Amanda Romero

Own Works


16. October 2020 – tanzhaus nrw, Düsseldorf

Concept and choreography: .Dencuentro

Collective members: Constanza Ruiz Campusano, Greta Salgado and Amanda Romero.

The performers* prepare. Tensions, distance and attraction grow. For a short moment, they all appear to hover, until their bodies are suddenly hurled onto each other and they clash with vehemence. A muffled smack. The bodies entangle until they disengage again, before the next encounter starts mounting. 

.Dencuentro, confront and interweave academic dance with the traditional form of expression in “Tinku”, a Bolivian battle ritual. “SINP’A” is a piece of encounters and confrontation. The encounter during which the women braid each other’s hair, the meeting in pugilism, the encounter between the dancers* with the music and the encounter of bodies floating into each other. “SINP’A” acts in the tension between co-operation and the resistance of different identities and opens the physical confrontation as another option to celebrate life.Which is a cultural concept that is present in many practices and believes of the andean cosmovision.
