Design Statement

El Movimiento de las Imágenes is a show about a word that connects it all.
It’s the sound of two black holes colliding; it’s how you greet someone from a distance or let them know you’re drowning; it’s how Einstein and Virginia Woolf understood the Universe. This show is about waves.
The characters inhabit a constraint Universe marked by three colors, geometric shapes, clean grids and a series of multimedia tools which take in different roles. Media starts as an omnipresent character talking to the performers, mixing animation, and pop culture to construct itself. As the show progresses, the performers take control of the technology and use it as their tool to show the audience a different perspective and proportion of the elements on stage with a more cinematic view. The show plays constantly with a parallel of what the audience witnesses and how the media can frame this view.
