La fragilidad de los verbos transitivos

Cia. Roberto G. Alonso

Dominion Theatre

Tomando como punto de partida historias reales y con la complicidad de tres dramaturgos de reconocida trayectoria (Marc Rosich, Carlos Be y Helena Tornero), se ha querido profundizar en un tema, la transexualidad y la identidad de género, que aún hoy despierta controversia y a menudo incomodidad en una sociedad occidental avanzada y democrática como la nuestra (si nos adentramos en otras culturas, y otros regímenes políticos, encontramos aun mucho más rechazo y desconocimiento por el tema). De hecho, la gran diversidad de maneras de afrontarlo hace que no haya dos vivencias iguales y que cada individuo se enfrente al reto de forma diferente. Todos tienen en común, sin embargo, que la sociedad que los rodea no los comprende, los trata injustamente, los margina y los estigmatiza.

No es un espectáculo documento ni una denuncia reivindicativa y social, que también lo puede ser, sino que se quiere enfocar desde el sentimiento, intentar buscar qué motiva e impulsa a nuestros protagonistas a nadar contracorriente en una sociedad que los estigmatiza y los niega, que los arrincona, que no les da las mismas oportunidades y los obliga en ocasiones a la ocultación y la vergüenza, que los aboca a la autocensura y a la falta de autoestima hasta el suicidio, y que a veces, incluso, los lleva a la marginalidad y sufren agresiones verbales y físicas hasta la muerte.

¿De dónde sacan la fuerza para luchar contra todo esto? ¿Qué los lleva a rebelarse y nadar contracorriente? ¿Qué los motiva a romper con lo establecido? Son tantas y tantas las preguntas que nos llevan a hacer este espectáculo…

Borderline

Wang Ramirez

Royal Court Theatre

Borderline marks a turning point in Sébastien Ramirez and Honji Wang’s research and choreographic language. The dance expands in a dialogue between technique and the art of rigging, while the reflection on human relationships now includes the reality of living together in our democracies. Social boundaries are evoked by the interplay of physical forces on the stage as well as through testimonies - collected from the dancers’ friends and relatives, or from the media, and broadcasted in voice over.

The rigging element, a scenic tool notorious as Deus Ex Machina in the Greek tragedy, allows us to approach weightlessness to create a timeless poetics. In the interaction with the rigger, the body becomes the object of a “weight game”, of balance and freedom. Attached to cables, the five dancers bring to light and transpose the desire of freedom inherent in all forms of dance, especially Hip Hop. With a wealth of experience in levitation, Hip Hop discovers new ways to thwart gravity in its virtuosity of footwork.

The gestures and the costumes create images that reflect Greek and Korean traditions in animality, as well as in our desires and angsts. Between the promise of freedom and the violence of keeping our bodies on the ground, is a space allowing the invention of a new gestural approach. With great fluidity, the piece displays accents of acrobatics, visual poetry and the urban universe. It extends to the ground where the gravitational borderlines shift horizontally, in a mobile scenography that continues to evolve throughout the performance.

Simon David: Virgin

Simon David

Piccadilly Theatre

Simon David has everything he needs to be an international superstar — the voice, the musical talent, the look, and a very unique selling point; he’s a virgin.

With a four-piece band ready to accompany him, Simon exudes presence as he walks on stage, scantily clad in a Beyoncé-esque black leotard. At only twenty one, it seems as though Simon was born to perform. The confidence and skill that radiates from him is almost mesmeric. From the minute he walks onstage, he is ready to entertain his audience with his skilful storytelling. Not only does Simon tell stories and sing but he also aids his band with an assortment of instruments including the saxophone, accordion and clarinet.

Far from normal stand-up comedy, he switches between catchy songs and spoken segues filled with gags before then being used to introduce the songs. Although containing multiple moments that have the audience laughing (some uncontrollably), these segues are a bit pale in comparison to the incredible musical numbers, which are filled with humorous moments themselves.

With songs like Threw It Away and Are you f****** kidding me? this young talent is a must-see. His musicality and the writing are incredibly polished and every song is performed with an outstanding amount of conviction and talent.

This is a show that has all of the potential to transfer from Camden to Edinburgh, assuming that Simon has not signed his record contract by then! I have no doubt that Simon David is going to be a name that we will all know one day.

Climax

Yasmeen Godder Studio

New London Theatre

Described by Artforum Magazine as Yasmeen Godder's "tour-de-force" choreography CLIMAX has been originally conceived as a site-specific performance for a Museum's space. Reassembled anew by Godder to fit into varied of open spaces the work is an active invitation to the audience to move as they engage in an emotionally intimate, yet forcefully provoking performance. Incorporating tension-filled movement phrases from Godder's 15 years of artistic oeuvre, the three hour long creation is choreographed to blend between performers, audience and space. The six dancers are situated in-close proximity to the public allowing themselves and the viewers to be captured and released from each other's grasp. The almost ritualistic creation of circle shaped forms in the space turns the viewers into witnesses as well as participants.

Seamlessly deconstructing and integrating new situations out of Godder's physical, emotional, communal, spatial, and conceptual lexicon of movements, the dancers are reassessing the human condition as it culminates throughout Godder's concrete reality. The essence of dance and performance is rendered through the deftness and sensitivity of the dancers as they challenge the viewers' perspective of space and time. Examining the art of performance and its relevance in our troubled age, CLIMAX utilizes repetitions, unisons and group tasks in an attempt to critically investigate current notions of national identity and self-determination.
