Los Materiales works on the relationship between the pedagogical and the performative. Facilitated by Lucas Condró, the relationship between movement, contemporary dance, physics and architecture is investigated, through practices around the possibilities of the body with objects such as ropes, fabrics, plastics, rubber, wood… Creating a space where we can witness the investigation / discovery process on the specific material of a group of dancers.
Physics has established that three elements are required for sound to exist: a body that vibrates, a physical support through which it can be transmitted, and a soundboard that amplifies these vibrations, allowing them to be perceived by the ear. Our sounding board is our body, our soul. For this we have to prepare our instrument, so that it sounds. And once it sounds, to find all its possibilities … and compose, and create. We will work with dynamics from the scenic tradition and contemporary psychology.
For the past ten years Lucas Condró has been researching the mechanics that set the body in motion. Looking to find a use that would enhance its own mechanics and access its maximum agility. In this development he began to think about what were the best conditions for the incorporation of the information resulting from the work. Defining a series of practices that thought about both the specific material and the ways in which that material was proposed, ended up in shaping the technique of Asymmetrical-Motion.
