ENCAJE FOR TEN
Group piece from the solo (2019)
“With the intention to create a community and develop her voice as an activist, JSR created “ENCAJE for Ten.” The piece was created and developed to suit different cast members and locations. This work process was a new step in presenting individuality and collaborative partnership with performers.
“ENCAJE” was a solo created by Judith Sánchez Ruíz and has been performed in various venues in China, USA, Spain, and Germany. ENCAJE for Ten is an extension of this work, an international intensive experimental work for 10 unique performers from diverse ages, cultures, and countries. The motto for this piece is: When greed and indifference is that status quo, it’s time for conversation.
“ENCAJE for Ten is a tribute to be ourselves, to find ourselves inside and outside, to dance with our closest monster and say hello without shame. It is a dance with our many three or four selves, the many me/you which is changing constantly; the piece is an abstract experience of the 24 hours in our daily life, represented in 30 minute performance – of layering and transforming. Subjects, moods, images, physicality, and emotions all change like a radio station.”
