The escape of the worm
Autumn night in Buenos Aires and I decided to go see “El escapo del gusano”, in the recovered Teatro del Perro in Villa Crespo.It is a dance-theater work, one of the many branches of art that is being seen lately. Directed by Silvina Grinberg: dancer, teacher of contemporary dance (I studied her workshops for several years) and promising creator and choreographer of the new litter of artists.The work has a rather delusional plot and very free interpretation. One, could be how you can escape from the cold and mechanized future, which is coming imminently following a charismatic leader. What interested me was the transiting of the six dancers through choreographic proposals (with the already recognizable label of Grinberg) clearly contemporary, almost hypnotic and catchy, as well as music. They use but not abuse the word, hence the dance-theater, and technological elements such as electronic LED signs. I found it original the intervention in other spaces, such as opening the door of the theater and going out into the street, in the amazement of passers-by. It is an interesting and original work, of one hour long, that can be seen on Saturdays at 20 pm. And finally, I recommend keeping an eye on the upcoming proposals of this promising and talented choreographer Silvina Grinberg.
