Discussion about the work of Danza Comun
Start Date: 5/10/2021Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 5/10/2021
Event Description:
Dancers with Danza Común, Angelica Angulo and Leo Giron, will join DNC 235 class to speak about the making of the piece, "Campo Muerto" (2007) by Bellaluz Gutiérrez, Zoitsa Noriega and Sofía Mejía. In 2017, Bellaluz Gutiérrez re-made her part of the choreography and expanded it as a celebration of the 25 years anniversary of Danza Común. This version of "Campo Muerto" is 44-minute group dance that plays with the impact of peoples forcefully dislocated from their homes and villages, forced to flee to urban sprawl of the big cities of Colombia. "Campo Muerto" is a poetic, piece. The choreography is a combination of pedestrian movement and tableaux and that go from quiet to chaotic, portraying the before and after moments of this kind of brutal force. The dancers arrange pedestrian movement through simple objects that take on associations related to war torn areas of the world.
