Dimecres de so i cos Nuno Rebelo + Constanza Brnčić presenten “¡Si se diera un cuerpo al bullicio!”
Nuno Rebelo and Constanza Brnčić have been collaborating for several years in different works of scenic creation. Their shared interest in experimental music, improvisation and the pleasure of performative play has led them to meet on different occasions and in different contexts to improvise with sound and movement. From these encounters, some with an audience, others behind closed doors, a specific language has emerged that combines physical action and musical creation.
Si se diera un cuerpo al bullicio is an attempt to capture these encounters scenically. The piece explores the relationship between movement and sound production, working from the development of structures. These generate diverse compositions that fluctuate between the random and the necessary. The performers use various objects and instruments which, amplified, produce a sound space and, at the same time, make images and actions appear. The result is a piece that moves in a terrain between concert and performance.
