…Y ESCAPARON DEL PESO DE LA OSCURIDAD
Y escaparon del peso de la oscuridad, is a contemporary dance play co-created by ESCÉNICA EN MOVIMIENTO and directed by the Danish choreographer Thomas Bentin. This contemporary dance and language play deals with that essential heartbeat of human beings searching for a sense of life and happiness in a rigid and every day more hostile society. Simple in its staging, but complex in its stage display, the play has four performers giving content to the space and intervening the landscape of the city of Concepción, giving color and texture to the journey that this play invites. It’s through cycles and moments that one realizes the diverse experiences of being, making visible the tinges when we relate with our peers within the neoliberal scheme.
The choreographer Thomas Bentín is who directs the dance company Escénica en Movimiento, which is part of the cultural center with the same name, and it’s the center of activities to their creation area. Formed by a group of dancers from Concepción who, from their territory, seek to expand the sensitivity of the discipline towards other communities and to be a circulation and artistic mediation platform through the exploration of different techniques, crossing between disciplines, stage mechanisms, promoting collective work.
Originated as a company in the year 2013, has toured with its four plays along Chile, Brazil, and Spain.
