„De cara a la galeria“ is a phrase from the Spanish theaters of the Golden Age. In the corrales de comedias (the „chicken coops“), the actors* sought the light applause facing the gallery where the common people were seated, trying to endear themselves to the masses. The play explores the connections between appearance and reality, between self-representation and the perception of others. It asks about our own motivation to act and the influence others have on our actions. What part of what we do and say actually arises only from ourselves and what are we willing to do in order to be perceived positively by those around us?
The artistic dialogue in this holographic duo is conducted by the protagonists* through different forms of expression and allows contemporary dance and movements inspired by martial arts to come into contact with each other. After „Dematierialized“ and „TPC – The Perfect Clone“, „De cara a la galería“ is the third holographic piece created under the artistic direction of Sara Blasco in collaboration with Tobias Zimmermann and Alessandro de Matteis.
