Very Very Slightly

Direction and choreography 2020

The market values the quality of a diamond based on its clarity. The more impurities (or inclusions) a diamond has, the more it devalues its price. But it is precisely these small internal cracks that allow each diamond to refract light in a unique and genuine way. Very Very Slightly is at the same time a reflection on the value of knowing how to penetrate each one’s impurities to make them shine. Dance, music and light will be in charge of inviting the public to gloat over the expressive value of dissolving ourselves in our internal limitations and just like that vibrate with and towards our surroundings and environment, beyond any form or ideal.

In short, we would be speaking of a system. A system that is found in the intersection, in the joints of the theory of Dance itself, a system that casts doubts on the spectacle as a choreographic purpose. A system that is extremely temporal, geometric and mathematical, a system that touches infinity, a spiral itself. On the way to imperfection, the light increases, and the fissures expand to collapse any attempt of coordination between spectacle and Dance.

Sensuality, beauty and imperfection are qualities that diamonds share among them as well as with Eulàlia Bergadà’s new piece Very Very Slightly.
