"Human being goes in fear of his attainment, his beauty, his life.
He is not able to let them go. He insists on everything.
Meanwhile body parts are los;, they are cut."
The piece was born from the experience of a monastery stay.
In the past few years Batarita has put greater emphasis on adopting stage works to special spaces. Also it happened that special spaces inspired her for creating stage works. In both cases the strong visual characteristic of the space melts together with the strong physicality of the performing body. A body which is lack of the conventional performing aesthetics.
Voices breaking out are calling the screaming signs of micro sounds that lie within the viewer.
Gentle and underling, spiritual and profane, ancient and contemporary are all appear in Batarita’s dance creations. She is playing with her body in a way that it can turn to an ignoble, a man, a woman or even to an animal. Her character is the instinct-self pushing through the human body.
