The situation of waiting and its effects guide the research and creation of Uruguayan performer Lucía Sismondi and Brazilian director Fausto Ribeiro.
In the format of a short film, the dance solo is developed from physical and internalized notions of what is considered presence, permanence, availability and virtuality. “This work is an invitation to contemplate the saturated time of our daily lives,” they consider.
In the constant search for a language pregnant with different forms of expression, the duo approaches the theme from the body on stage that waits for something in a suspended time in which perhaps nothing will happen… The work is the product of a research called #enlínea (#inline), dedicated to reflecting on the nature of waiting and the unavoidable expectation of coming to be. A perception that became more acute after the 2020 health emergency, but that has always poetically mobilized artists such as Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges, one of the project’s sources.
With stints at Unicamp in their education, the creators live in Uruguay and founded, in 2017, Istmo Nómade, an art research collective.
