"Bolero de Bienvenida" takes place in a universe of dream, nightmare, semi-reality. The voices recorded live, multiple, scattered in the space, blur the boundaries of the body and the room. "Bolero de Bienvenida" is a solo that seeks to decentralize the figure of the performer by perceiving the piece/choreographic material as a living entity.
How can you exist in an environment that dies because of your presence?
By placing her body in second place Lorena Stadelmann aspires to a phantasmagorical quality of movement.
In Bolero de Bienvenida, Lorena Stadelmann continues her research around the voice. She chooses singing as a performative tool to insert a story or narrative material inside her choreographies.
Collector of megaphones, she uses these objects to amplify her voice. Singing a lullaby through a megaphone as a claim to sensitivity and poetry.
For Bolero de Bienvenida, Lorena Stadelmann continues to develop her visual work through her research into textile practices by making masks, costumes and scenographic elements.
