This piece takes on the concept of the 'present' through the senses and explores the relationship of movement and matter with stimuli as avenues of expression.


“Antonio Ruz moves on to an introspective reflection with PRESENTE, for which he tackles the slippery notion of the present, which implies delving into time and impulses, the past and the future, the ephemeral and volatile nature of the now, and what he himself defines as the gift that each moment implies. And he does so without failing to take into account the uncertainty, anxiety and vertigo that are the signs of these extremely fast times in which we live. “An altering piece in which the five dancers build their own performance space while choreographies and images unfold of a poetry that moves between chaos and beauty, between that which is ephemeral and eternal.”
