Rodrigo Sobarzo de Larraechea


All life comes from water. But human beings have long since developed away from this medium. Fascinated by this “alienation”, the young Chilean-Dutch choreographer Rodrigo Sobarzo de Larraechea locates his body underneath an imaginary water surface. In a place where the dynamic qualities of movement in the fluid medium skip time in certain conditions. Hands move across a plastic curtain, over and over again, with increasing speed, until the strokes sound like panting and the objects on stage appear to be transforming. Sobarzo raised international attention with his solo “Mining” two years ago. In “A P N E A” he uses the most modest of means to create a maelstrom of suggestive space that questions even the most self-evident thing that surrounds us in a very sensuous manner: the air around us!
