Two spaces left empty by the pandemic are used for a piece that talks of the then and now.

ECDISIS_acciones para mudar de piel is a piece with a series of chapters that, like peeling back layers of skin, delve into the social and technological communication transformation that we are going through as a society. Based on a study of ecdysis biological processes and the metamorphosis that some living beings go through to grow, Mundomoebio personifies the reflections that have grown in intensity since 2020 - after the social uprising and the pandemic - from a transdisciplinary perspective, using body, image and movement. The strain between the concept of two apparently empty spaces talks of the then and now.

“A reflection on the paradox of living hyper-connected lives that are devoid of physical contact in a system that alienates the body and encourages competition over cooperation”.

-It is an interesting exercise in using images to fuse two performances held in different spaces, creating a site-specific type of bodily improvisation. Both pieces emerge from the idea of processes and growth as the basis for something that has no end.

-Using dance, it reflects on bodily transformations and movement in different contexts, and on how the pandemic has transformed public, urban, natural and personal spaces as a result of bodies’ new way of inhabiting them.

Video dance: This genre emerged as a result of the experimentation between dance and image capture techniques. It dates back to the appearance of video art and the beginnings of cinema and evolved in parallel with these over time. It is not a record of a dance on video, but rather dance and the camera form a symbiotic relationship. In this kind of play, the creation of the choreography typically only exists on film or video. “Neither the dance nor the method of rendering are in service to each other, but are rather partners or collaborators in the creation of a hybrid form”, says North American producer and theorist Douglas Rosemberg.
