El Bimbo is an improvisatory dance and music performance in which I was dancing in and coproducing with the Vivarium colllective in 2012. The performances were in Valvesali Oulu in October-November 2012. Other performances are planned for the spring 2014 in Barker Theatre in Turku.
The improvisation in this piece has a precise rhythm and a structure inside which all things and even impossible things become possible. Every performance is completely different and yet the piece is the same: with us as performers having full responsibility to recreate our relation to all the different tasks again and again while performing. All the subjects of the improvisation have been carefully chosen and labored through different processes.
