Direction and choreography Alicia Soto
La Petite Voiture 2.0 is a roaming technology and dance performance, breaking the fourth wall, with which the public constantly interacts. Spectators must follow some instructions to be able to enjoy both the video creation embodied in the 4 windows of the pram, and the live interpretation of the choreographies of the Countess and the chauffeur/gentleman.
La Petite Voiture 2.0 is a new production of the successful and revolutionary 2011 Alicia Soto-Hojarasca company piece La Petite Voiture. La Comtesse. The new version, directed and choreographed by Alicia Soto, has undergone a formal review. Julian Gómez Pabón, a break dancer, who shares the scene with the dancer Paloma Calderón (who takes over from Alicia) is replacing the actor who gave life to the 'gentleman'. It also presents conceptual changes, since criticism of patriarchy and the stigmatization of women are more present, through aspects such as money, glamor and beauty.
La Petite Voiture 2.0 introduces us to the Countess and the Gentleman. The second represents glamour, the superficial world that we all love and desire at some point. The Countess lives hooked on him and what he represents and when she finds herself trapped every day she tries to escape, to get rid of what binds her. However, it is not easy to break the chains when the brightness of everything around you blinds you.
The myth of Sisyphus serves as an inspiration to show a society in which everything is repeated continuously and desperately. In addition, the show raises different questions: what is really the price of money? How are we socially conditioned? Do we all hide a little voyeur inside?; as well as a reflection on different topics: love, confinement and claustrophobia, social ties or the idea of God.
Finally, the pram is one more character in this story, representing the inner world of the Countess that we can discover through her windows and, on the other hand, being her prison and anchor to the world of the Gentleman.
