Sistema is a physically engaging practice as research, performance and installation series for all bodies to experience. Connecting people to their own innate rhythm and groove through Afro-Latin music and sounds. This groove is geared to initiate a sense of personal movement freedom.
Sistema, uses an emphasis on weight and initiation in the pelvis and torso. Drawing from Bomba Y Plena sounds and motion. Curet draws from her cultural background as a first generation Bronx native Puerto Rican.
Dialogue is fused together with these influences through contemporary forms to create a new movement vocabulary. This vocabulary aims to connect anyone who joins the space. Curet invites all those within T H E system to take a moment to break free.
How can we communicate to all bodies, in such dire and political times? Well we begin with undoing what we have been taught about movement. I invite all to move, I invite all to feel. Through this feeling, through this investigation I hope we can begin to see, that we truly do have the power to control how we move within this system.
(This performance is the result of a 6 month residency at BkSD involving mixed media, sound, voice, movement, and led improvisation. This is a chance to connect to one another. This is a chance to connect to our bodies.)
Young guest choreorapher in residence with CPP, Fernando Moya Delgado premiers new work Conform alongside Sistema.
