Crisálida May 27, 2015 | diegofun | More on Performance
Crisalida is an ensemble piece choreographed by Diego Funes for the twelve dancers of De…Dance. Funes explores the limits of ensemble work, using the idea of the corps and its inherent interconnectedness to shape the piece. Based on the process of internal reflection, the episodic structure of Crisalida unearths the numerous facets of the self. Individuals, duets, and groups emerge from the amoebic, entangled mass of the ensemble to recount their history. The two chairs placed in the center of the stage serve as a sort of anchor for these vignettes; a space appropriated for recollection. As the piece progresses, the number of dancers that come forth increases, and the time between the vignettes shortens, effectively closing the gap between these disparate visions and the greater body of the group. Crisalida culminates with the union of the dancers, suggesting that the individual they collectively form has reconciled these parts of himself, and achieved resolution.Read More
