They are two artists
28 years apart
They don’t know each other
They don’t speak the same language
They have different universes
They understand things differently
They have two weeks
They don’t want translators
Everything they do is an excuse to build a space of connection,
a place for communication
They understand each other
But they keep on trying
And let go.
They let it go.
An invitation from Mijke Harsem and Tanz Haus NRW Düsseldorf to Aitana to create a Duo with Johanna, in one week, working together.
The result is an hilarious, intense, timeless and unpredictable “show”. Where these two-artist dialogue in nonsense about future, universes, and possibilities to escape together.
La Casa (con Johanna) is a new step in the Aitana Cordero´s bigger research La Casa.
In this investigation she works around the ideas Building Houses/Destroying Theatres, strategies for togetherness, intimacy and the physicality of constructing.
In La Casa. research she has worked with different collectives, in a conscious attempt of separation.
Up till now she created La Casa (Ellos) with men, La Casa (with Johanna) with a special girl, Nest (La Casa with kids) and Build (La Casa Teenagers).
La Casa is still in progress.
