Humano caracol (vol. 3 Steve Paxton /vol. 4 Mal Pelo)

Humano caracol presents micropoetic archives. It is a series of documentaries and audiovisual portraits on contemporary creators such as Emine Sevgi Özdamar, Dionisio Cañas, Steve Paxton and the dance company Mal Pelo.

Humano caracol understands a journey to be an itinerary open to experience. The aim is to investigate and conceive of audiovisual documentation in movement, the threshold of opening of the propositions made by these creators. The idea is to develop a document that manages to encompass contexts and trajectories starting from a scenario that opens itself up to performativity. Any reflection on archives must keep in mind that they wish for permanence (static archive), but can also engage in a dialogue with the present, with the piece itself and the reception of this piece (archive in movement).
