Proposal by Pedro G. Romero and Teresa Lanceta at the Night of the Museums
Teresa Lanceta and Pedro G. Romero join forces to present Up and down the stairs, a live performance that will take place during the Night of the Museums and will feature the participation of dancers Javiera de la Fuente, Fuensanta ‘La Moneta’ and Ana Morales. Pedro G. Romero will read his own texts and the three dancers will perform around Lanceta’s weavings and fabrics.
‘Work on good prose has three steps: a musical stage when it is composed, an architectonic one when it is built, and a textile one when it is woven.’
Walter Benjamin, One-Way Street, 1928
There is an element of writing in Lanceta's work. Not just in her wonderful texts, but in the tension between event and text that lies in her gesture, in the way she does things, in the material itself. This reading by Pedro G. Romero, with the dancers, underscores and makes visible what is written in the weavings, fabrics and textiles of Lanceta.
