apricot trees exist or an impossible walk

The second choreographic attempt of the work apricot trees exist or an impossible walk, deals with time passing, memory and loss. It seeks to bring on the surface the forces that curve time and constitute narrations. It is an attempt to grasp the pace of time, to embody it, to visualize it, focusing in the antagonism among present and past. This instant surrender of present to past entails a devastating loss, which can be only captured and restored in our memories and memories are reached when our relation with time allows a moment of interruption; resisting the ceaseless pace of time, a moment of withdrawal from the intensity of the nowness, rendering time an undifferentiated temporal dimension. From this point of view, present can be re-invented, can restore the absence.
