"To support, support time, support one another together, you support me, I support you, we support and we release each other until we vanish into the air " -- Paulina RUIZ CARBALLIDO
HOLDING NOSTALGIA is a work of screendance that explores concepts such as ritual, absence/presence, nomadism, games, impossibility, corporeal joy, the panic and poetics of living. Holding Nostalgia glorifies the poetry of daily life through games, the frenzy of multiple tasks and animated acts to express various states of the body and soul in relation to "the other", which evolve through action. Holding Nostalgia proposes a choreo-cinematic-pleasurable-visual-kinesthetic-sensory voyage through layers of zooms, images, sounds, noise, words and intensities, which both support and release each other.
