During the two-week residency in Darmstadt, Snorkel Rabbit will work on the piece "100 Years". A work-in-progress showing will take place on 7.5.2022 at the Ballettsaal in Darmstadt.
"100 Years" will be a new evening production by Snorkel Rabbit Company created by artistic directors Alba Castillo and Bryan Arias. Together they will combine their many years of contemporary dance and choreography experience. Bringing together a unique evening work inspired by the novel "One Hundred Years of solitude" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Through a contemporary perspective, the work visualizes abstract narratives of Power, Conflict, Cynicism, and Change. Referencing currentand past world events to comment on the repetition of history. While creating aworld where fiction becomes forms of fact, and where facts become uncertain. The evening explores our cognitive development through moments of pleasure and conflict, and brings attention to the fragility of our minds through the continues adaptation of aging and time.
