Enriching their work from a constant curiosity and a deep interest for the sensitivity of the detail, the sound, and the textual, BQ-MR looks at the energy living behind the gestures and its potential for expressing thoughts. In “TRIPTICO”, the three convergent trajectories encounter each other to deeply look at the human condition from this perspective. “TRIPTICO” means “folded three times“, and refers to the format of an artwork composed of three panels separated – or joined – by hinges. Inspired by this image, we envision relationships between these “hinges” in an attempt of dissolving into each other, merge.
For this occasion the company have collaborated closely with the electroacoustic music composers Fabrizio di Salvo, and Nacho Peña, and the experienced light designer, Pablo Seoane, in creating an intriguing atmosphere of light and darkness, voices and sounds, while delineating a dramaturgy that looks for what it is consciously hidden in the human being. The force of the gestures reverberates through the austerity of the costumes, as the sound empathizes what light has to give at any moment, creating instants of conflict that let the audience in a continuous suspense.

We are able to imagine different individualities for our living, which nowadays keep us separated and divided, fragmented; moreover, we coexist in naive adaptation with the environment we created, moving through tyrannized regimes in fictitious and widespread spaces, indeed, supersaturated and manipulated by the image and the textual.
Further removed from our ability to fold into each other and become part of a whole, it becomes crucial to interpenetrate in a conscious manner into innate and universal survival strategies which may take back forgotten forms of understanding.
The question, however, arises: would be this strategy a safe bet?
* A germinal approach to “TRIPTICO” was showed at the Cultural Center La Jaramilla (Coslada, Madrid) in March 2015, as a closing of a technical and research residency awarded in the XXVIII International Choreographic Competition of Madrid 2014 and hosted by the resident Dance Company Larumbe Danza.
