Borrowed Spaces is an intimate critical look at the current condition where banks own everything we have. A trance of spaces narrates a personal reflection that values body, nature, and the interaction with other beings. Performer and choreographer Carlota Pradera says her last good bye to the spaces of a house called home for 10 years. Carlota stretches her body along the walls and floor of the couple’s room as if measuring and recollecting memories once contained. She carves her pathway through the inviting backyard ferns and vibrant green plants becoming accidentally pleasant dance partners. While other times, she presents herself more theatrically defined exuding a rebellious subtext of last sayings as sounds and whole body percussive rhythms radiate. Performer also investigates shifting the role of objectification by at times allowing the camera to be in control and others piercing through the lenses forcing a dynamic partnering exchange with unidentified viewers. In the end, Body and nature embrace as one with trustworthy strength as hand-made edifice stands alone left behind.

*Special thanks to Marissa Alma Nick for lending her HD camera in support of shooting Borrowed Spaces as well as to Carlos Ochoa for his committed edition and original sound composition and last but not least to Glexis Novoa for executing the camera.
