[From press release]
BARE BONES is an experimental dance performance that employs movement and a visual installation to analyze power dynamics among individuals and cultures. The work questions divisive lines of man-made borders that alienate families, lovers, friends, and political enemies. It examines the distance invading our cultures and social behaviors, creating a world in which touch is becoming an endangered sense and fear is becoming the predominant vehicle for communication. BARE BONES is a metaphoric labyrinth where the essence of movement reveals how humans are being reduced to moving machines covered with flesh.
CARLOTA PRADERA’s creative collaborators include special guest artist LAZARO GODOY -- a YoungArts Alumnus (First Prize in Choreography, 1996), Artistic Director JUAN CARLOS ZALDIVAR -- the award-winning Cuban filmmaker and video artist, and Lighting Designer ALEXEY TARAN. The performance features original live music by Sound Artists/Composers JURAJ KOJS and RAINER DAVIES.
