Corpus by Xavier Bobés is an encounter between a sculptural piece, a manipulator of objects and a musician. A whispered scenic dialogue where only 25 people can participate in each performance. The artist proposes an exploration of the movement of a sculptural object in relation to the human body, animals and plants. It is a poetic reflection on objectification that seeks to find a way to interpret, transform and depict it.
Corpus is also a journey between a man and his form, an impossible dialogue unravelling the hours of a life, undoing paths trodden, becoming smaller only to disappear again. The objectification of the bond that everyone has with their “object body”, awakening its poetic meaning and studying its possibilities for interpretation, transformation, visual representation and movement.
A co-production by L’Auditori de Barcelona and Teatros del Canal in Madrid.
With the collaboration of L’Animal a l’Esquena and Azala.
With the support of the Generalitat de Catalunya.
