É Obra

Derived from Italian, the word opera means ‘work’ in a double sense: the labour of doing something and its result. Opera refers both to operatic work in a theatre and for labour work in a factory. ‘Work’ and ‘performance’ are closely linked.

É Obra explores the relationship between dance and work. If opera is characteristic of an effort to coexist languages, then É Obra explores different language systems — oral, written, and gestural — like matter to make the body resonate and overflow, such as: texture, sensuality, and sensation.

Focusing on ideas of translating language into body and landscape, this work researches how to create choreographic structure through the dance itself, rather than the choreography producing the dance. By interacting with gesture, sign, and sound, we seek to expand the body to its most immanent social condition, moving towards the flesh.
