DANCE – PREMIERE – 50′- Text

Ji Gou: Prelude and fugue in A Minor is a landscape and a presence.
A journey of transformation.
A fugue.
It is duality, two poles living together.
It is light, solitude and success.
It is abandonment and permanence.
Ji Gou is about will power, one’s own gaze, identity and limits.

“You will never be first of all but neither will you be the last…Perhaps you will only enjoy the ecstasy of a moth in the moment before it burns in the flame.”
Theory of Ambition, Hérault de Séchelles.

In 2016 Neus Villà, accompanied by the dancer and video artist Leo Castro, wants to turn the creative process for De acelgas y aceras (Of Plants and Pavements) into a production to be seen under the definitive title of Ji Gou: Prelude and fugue in A Minor.

This project was born out of a desire to work with the physically and musicality, in an ephemeral and luminous space, and at writing a dramaturgy from the approach of physical language and the relationship with objects, with the intention to persevere in the image constructed.
