SOUND OF THE TRAP
Fot this creation, Cecilia worked on a Babylon library od dance and emotions. This library is composed of a diverse repertory complete with ancestral, historical and current dances.
The center of Cecilia s practice focuses on the study of different body constructions and dance cultures. She creates a cadaver exquis; full of imagery, historical, references, contemporary and folk dances that intertwine with recorded music and live sound.
Sound of the trap created in Salzburg, nourishes the spiritual body through Jamaican dancehall, Argentinian Cumbia, Bolivian dance of the wind, Hungarian and Tirolian folk dance, and a choreography created in response to the industrial revolution between the two world wars. Sound of the trap also incorporates music such as Mozart symphony, a contemporary recreation of the Sound of Music musical, Afro Trap and Cumbia.
Before studying at SEAD (Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance) in 2002-2003, Cecilia performed several theatre scenes and monologues written by Thomas Bernhard in Buenos Aires. Today she reflects in this work on the apocalyptic discourse of the characters and rewritings of the text based on Thomas Bernhard s autobiographic series The origin, The gel, The cave, The child and In the heights.
