IRA
"ConCuerpos Inclusive Dance Company"
IRA is a 2 parts work that addresses how the feeling of anger arises in the face of injustice and has the potential to generate individual and collective change. In the first part choreographer Diana Leon presents anger as a motor source, as an explosion that allows a rebirth. Where do the different expressions of anger live in the body? What states does it provoke? In the second part choreographer Laisvie Ochoa investigates the place of anger in the sentimental configuration of Colombian identity. She was inspired by the photo and audio registration of the event known as El Bogotazo (April 9, 1948), where collective anger spread throughout the country in search of revolution.

The event will start with an introductory talk to give context, present the documentary about the creation process of IRA and talk about the importance of inclusion in the dance field. This will include sign language interpretation service.

About ConCuerpos:
ConCuerpos is the pioneering contemporary dance company in Colombia that includes diverse dancers -with and without disabilities- in their creative work. The company’s political commitment includes breaking down barriers of participation, transforming static notions about dance, and contributing new ethics and aesthetics to the socio-cultural context. ConCuerpos artistic proposal puts singularity first and values difference. At the same time, ConCuerpos seeks to open new creative horizons with each work, proposing innovative and high-quality productions.
Since 2009 ConCuerpos has created professional level dances, both with national and international guest choreographers, as well as from the group’s own exploration. Currently, the company has its fourth cast of dancers, with whom they develop collective creation methods, a training program for professional dancers in the inclusive context, and research on the aesthetics of access.

About IRA:
IRA is a 2 parts work that addresses how the feeling of anger arises in the face of injustice and has the potential to generate individual and collective change. Two choreographers present their own perspective on the subject, working collaboratively with dancers with and without disabilities from ConCuerpos. Although the work consists of two pieces, it develops an artistic language based on the notion of Universal Accessibility, which means to integrate Sign Language and audio descriptions as part of the dramaturgy. This is what is called the aesthetics of access and it seeks that all types of audiences can enjoy the work, including people with visual and hearing impairments.

In the first part, choreographer Diana León, artistic director of ConCuerpos, presents the different expressions of anger in the unique corporalities of each dancer, investigating how to transform these states into choreographic movement. Diana understands anger as a motor source, as an explosion that finally allows a rebirth. Where do the different expressions of anger live in the body? What states or qualities of movement does it provoke? How to maintain a physicality based on anger? How is the interaction between bodies when they are in such a state?

The second part of the work was directed by Laisvie Andrea Ochoa, director of ConCuerpos, who took this opportunity to investigate the place of anger in the sentimental configuration of Colombian identity. The starting point is the event known as El Bogotazo (April 9, 1948), where collective anger spread throughout the country, becoming a milestone in the history of Colombia. She was promptly inspired by the photos of Sady González and by the Nacional Radio broadcast that was taken by the people on that day. The visual input becomes space, and the audio input becomes movement. For her part, the relationship between dance and Sign Language is deepened, enhancing its kinetic characteristic into choreographic terms. Is the fire of claiming for social justice still burning in our skin? What can we learn by narrating with our bodies this eruption of collective violence to help the progression of grassroots movements?
