Project

Conceived from an aerobics class, with all its tics and commonplaces, in which three professional female performers, a DJ and several local non-professional "infiltrated" performers of various ages will participate and be the guide. This piece will be participative for the audience, who will take part and learn this kind of aerobics, which turns into a choreography and ends up being a party. It is the end of a party where the cult of the body and fitness ceases to matter, in order to give total freedom to our movement. 

UPPER is a site-specific that raises the need or belief that the body that practises various sports wants to look fit, toned and stretched and above all it seems that it needs this verticality of the gym to be seen, exhibited and admired.
