Sara Martin Hernández  – La Silla

About the piece

Dance piece of physical theater and contemporary dance in which the relationship between body and object is investigated, a distance which is becoming closer thanks to technological advances and virtuality, developing an attachment, almost dependent on that piece of furniture. Using the chair as a particular object that evolves, and has a direct impact on the body of its user. Observing carefully that there are more and more activities that can be done from that position. Also prolonging its time of use and modifying its designs and accessories for greater comfort. Its direct influence on the body and changes that it generates in our habits. Maintaining the original action of sitting to create a relationship between body and object that evolve simultaneously. Immersing ourselves in the search for balances and breaths within that attachment generated over time.
