Contact information.: 98 444 1148 - 

 It  is  a need to respond to a precarious situation that arises unexpectedly. We aim to activate the expressive means and try to scrutinize the essence of performing arts. From the readings, sounds and variations (silence), the voices in our memory, contractions and expansions of the body (the slowness), spaces, objects, our perception changes conceived under the concept of time-emotion. A moving  thinking.
Improvisation is manifested as an encounter between two artists and offers us means, ways of a singular, playful and experimental artistic life (thought as experience). 

Keyword: "Experimentation."- Essential condition to achieve other contemporary possibilities, revealing the body as organism, history, and subject of enunciation at the same time that reveals hegemonic subjugation modes  that steal our body to manufacture opposition susceptible organisms (man-woman, boy -girl, human-animal, economist- dancer, choreographer-theoretical, healthy -sick, etc...) .. Experimentation is a constant  and never-ending process. (Gilles Deleuze)


State of Encounter are : Chris Frias and Monica Vergara.
