THE LIEDER, two acts of resistance: marching and singing.
A coreographic, installative and musical project by Javier Cuevas and Sara Serrano
created through open and collaborative practices with citizens and local artists related to
music and choral singing, who are called in for residencies and exhibition contexts. A sitespecific
and people-specific piece built over the concepts of resistance, anthem, heritage
A project based on the repercusions that the act of marching, hymns and collective
singing have on the body (understood as a physical body and as a political corpus). It is
built up from the quality of non-producing, the weirdness of human landscapes, the
participation and the questioning of the roles of artist vs. audience. All of it placed in two
space levels: outdoor (nature, the city, the street) and indoor (the theatre, the museum,
the institution: the re-presentational and production space). A physical and political transit
from the archaic-collective to the domesticated-artificial. From the past to the future across
bodies, words, songs and symbols.
