Marques, David

Ressaca is word-for-word, textually and musically literal, counteracting the nature of dance as an autonomous art form. If fiction exists in the spaces between meaning, how can dance survive without reclaiming its independence from music and text? Can dance create its own text while serving another — that of sense? Could this be a text of the senses? In Ressaca, the performers show what they have written based on and with the music; the choreography — dance waiting to be emancipated — says as much about the brutality of individual gestures as it does about the beauty of wanting to be a group.
