Tabakalera taulara : soy lo que me rodea
Performing arts summer programme in the attic
This summer, Thursdays on the Attic are going to be devoted to enjoying performing arts. From 7 July to 8 September (+ 11 September), each Thursday there’ll be a chance to get to know and participate in the different projects of performing arts, performance pieces and stageable projects.
Altogether, there’ll be eleven offerings by Javier Vaquero, Cris Blanco, Amaia Urra, Lorena Álvarez, Quim Pujol, Idoia Zabaleta & Ibon Salvador & Mónica Real, Bárbara Sánchez & Jaime Conde-Salazar, Óscar Bueno & Itxaso Corral, Itsaso Iribarren & Germán de la Riva, Nilo Gallego & Pelayo Arrizabalaga and Isaak Erdoiza.
It’ll be the summer so it will probably be hot, but not too hot. We'll head up to the rooftop on the fourth floor, by stairs or in the lift. There'll be people we know and others we don't. Things will kick off at half past eight in the evening, when the sun is just about to set and it’s starting to get a bit cooler. We'll arrive by day and leave by night. And there will be one or more people doing things, singing, dancing, talking, playing an instrument, telling us things, changing, moving… We'll sit down and enjoy ourselves for a while on the roof watching and listening to things that don't usually happen on a roof.
Aimless movement has led me to walk for an hour and a half through the streets of Madrid to see a paint mark on a bank building, to travel another body with my hands, to run for two hours in the same room, to feel my heartbeats like the start of the blood’s journey, to think of my grandmother Carmen, to cross fields in Alava looking at the shoots of wheat, the yellow flowers, the stones and the footprints of the roe deer.
