“Our Legacy: Abandoned Hospital in Galeras, Sucre” 2019

The final exhibition of our training process took place in the former and now abandoned Galeras Hospital, a place chosen by the young people to symbolically invite the inhabitants of the town to reconcile with their own spaces. The dark stage at night was illuminated by a sequence of lanterns that led the audience to an open-air stage wherein, they would find the Live Painting “Our Legacy”, a celebration of Galerano’s cultural heritage accompanied by the projection of a video of a clock and present bodies that intended to symbolize the roots that give life to the Carob tree.

“In this world, there are two times. A mechanical time and a corporeal time. The first is as rigid and metallic as a heavy iron pendulum that goes and returns, goes and returns, goes and returns. The second rotates and undulates like a bluefish in a bay. The first is inflexible and predetermined. The second chooses the future as it passes by”. Einstein’s Dreams

 

 

The Yonna and the Spiral Time, 2019 

The return to the land of dreams that operate in spiral time, gave us a space of immersion and intercultural exchange where we had the opportunity to move through different territories and mythical times. We learned to move like the wind to the rhythm of the drums that accompany the Yonna’s dance to immerse ourselves in the symbolic complexity of each of its stories.
