» New Eyes in Mexico City, Mexico
Carima Neusser is proud to announce the presentation of the performance New Eyes at Pulqueria Insurgentes in Mexico City on January 18th at 8 pm (Free Entrance). The performance is the outcome of a research trip in Mexico, the US and Brazil by choreographer Carima Neusser, visual artist Per Hüttner and composer Siri Jennefelt and with the participation of Pierre Lister and Miguel Ángel Sebastián.
The performance includes newly composed music, choreography, slideshows, smells, tastings and videos. Inspiration is taken from from baroque churches, Mexican soap operas, research on bats, meetings with representatives of the Apache nation, street food and modernist Brazilian literature and includes something called “baby creatures.” The work is like the journey it describes: it can not be understood rationally, but has to be experiences with all five senses – just as you cannot seize the magic of the night without allowing madness to enter your mind.
The artists synthesize an experience for the audience by extracting four moods or situations. Based on these, they create collages where different impression merge into new constellations. In each part, the artists start from impressions, feelings paradoxical and interconnected phenomena instead trying to recount what they experienced rationally.
The project is funded by The Swedish Arts Council
