The Festival FAM Otoño presents Parece nada, a reflection on the gaze that will be staged this Friday at the Auditorio
The Sala Castillo hosts this production by the Sevillian choreographer and teacher Guillermo Weickert
The Auditorio de Tenerife presents the dance performance Parece nada (Doesn't look like anything to me), a reflection on the gaze. This dance piece by the Sevillian choreographer, stage director, performer, and teacher Guillermo Weickert is part of the Autumn Moving Arts Festival, FAM Otoño. The performance takes place on Friday the 21st of October in Castillo Hall (Sala Castillo) at 7.30 p.m.
The dance piece Parece nada (Doesn't look like anything to me) is the response of the androids of the television series Westworld when they see something they are programmed to ignore. Based on the film of the same name that was written and directed by Michael Crichton in 1973, Westworld proposes a dystopian future that we don't have to travel to in order to see how naturally we forget that we all have blind spots that prevent us from seeing an important part of the reality that is in front of our eyes.
Structured around the four general vision screening tests (visual acuity, refraction, visual field, and colour vision) and with the help of a television screen that constantly tries to catch the viewer's attention, Parece nada proposes, above all, a meeting between the creator and his viewer; a game, a journey into the labyrinth of individual perception, a love for sharing the intimacy of looking and letting oneself be looked at, only to dissolve into the counterparty as an encounter with ourselves.
Based on an attempt to place the eyes as an organ of perception and the perceived object (viewed), Parece nada proposes an exercise of taking another look at the stage, those who inhabit it, and their movements as a testing ground. Part of a series of creations, the themes of this performance revolve around the relationship between the organs of perception and movement: if our senses are our window of knowledge that opens out to the world, their retraction and observation are our doors of self-knowledge, connecting us and leading us to ourselves.
Guillermo Weickert is a choreographer, stage director, and performer, and teaches contemporary dance. His long professional career was marked by his deep and passionate curiosity about the potential of stage creation as a cultural asset and a tool for social transformation.
The family proposal Ehuna, of Teatro Paraíso, is the next show of the Autumn Moving Arts Festival FAM Otoño that takes place on 29 October at 5:00 p.m. in the Chamber Hall. Created for young children (recommended for children aged between 1 and 5) it explores the way that the body is linked to movement through textiles, fabrics, and clothing.
On 19 November at 7:30 p.m., the Gestring sisters bring their A muerte to the auditorium’s Castillo Hall. The creators, along with David Climent, have devised a show whose title is presented as a slogan, as a form of life, and as a declaration of intent for any show.
Lastly, Poliana Lima presents a female dancer troupe for her show Las cosas se mueven pero no dicen nada (Things move but don’t say anything), a piece based on the idea of permanence and insistence. It evokes the processes of transformation and repetition of nature, without alluding to the extras on stage. It takes place on 17 December at 7:30 p.m. at the Symphony Hall.
The FAM Festival, a proposal by Auditorio de Tenerife and a commitment to Spanish contemporary dance, comes alongside the artistic circuit supported by the National Institute of Performing Arts and Music (INAEM) and developed by the Spanish Network of Theatres: Danza a Escena 2022.
