MY BREAST ON THE TABLE
Dance Interactive Performance (2019)
“My Breast on the table” cannot be choreographed, it can only be performed. The piece appropriates the “Yo” that rethinks and rebuilds itself permanently, the pain handled as costume, as a breathe, a curtain, an indomitable circumstance of life” – JSR The experimental, improvisational, interactive solo work intentionally mirrors Reality TV (as unscripted actions of everyday people ) and the popular TED Talk lectures. “My Breast on the table” is a new solo designed and performed by Judith Sanchez Ruiz with Classical Pianist and Composer Santiago Gervasoni. Can a black woman from the Caribbean create her own universe? As a constant exploration, JSR uses improvisation as a complex tool for choreography. She rewrites how she perceives choreography today as an artist and as a performer. “My Breast on the Table” has a strident structure featuring autobiographical gestures.
