this performance is a bodily exploration of difference.
departing from experience and from philosophy contamination i delve into the possibility of dissolving some oppositions that neutralizes difference, imprisoning within dichotomist categories such as man - animal / male - female / death - living / presence - absence / body - mind - etc. the performance will present open ongoing questions related to these through choreographic inquiry

STONE SOUP

Stone Soup is an interactive performance piece. The audience will participate as co-creators and collaborators. The final outcome will be a synthesis of the poetry and emotions that are all tossed in the pot. Through movement and words, stillness and silence we will create our own aroma, taste our own flavor and perhaps scald our very throats that sing the world into being.

Performance by David Brown

Lucía Naser is researcher and artist of contemporary dance and performance. Sociologist by the UDELAR, MA in Performing Arts in PPGAC -UFBA. Graduate student in Romance Languages and Literatures (UM). My research line involves dance from a political perspective; the intersemiotic relations between dance and other languages and knowledge, and an exploration of the intersections between the post-structuralist and Derrida's philosophy with the cognitive and discursive practices of the dancing body.

David Brown is a performance artist. His work is always infused with the immediacy of improvisation. He may use elements of dance, poetry, music, painting, or meditation in achieving the goals of any particular performance. He has a great interest in the interactive nature of audience and performer. He holds a BA from Oberlin College in Expanding Consciousness Through Creativity.
