No changing rooms, no objects, no text, no videos. Now I only need a body. -- Luis Garay
In a jet black theater, the audience strains to distinguish the form of virtuosic dancer Florencia Vecino slowly emerging from the darkness. Accompanied onstage by DJ Mauro Ap performing electronic music, she begins a breathtaking kinesthetic transformation in this physically and intellectually stirring solo work.
Buenos Aires–based Luis Garay, one of the most distinctive performance-makers of his generation, sees the body as linguistic material that invites investigation. Aside from its sheer rigor and intense physical demands, Maneries examines perceptions of time and form and exists somewhere between tribal ritual and performance. Note: Performance contains nudity.
