The Meeting of Alicia Soto and Post Theater

During the on-going, constant investigation project of Alicia Soto as a choreographer and dancer in the world of the scenic arts (and interested especially in the multimedia and its extensive possibilities in the artistic field) she discovered the Post Theater Company in 2007 giving a workshop in the city of Berlin where this multifaceted company has its operational base. The company is composed of Hiroko Tanahashi and Max Scheduler, both of them investigators, creators and producers of their own projects, in the same way as Alicia Soto and her company, Hojarasca.

At this meeting the mutual empathy and connection, both human and professional, gave rise to a second encounter: this time in collaboration where they decided to carry out a joint work laboratory, coinciding with the presentation of Post Theater in the Salamanca Arts Festival of two performances which merged with great beauty and harmony the world of dance and the multimedia: “Pervillion” and “skinSITEs”.

What we present now is version #13 of skinSITEs. Had its premiere in “Mercat de les Flors” in Barcelona.
