S(obras) is an attempt at exploring how to document and capture the fleeting and nuanced expressions of improvised movement. It is a process in which natural and colored pigments were used as medium to correlate to the energetic and spiritual intensities found, yet mostly unseen by the bare eye, in a dancer’s expression of Afro-Puerto Rican Bomba music.
This process has been a study on preserving the remnants of a dancer’s release; a colorful and faint figment of what will never again transpire.
S(obras) was developed with support from Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater’s Step Up Artists in Residence program.
