Thanks to our collaboration with Dantzagunea and within the framework of Cruceiros Paraíso 2023, Ana Beatriz Pérez will approach this space for creation in Errentería to begin working on a new stage proposal titled "Anfibia."
"Everything begins by imagining, imagining a blank space that gradually comes to life or gains meaning, transforming into a body, into action, into struggle, into panting, into stillness. An immersive space to breathe within, to seek calm, the tranquility that follows the outburst, the nerves. And in this exercise of imagination, a name appears, Anfibia, a name that leads me towards something yet to be deciphered but suggests adaptability. The ability to find oneself in various environments. On land or in sea, in the conscious and the unconscious, in fiction and in reality.
With the interest of delving into this amphibious concept, I will commence this first stage of work, with the starting point being breathing and its different manifestations. Conducting an exercise of observation and awareness of the act of breathing."
