qué importa el abismo
solo dance theater
what did you do when you were injured? what legacy do you plan to leave behind when you leave?
‘qué importa el abismo’ raises questions for the public about the wounds one has suffered, the scars one has on one's body. these scars are ultimately the legacy we carry into the future.
directed by aïda colmenero dïaz and inspired by the poem by iosune de goñi, the work ‘qué importa el abismo’ questions the limits of the physical and emotional body, and how it relates to wounds and scars to build a present and a future
how do we face life from that abyss? how do we present ourselves to the world with our wounds? how do we move through life with the scars that our bodies accumulate?
