New(a)days is a woman on stage who goes through different states of empowerment and the relationship and symbiosis with nature. A set of scenes on communication, rituals, and transformation acts, to construct states and landscapes that range from pure contemplation to near-apocalyptic moments. A combination of presence and questioning about the possibilities of abstraction and poetry. Events that take place in crescendo ’to place the viewer within a journey where the perceptual experience of the body is evolving to open up an imaginative exchange.
Park Keito is the association based in Barcelona, that brings together the work of Kotomi Nishiwaki and Miquel Casaponsa. Their stage pieces and installations play with the body, movement and sound as the main source of creation, using objects and other elements to compose and choreograph. Performances researching and experimenting with different poetics, intentions and states creating artificial landscapes, fiction, organic soundscapes and kinetic movement.
