LOS DESAPARECIDOS – Vom Erdboden verschluckt

Augusto Jaramillo & Maura Morales

The dance solo LOS DESAPARECIDOS is a physical confrontation with the consequences of a crime committed in Latin America for decades: the enforced disappearance. To this day, thousands of victims have disappeared from the face of the earth. Their fates smoulder as traumatic wounds in family and social structures. This is the case in Cuba and Colombia, the countries of origin of the multi-award-winning choreographer Maura Morales and the dancer/actor Augusto Jaramillo-Pineda, who are devoting their first artistic collaboration to this common theme – and at the same time exploring its universal dimension: How does an eternal void affect life? What gives strength when every hope feeds new despair and vice versa? To specially created electronic music by the established dance theatre composer Michio Woirgardt, the solo misses the links between trauma and violence as well as the potentials of compassion and community.
