Now and Then, Here and There
“What are the minimum conditions of recognition of what is seen?
Does the performative context determine the interpretation of movement?
Through recognition, how does a meaningless movement become meaningful?
Now and Then, Here and There explores these questions and other issues. Actions that change identities and question relations.The body of the performer becomes the battleground for two stories unfolding themselves in the same time and space.”
Néstor García was born in 1985. After studying at the Conservatory of contemporary dance in Valencia, he moved to Barcelona to pursue theater studies at Institut del Teatre. In 2007, while still studying theater, he began to perform for choreographers like Sol Picó and Jeremy Wade. It was then when he moved to Brussels to join P.A.R.T.S (school directed by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker) with the intention of developing his ideas as a maker. He created some pieces that have been presented in several international festivals, the solo The secret of a meaningful piece (2010) the piece for five performers Now and Then, Here and There (2011), and Specific objects without specific form (2012). He also took part in several projects with choreographers/theoreticians like Jonathan Burrows, Thierry De Mey, Bojana Cvejic, Christophe Wavelet, Xavier Le Roy, Mårten Spånberg and Tino Sehgal.
