Núria Guiu, Hiroshima’s resident artist, was selected as an Aerowaves’ artist; Likes, was undoubtedly one of the most acclaimed shows of the European Festival. Created and premiered in the theatre in 2017/18, Likes has aroused the interest of festivals in both Europe and Asia. Halfway between a lecture performance and a dance solo, this piece is an anthropological approach to two widespread trends in social networking: cover dance and yoga videos. When the audience enters the theatre, they are confronted with a sort of conference on the subject of study: the likes as a commodity and as a status symbol. This dissertation, inspired by the artist’s own experience as a student of anthropology, gradually gives rise to a physical demonstration of the subject that has been broached. With astute intelligence, a sense of humour and an exquisitely trained body, Guiu is able to move from pop choreographies to the sacred mudras of yoga and build, through movement, a sharp image of our society and its quest for meaning. It will be accompanied by a dance and yoga workshop taught by the artist. A MUST of Hiroshima’s new season.
