In the past two months, Constanza Macras has been working remotely and in person with Chilean performers for a complete new version of her shows ALBUM / THE POSE. The show is being produced and having its world premiere as part of the Festival Santiago a Mil 2021. Together with the cast from Santiago and DorkyPark dancer Miki Shoji, she has worked on the performers’ personal history and material, creating a new and unique version of Album/The Pose while continuing to work on the themes of photography, memory and architecture in the unique atmosphere of the GAM in Santiago.
Constanza Macras divides this show into three parts, contrasting both dimensions and through her renowned interdisciplinary work that mixes dance, music and text and video montages. The first is about self-representation in the digital era; an abstract composition of images and GIFs follows, something very much influenced by artists such as Jeff Wall and Gregory Crewdson. The last part involves the composition of an analog image and as much complex narrative as can be transmitted by a single photo.
Santiago a Mil is a 3-week festival that welcomes all approaches and cultures. It’s an invitation to take part in unique events, share unforgettable experiences and to start conversations based on multiple artistic form.
