What does one do when hate sets in?
What images to use to convey the overwhelming feeling?
Everything can change into aversion and change back into the very opposite of that: the contractions and contradictions of the body’s muscles, the meaning of any symbol, and its opposite, not to mention misunderstandings, and non-acceptance.
And yet hate demands affirmation, the need to belong, and the instinctual necessity of letting go of its own footprint. If we capable of hatred, we are therefore connected with that Other who’s become the object of out hate.
In the present creation by Tenerife-born choreographer Daniel Abreu, three women explore that primeval power of Hate and interact with each other through the destructive impulse that carries the central meaning of using the Other as objects. Hate takes shape through an ensemble of tableaux that explore its original meaning, and convey its essence, beyond any moral judgement.
Setting out from misunderstanding, an insane form of Love, explored in all its possible discordant shapes, from the moment it is born, and grows with fear and desires, and changes shape, until the final impulse through dance, and all in an organic and flowing physical and emotional back and forths.
