"SERENITY RAVE", BY LAURA RAMÍREZ

"serenity rave is a place, a heartbeat, something that is not visible but is present. It would be something like a suspension that remains, that does not crystallize and that in itself has the ability to mutate in order to open the multiple possibilities that we can find in what we do not yet know and that, perhaps, scares us. A place where the body is an ambiguous territory that makes us perceive the world but not completely and, in which, dance acts as a medium. A rift in which past, present and future converge. A way to invoke dancing all these times together, becoming one, which is sustained forever. serenity rave is the night in which we learned to speak with the body, in which we were overwhelmed and something threatened ruin; It is the night I discovered that my arm was his leg and my head was a ghost, and I, who was standing there dancing, I keep dancing."

Taking the exhibition space as a support for their actions, the various actors will display their temporary projects interacting with the exhibition installed at that time in the gallery.
