Solo Performance is a dance performance based on a simple aleatory game mechanism consisting of interpreting 5 different songs
(punk, classical, pop, electronic, and a Mexican song) to generate contrasting and unrelated actions and movement material that traces a concentric pattern in space. The use of objects such as a few lemons and a paper bag add also to the unpredictability of the game. The piece is dance in silence except for the Mexican song which - mimicking the lyrics - I translate to the audience at the end of the performance.
