Yabba is a cosmos with its own order, its own rhythm and its own movement systems that invites you to enter a new logic. A hybrid of different technologies, an amalgam of entities in constant transformation in time that produce other things through coexistence and encounters with those who observe them. Things that transpose images – concepts, ideas and emotions that occur precisely at that moment of encounter with the entities of this deformed and changing cosmos. A kind of world that is everything and nothing, is full and empty, that takes all forms but does not yet have any. Yabba is right there, changing. It paints its own colours, it changes its shapes, it unfolds its materiality… This state of constant transformation proposes an attentive look: a look that pays attention, originating from its inability to name what it looks at. Yabba will be accompanied by Lanoche, a musical project by Ángela de la Serna, a mix of experimental electronics, ambient, deep house and atmospheric slow techno.
work travels between choreography, cinema and visual arts. Since 2004, she has made pieces that explore the relationship with the viewer as the space in which modes of representation face crisis.
Ranging from El Caso del Espectador to her latest pieces, Blob and Yabba, this relationship has mutated from a place of “understanding” theatrical and cinematographic conventions, that is, from the expertise, to the intentional loss of references, where the artist, the piece and the spectator behave towards each other as strangers.
Ticket combo: With the ticket for Yabba the performance The past is a foreign country is only € 5. Available at the TQW box office and in our webshop.
