La Descarga [Digital]
Artistic team: Juan Urbina and Amelia Uzategui
Somatic Sauce goes for the [Digital] Drama! This is a 45 minute interactive, dance performance created and performed by Juan Urbina and Amelia Uzategui that integrates the principles of Salsa dance from a somatic perspective. Via Zoom, they invite audiences to both witness as well as participate in their proposal. They welcome those interested as well as those who are not knowledgeable in Salsa. All will share an aesthetic experience with this music and dance genre. Using a caring approach, they include narratives from their lived experiences with Salsa as members of the Latinx diaspora. They contextualize Salsa dance history and engage audiences with improvisational scores. The performance includes dances and spoken text, in English language with a little bit of Español.
Somatic Sauce thanks the support of Projektförderung aus Mitteln des Härtefall- und Notfallfonds des Kulturdezernats Frankfurt am Main, Gallus Theater, ID Frankfurt, and Z – Zentrum für Proben und Forschung.
