The play between tension-relaxation, the tense muscles that are a sign of our times, are ironically transformed into fragility and anxiety, whimsically reproducing situations in which the body would be out of control.
The recurring image of the beach as an idyllic place of pleasure and tranquility gives us an oasis from the chaos and noise of our current existence, fulfilling our desire to disappear off the face of the Earth. We attempt to teleport ourselves towards a paradise far from reality, using the power of the imagination. Is the beach really a paradisiacal getaway? Does vacation equal disconnection? In direct contrast to this imaginary state of total peace, and using humor and music as a backdrop, the piece delves into the movement of a body that is noticeably agitated and trembling in poses of excitement; exploring pathologies or mental states that provoke restlessness and deliberately changing the usual association between mind and body to artificially represent actions that express physical discomfort. The play between tension-relaxation, the tense muscles that are a sign of our times, are ironically transformed into fragility and anxiety, whimsically reproducing in which the body would be out of control.
