Lali Ayguadé Company – Hidden

About the piece

“Hidden” concludes the trilogy composed by Kokoro (2015) and iU an Mi (2017), which reflects on identity. This last piece takes a look at those things that define us, but that over time have been covered under the veil of the unconscious. It reflects on the idea that our present blurs the past. On how life, which does not stop and pushes us relentlessly, leaves a trail of memories along its path. And how these memories pile up between the folds of the brain, like dust under furniture. And they remain in the shadow, hidden under an artificial tulle, of dream, of subjective illusion. Because the past is past, and the present distorts it.

But one day a man stops to look back. And he returns using the same path he took, following his trail. Groping. He returns to his childhood home determined to uncover his past. To put light on it. To evoke it. To remove the dust, or remove its intricacies. A journey between the ghosts and treasures of his childhood. Between his desires and his weaknesses. Between innocence and fear. He unwraps the past, much like a child unwraps candy. Just as an adult opens a wound. To get to know himself. To find his identity. To reconstruct himself.
