VICENTE VÁZQUEZ AND USUE ARRIETA & JORDI GALÍ Session 3 IRREGULAR SECTION: Vicente Vázquez and Usue Arrieta & Jordi Galí

Sold out



Time: 20:30
Length: 30 minutes

“Last summer we used our webcams to record the practices of groups that follow the rules of a same system, moving ‘from top to bottom and bottom to top’ (goitik behera, behetik gora), to organize games in the Basque Country. This logic leads to a chain of nine sequences, where industrial capacities become sensitive worlds, like the misunderstood survivor of a decrepit state. The collection of images reflects on the capture device in a double chain of fragments in movement where radio-controlled flying machines, homebuilt vehicles and recording equipment assemble images of the landscape through their possibilities of movement.”

Vicente Vázquez and Usue Arrieta


Vicente Vázquez (Galicia, 1976) and Usue Arrieta (Basque Country, 1979) have been working together since they met ten years ago at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Cuenca. Together they have developed a multidisciplinary body of work that focuses on exercises aimed at the redefinition of social spaces. They understand their practice as a way of researching and experimenting with the possibilities of collective experience and phenomena. Their work, whether in film sequences, text, slideshows, or using other spatiotemporal devices, attempts to reformulate a present social image.

JORDI GALÍ presents T

Time: 21:00
Length: 35 minutes

The dance in T draws closer to the work of construction, fuses with it, with the gesture of the craftsman, the builder, the sculptor, but remains a dance.

An assembly line has been created to produce the “music” accompanying the show; it contains weights and counterweights that trigger the acoustics of the bicycle wheels, and a great pendulum that makes a small plastic cup “sing”; in short, like a large clock made of miscellaneous pieces that accompany the action and mark out its sequences.

Centre-stage we find beams, stepladders, tyres and pieces of wood. An impossible construction emerges out of the need to adjust the delicate balances. All these objects are the tools of the body that manipulates them while poised on top of this same construction –ultimately achieving a final impossible equilibrium, suspended movement, the right distribution of weight and counterweight.


Jordi Galí trained in contemporary dance at the Institut del Teatre in Barcelona.

He also studied philosophy at the University of Barcelona (UB). He has performed with the company Maguy Marin (Lyon, France), in White Star by Lies Pawels at the Theater Victoria (Gent, Belgium), with Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker’s company Rosas (Brussels, Belgium), Wim Vandekeybus’s company Ultima Vez (Brussels, Belgium) and Emilio Gutiérrez’s company Projecte Gallina (Barcelona).

He won an Honorary Award for the best actor at the Kontakt International Theatre Festival in Torun (Poland), for his role in the piece White Star (2005) and the Best Dancer’s Award at the Madrid Choreographic Competition (1998).

In 2001 he began to produce his own pieces, which include Abscisse, Ciel and T.
