Lights in Lichtkleid

The project has provided a research base from which I could question and define my own role as a performer and creator, and it centres on the relation established between exhibitionism and voyeurism within a perfomance space.
Inspired by people and events such as: Vanessa Beecroft, Peter Berlin, Barbarella, ManRoulette, Yves Klein and Giorgio Agamben, among others, I invite you into a space where the direction of the gaze is of primary importance.

“Quim has created a piece in which the roles of spectator and performer become visible and relevant, where the layers of personality and body are revealed one by one, where we become aware of the cruelty in our gaze ….”

El Otro Cuerpo y/o Luces en Lichtkleid.

Una voz que perturba y que provoca. Un diálogo entre voz y cuerpo que convierte toda provocación en una acción introspectiva. La aparente frivolidad inicial va dando paso a las seductoras capas que componen la pieza, estratos invisibles que acaban revelando y desnudando al intérprete y al público a su vez. Desde el inicio, el espectador es invitado a participar de este thriller que indaga sobre la esencia del espectáculo.

“Un trabajo donde los roles del espectador y el intérprete se hacen visibles y relevantes, donde no dejamos de percibir el striptease de las capas personales y carnales, donde hay una conciencia constante de la crueldad a través de la mirada” Espectador anónimo

APUNTS SOBRE EL MEU DIARI DE SHOWING GODIVA:


Report for Forsøgsstationen after the month period at their space. Click here for the full report

How much the watchers can be aware of their own role and fascinations? How to bring inputs to
the audience in order that they constantly create a performative space? How to find a movement
that is constantly inviting to be watch? Is it possible, as a maker and performer, to constantly be
able to control the situation?”

The first I have done when I got in the studio, is to get into ManRoulette ( a chat roulette for “gay” man) and
be around for a while. ( For those who does not know, Chatroulette and Manroulette are websites where you
will find random people with their cam and, perhaps, you will chat with one of those. When you enter the
website, you activate your own cam and, after that, you will see a random person in the screen above. If you
are interested in that person you can chat or do stuff with the cam. If you are not, you click NEXT and
another random person will appear. You can do this action, as much as you want.) I have thought that lots
of the guys that goes there it is because, in fact, they are in love for their own cocks! It becomes some kind
of self masturbation, but at the same time they really need to know that they are being watch by somebody
that looks appealing to them. I connect this kind of approach with so many choreographers and dancers I
know!
….

Even though, I am not constantly producing material, for sure everything I do is an answer to the work
environment I have created in this room. I can sense the resonance of everything I do during the process.
So far, nothing is irrelevant, because everything creates consequences.
