The Death at The Club is a piece for a single performer that, through the repetition of a movement pattern, explores the resistance of the body on the dance floor and the impact of electronic music on specific collectives of young people. In parallel, the work exposes the dark side of youth individualism in contemporary society.
Candela Capitán (Seville, 1996) is a choreographer, dancer and performance artist living in Barcelona. She oscillates between worlds and moves permanently in a gray zone between the popular and the subcultural, stage and fashion, performance and dance. Her personal work explores the activation and deactivation of social ties, positioning the body in relation to others, to objects and collective imagery. Her projects tackle the subjects of new forms of communication technology, relationships that blur the lines between artistic disciplines, as well as intergenerational impact and its consequences. These serve as vehicles of creation for dreamlike spaces and parallel realities manifesting in the form of choreography, installations, and performances that invite the viewer to engage directly with the tension, delight, and delirium therein.
Capitán mostly uses the language of performance to study the limits of dance, and the presence of the body on stage intersected by feminine sexuality and voyeurism. Her work has evolved via different mediums (live action performances, installations, and in the audio-visual field) and instruments (via virtual or live platforms) with the objective of finding different channels of interconnection with the public, and questioning artistic disciplines and their potential.
