Línea y Contorno de Un Abismo

A performance around the literary universe of the Ecuadorian writer Pablo PalaciO (1906-1946)

A production of FIALV, Festival Internacional de Artes Vivas Loja, Ministerio de Cultura y Patrimonia del Ecuador, in colaboration with CND Compañía Nacional de Danza del Ecuador.

Premier at FIAVL 2018, Teatro Bemjamin Carrión de Loja, November 16th 2018.

An intimate reading of a particular scripture: the work of Pablo Palacio. The ecuatorian author exalts the human and attempts against the established;
It suggests that reality could be another.
Perseveres to describe the collective as empowerment of humanity, both in the ability to transform and to destroy. Understands human miseries in incontinent but particular situations. His characters live on the edge of an abyss, neither heroic nor romantic, exalting the domestic and the wild, between desire and action. Palace, a man of multiple edges, does not contemplate the duality from the simple oneness of the things,
it values it from a chaotic communion.
In this staging, the dancers lend their soul and voice to write a visual poetry oniric and symbolic, as true and crude as the work of Palacio. Before this encounter between page and subject I surrender to the immensity of his work, of its senses, of its perfect disorder “.
