Danza Xixón - Teatro Jovellanos
A house is a place to be inhabited. A place that protects us, that covers us.
But… what happens when that place ceases to be habitable and comforting?
Glass House is a perverse utopia in which concepts are opposed. A cataclysm that generates an altered state of mind in search of revelations.
The crystal can be fragile or hard. Transparent or opaque. We can choose to see what’s on the other side or look at our own reflection. A self to which we will look in the eyes or from which we shall turn our eyes depending on how prepared we are to face this process of ecdisis. That virtual reflection that refracts the glass house and through which we will have to go to extract our own reality.
The creator Eduardo Vallejo opens the door to a ritual catarsis in which the individual, as part of an anti-utopian society in which he feels alienated, will try to save himself. Forming part of this collective pulse and learning, as if it were the pillars of a house, that each being is an indispensable piece for this social construction.
To this ascension the first thing must be to have self-consciousness. An identity in which to be reflected in others as part of a whole, a living, latent and feeling organism.
The chimera must be danced.
