It is about working and developing the qualities of presence and interpretation located between who we are (the person) and what we represent (the character), based on the hypothesis that we cannot be the one or the other when our image It is situated in a context of public observation.
What we are and what we represent are two different things and between these two realities another entity of ourselves moves, an alter-ego that thinks the present at every moment, that person who thinks the action in the present is the one that interests us . This ambiguous situation causes the viewer the ability to choose what he is seeing.
Likewise, a work is built with several levels:
the appearances of things
what things are for real
what is the representation, the present really; and how it is provoked from the present of the work or live with the public.
Therefore, we will work to establish a functional relationship between reflection (what one is), action (what one does) and communication (what one intends), in order to find or create their scenic alter ego and define each other and what is represented.
All this will be elaborated from a physical and psychic work and an artistic reflection at various levels, such as:
The secret and ambiguity: variations and measure of what we show and what we hide.
The anonymous presence. Our image in the collective space. The intimate and the universal.
Self-portrait and self-fiction.
The relationship with the public, the look and the dialogue, the relationship with reality, the idea of theater in the theater, the public space and the private space.
The sense of humor as empathy, as a transmission vector.
