INCORPORER | KIDs

Fifteen years after its creation, Olga de Soto revisits this first "accompanied solo" in which, from the background, she follows a dancer  whose dance sees the relationship to the object at the heart of the action.
What can we do with the air we breathe or the water we drink? What happens in our bodies or objects? Can we blow into a balloon until it pops? Can we inhale or exhale air through water? How can we create waves or a storm inside a balloon? To incorporate air, water, their sounds, the space; to create one body out of many; to intimately unite one matter with another into an entirely new element, bring them in as parts of a whole, defined, demarcated. Lend body and resonance to the actions and sounds of a wandering that unfolds near the action, in the intimate gesture of one whose attention is fully absorbed by the observation of his explorations.
Thus, in INCORPORER, the dancer is an explorer, uncovering a dance where movement arises from observation and exploring different  states of matter and the two fluids necessary for life: air and water to explore a series of physical experiences that he unfolds in space, like a physician in the laboratory. Through the dance that emerges with each new experience, he weaves a dialogue with ordinary and simple objects,  discovers the possibilities of his body and the resistance of the materials while gradually making the inaudible audible to unfold a  poetic universe that plays with scale and with our perception. The sound work subtly amplifies the performer's actions to make the subterranean  life of his organism resonate in this dialogue with the elements.
Through this physical relationship with the environment, between exchanges of fluids and transfers of energy, INCORPORER | KIDs  reveals the immediate relationship of a dancer to the physical world. This physicality is simply laid bare, and that takes on the appearance  of combat and a fusion with the invisible in a journey full of suspense, guiding him to act with complete freedom.
This piece exists in different versions and can be presented on a conventional theatre stage or in an exhibition space, for an adult  audience or a young audience.
