Festival Sâlmon and MACBA present Untitled (Holding Horizon), a choreography that continues Alex Baczyński-Jenkins’ engagement with negotiations of desire, the materiality of gestures, and affections of a queer commons. Through sensual, alienated gestures and the box step —a movement used in several social dances— synchronization, pleasure and alliance coexist with disorientation, limitation, and loss.
On the thresholds of visibility and invisibility, the performers navigate the fluctuating dynamics of collectivity, intimacy, and interdependence. They affect, and become affected by, the live mixed sound and light, while repetition and duration elicit shifting perceptions and associations. A memory of a rave, a ghostly gathering, a celebration and mourning, a militant congregation, a pastoral imaginary. In this altered state, the box step becomes a vessel for the limit as material.
The audience will be able to enter and leave the space at their leisure.
