First principle: always be literally in touch.
Second principle: the movement is generated from the inside out. simple rules with a complex outcome.
Materializing relationships, constructing buildings, working under social constraints, testing the systems where we are in, making them stronger, or not.
If capitalism is based on efficiency of production, I want the movement to be inefficent, that would spend tuns of energy and force simply for being together. Moving each other, supporting each other, helping each other, succeeding together and failing together. In times of increasing virtual relationships, economic bubbles, and forms of immaterial labor I wanted to go back to the body, to movement, to physical interdependency. Dance as physical work. This is how the main restriction for the work came to existance.
Rule number one: always be literally in touch
Generating movement from a political premise, but having the movement speak for itself. Movement that is strong as movement, that can be independent from the original concept and can be contextualized differently.
Every dancer should have an equal role in this piece, but we should not be the same. Strong individuals working within strict systems where the rules are applied by and to everyone. Working to be together and being together to work. But most importantly using this restriction to challenge our own selfs. Not only being in touch, but...
Rule number two: using this restriction to move in ways we wouldn't be able to move on our own
Dance as labor and Choreography as craftwork, but also, choreography as a place to dream of a better world.

Cecilia Lisa Eliceche was born in Bahia Blanca, Argentina where she started her training in ballet and contemporary dance at the local Conservatoire of Dance.. From 2004 to 2006 she lived in Madrid: studied Contemporary in the RCPD (Real conservatorio Profecional de Danza) and Ballet with Victor Ullate. In her last year she collaborated and performed ¨Play¨ from Pablo Esbert Lilienfeld.
From 2006 she moved to ßrussels to attend the Training and Research Cycles at PARTS. In November 2008 she went to NY as an ex-change student at Movement Research and to collaborate in the creation of DD Dorvillier's CPAU, Get Ready!. In the last years in the search for a way of expressing her political concerns she created ¨Mi Cacerola¨ and ¨Trio One¨ (in collaboration with Peter Savel and Anneleen Keppens). As a choregraphical practice she created the quintet ”D.A.N.C.E.” ¨The time lapse opera¨ is her work with Elisa Yvelin focused on vantage point and the medium of dance from a very classical perspective.
Currently she is working as a freelance dancer in Brussels for "AD4TNA" and ¨Tentative Assembly¨ by Eleanor Bauer, in New York for "The Green Surround" and new work by Heather Kravas. In parallel she's develops her own work, currently touring with "Cow's Theory" and starting a new physical research.
