Aziz Amri – Tickling My Patience
A one-hour performance is presented using a stitched elastic red fabric copying the figure of an hourglass. Wearing the fabric all over the body, the performer slowly and accumulatively applies pressures onto the fabric by twisting and stretching it. The action forms posses that visualize the curves and shapes of the body. The performer will be blindfolded. The body struggles in dance-like movements, interacts with an hourglass by his side while accompanied by a playlist of ASMR soundscape.
Taking its title from an exhibition of paintings shown in 2008, in which it was said that “the artist was less concerned with the gross materiality of oil paint but its theatrical ability to invoke intuitive gesture, rapid drama and infinitely subtle transitional states.”* I used scrapers and other tools to bid paint to compose the painting. Here I use the medium of the body to explore similar ideas. * Ross Moore

Oh, don’t even worry about it.

__ X I B A L B A Y __ “Superterrestrial – Tierra Adentro“ Experimental and Contemporary Dance Performance
Thinkers of life.
Reality needs our perceptions alive and active.
Everything is an integral act and nothing is isolated from the flow of life.
Every act has an integral relationship with the cosmic forces, natural manifestations, and telluric energy.
The miracle of how to be born, is what universal consciousness means.
We should not forget that it ever happened as it will certainly return.
It’s time to awaken the knowledge of our inner selves.
