AGRESIÓN Y DIGNIDAD

Remore performance showed on virtual platforms

EN

We have taken some tools of virtuality, in collaboration with other colleagues, to build a space of interrelation between creators and people. A digital place that dispenses with the physical space and, without replacing it, demands other forms of coexistence, of creation and therefore of construction of an artistic discourse. Forms and techniques that must escape from the anxiety to imitate cinematography, audiovisual art, or theatrical language.
theatrical language. Discourses that recover, at a distance, the performance in real time, the meeting of people and the exchange of ideas.

In Agresión y Dignidad we do not look for an anecdotal fiction but we try to build an artistic discourse with the digital tools we have, but from the scenic thought. We seek the concatenation of events, the interweaving of bodily, sonorous, visual and We are looking for the concatenation of events, the interweaving of body, sound, visual and literary signs, the opinions of people, of other artists, sometimes direct, sometimes metaphorical, sometimes taken out of context to put them face to face.

This project is not limited to the presentation of the piece, it is a basis for the exchange of ideas. After the presentation, a conversation with the spectators takes place through a zoom-in where we count on social agents not belonging to the performing arts. 
In previous performances we had the participation of teachers and students from the National School of Anthropology and History. On this occasion the guests, if selected, would be members of the civil organization La Poderosa from Argentina. We are aware that in the search for the common good it is necessary to go beyond the frontiers of our guilds and link the arts with other fields of knowledge and social action.

Hemos tomado algunas herramientas de la virtualidad, en colaboración con otros tantos colegas, para construir un espacio de interrelación entre creadores y personas. Un lugar digital que prescinde del espacio físico y, sin sustituirlo, exige otras formas de convivencia, de creación y por lo tanto de construcción de un discurso artístico. Formas y técnicas que deben escapar de la ansiedad por imitar a la cinematografía, al arte audiovisual, o al lenguaje teatral presencial. Discursos que recuperen, a la distancia, el performance en tiempo real, la reunión de personas y el intercambio de ideas.

En Agresión y Dignidad no buscamos una ficción anecdótica sino que ensayamos la manera de construir un discurso artístico con las herramientas digitales que disponemos, pero desde el pensamiento escénico. Buscamos la concatenación de eventos, el entramado de signos corporales, sonoros, visuales y literarios opiniones encontradas de personas, de otros artistas, a veces directas a veces metafóricas, a veces sacadas de contexto para ponerlas frente a frente.

Este proyecto no se limita a la presentación de la pieza, esta es una base para el intercambio de ideas. Después de la presentación se realiza una conversación con los espectadores a través de zoom donde contamos con agentes sociales no pertenecientes a las artes escénicas. En funciones
anteriores tuvimos la participación de docentes y estudiantes de la Escuela Nacional de Antropología e Historia. En esta ocasión los invitados, en caso de resultar seleccionados, serían integrantes de la organización civil La Poderosa de Argentina. Somos conscientes que en la búsqueda del bien común es necesario traspasar las fronteras gremiales y vincular las artes con otros campos del conocimiento y la acción social.

Abbiamo preso alcuni degli strumenti della virtualità, in collaborazione con altri colleghi, per costruire uno spazio di interrelazione tra creatori e persone. Un luogo digitale che fa a meno dello spazio fisico e, senza sostituirlo, richiede altre forme di convivenza, di creazione e quindi di costruzione di un discorso artistico. Forme e tecniche che devono sfuggire all’ansia di imitare la cinematografia, l’arte audiovisiva o il linguaggio teatrale.
arte audiovisiva o linguaggio teatrale. Discorsi che recuperano, a distanza, lo spettacolo in tempo reale, l’incontro tra persone e lo scambio di idee.

In Agresión y Dignidad non cerchiamo una narrativa aneddotica, ma piuttosto cerchiamo di costruire un discorso artistico con gli strumenti digitali a nostra disposizione, ma dal punto di vista del pensiero scenico. Cerchiamo la concatenazione degli eventi, l’intreccio dei segni
Cerchiamo la concatenazione di eventi, l’intreccio di segni corporei, sonori, visivi e letterari, le opinioni contrastanti di persone, di altri artisti, a volte dirette, a volte metaforiche, a volte estrapolate dal contesto per metterle a confronto.

Questo progetto non si limita alla presentazione del pezzo, ma è una base per lo scambio di idee. Dopo lo spettacolo c’è una conversazione con gli spettatori attraverso uno zoom in cui sono presenti agenti sociali esterni alle arti performative. In precedenza
Nelle precedenti rappresentazioni hanno partecipato insegnanti e studenti della Escuela Nacional de Antropología e Historia (Scuola Nazionale di Antropologia e Storia). In questa occasione gli ospiti, se selezionati, saranno i membri dell’organizzazione civile argentina La Poderosa. Siamo consapevoli che nella ricerca del bene comune è necessario superare le frontiere delle corporazioni e collegare le arti con altri campi della conoscenza e dell’azione sociale.
