On The New Art of Making Ruins: Dance piece.
On The New Art of Making Ruins is a dance piece inspired by a documentary by Florian Borchmeyer e Matthias Hentscheler, Havana – The New Art of Making Ruins. This documentary presents a singular way of living the ruins by its inhabitants. Havana has lived an economic downfall resultant of its political isolation, which is reflected in the degradation of its architectural heritage. Despite this, some of its inhabitants still occupy these buildings in multiple ways, revealing an enormous resilience. The melancholic narrative built around this life experience reveals an emotional and political dimension of the body in a time and space of memory that evokes a possible ‘ruin of the world’.
More than a metaphorical or imagetic representation of the ruin, the project On The New Art of Making ruins, explores the composition of movement and sound through the abstraction and translation of the different premises associated to a ruination and resilience movement – erosion, repetition, fragmentation, accumulation, recovery, destruction, reconstruction.
