What is indeed internal listening? Exige otro t i e m p o (Demands another t i m e) is the result of two and a half years of investigation of movement derived from inner listening, where the body has been given opportunity to inhabit and speak. In this listening, motives of recurrent movement have been found, such as the agitation of the body, its undulation and its pauses. It is in that internal navigation where one finds oneself, one feels, one perceives the demand to live for instants, in another time.
Camera, movement and editing: Dalia Ju.
Music: Cristobal Tapia de Veer.
“Exige otro t i e m p o” was awarded with Honorary mention at National Screendance Award MOVIMIENTO EN MOVIMIENTO #7, 2018.
Jury note: In this work dance seems to be the source of creation developed with the tradition of experimental films. Time is relative, abstract and personal. The body is dissolved into a moving surface and shown by fragments making a mysterious self-portrait that generates questions. We find a sensory search for movement throughout the loss of space.
Jury: Anna Macdonald, Andrea Keiz and a vote by Movimiento en Movimiento.
