Performing Arts


— María Salgado and Fran MM Cabeza de Vaca

Galeria Zé dos Bois

The piece will take place at the Aquário, being complying with the rules of social distancing provided by the DGS. The capacity is limited and the use of mask is mandatory.

Negro (Negro Live set), Rossa (RSRJ RJRS) and Ruido (Before it disappears from the world, we scribe it) are three pieces that explore moments of subjective and collective disobedience in a different way. As main axis, they share the escape from the discursive narrative, sustained by an aesthetic materiality of audio and text, in the sound and sense associated to it. The first of the pieces, NEGRO, tells us about desire as a driving force from poems that are presented in sophisticated language, excerpts from a political manifesto in the form of poems, video clips and extreme lyrical loops. The Second, takes to the extreme the binary classifications of gender and identity to dissolve them and lead to delirium through combinatorial (in the literary style of Gertrude Stein or musical composition of Steve Reich); and the Third takes as a starting point an old story about a gigantic storm (whose epicenter took place between Galicia and Portugal) to, in a slip of the initial meaning of some chosen words and their sound, to convert into a new story about the changes in the world that the year of the great revolts of 2011 made us glimpse. Regardless of the pre-recorded senses and the homogenized tones of the order speeches, we will witness an experience of listening by opening passage in the body. Desire + Dissolution + Change > an imagination.

María Salgado (1984) and Fran MM Cabeza de Vaca (1976) have been working together in Madrid since 2012. Their joint work explores the audiotexture in the cross between language, sound, music, poetry and performance. The three pieces they present in their national première at Zé Dos Bois are excerpts from three of their scenic works: Hacía un noido, Jinete Último Reino Frag. 3 and Jinete Último Reino Frag. 2; presented in contexts as different as the Museo Reina Sofía, Espacio Naranjo, MACBA, CDN Teatro Valle Inclán, 16 Beaver, Moby Dick or el Mercat de les Flors.
