“La Societat Doctor Alonso somos Sofía Asencio y Tomàs Aragay.
Nos interesa situar algo fuera de su lugar, ámbito o espacio propio, para indagar en cómo este desplazamiento modifica el lenguaje tanto en su gramática constitutiva como en la lectura que un observador puede hacer: desplazar para desvelar algo.
Este poema tiene que ver con nuestra manera de ver las cosas.
Gracias Juan! “
Para venir a gustarlo todo
no quieras tener gusto en nada.
Para venir a saberlo todo
no quieras saber algo en nada.
Para venir a poseerlo todo
no quieras poseer algo en nada.
Para venir a serlo todo
no quieras ser algo en nada.
Para venir a lo que gustas
has de ir por donde no gustas.
Para venir a lo que no sabes
has de ir por donde no sabes.
Para venir a poseer lo que no posees
has de ir por donde no posees.
Para venir a lo que no eres
has de ir por donde no eres.
(Fragmento de Monte de Perfección de Juan de la Cruz)

Shall we dig up a word? This is precisely the suggestion of the members of this company. They are revisiting a concept based on “El desenterrador” (The undergravedigger), a performing arts experience that investigates what they themselves call the corporology of words, that is, the ability of words to generate a world that is ethical, a political system and a specific social order from the moment in which specific words designate (and even create) a reality.

Words and the physical responses to these words worked on by the body are the basis of this show, which revolves around the acts of violence that are part of the history and of the present day. A series of workshops were the first step in putting together the piece. Now it is the turn of the spectacle to unearth and display conflicts that have been hidden by the official line, in the name of a supposed political and social stability.

This is a show that speaks of violence and disappearances, but especially the silent ones that, like invisible parasites, nest in our bodies from generation to generation.
