“Where our touch begins, we are.

I am.

You are.

Are we?

It's an occupation of reality, a conquest.

Look for familiar faces.

You hesitate without rubbing and accept, sometimes unsuccessfully.

The inhabited body.

The enigma body.”




The piece EM·NA is based on the idea of vibration as a manipulative element. It's an investigation into "subcutaneous acoustics" through vibration and resulting silence in each other's bodies.

The relationship between interpreters goes through different states: compressing, stretching, changing the rhythm of his own vibration, and all this based on their individual physicality.

The scenic composition of the bodies shows the different states and spaces of the same vibration through contemporary, naked, raw and everyday physicality.

The strong presence of the world and Japanese spirit creates an aesthetic full of significant and blunt details.

The duration of each movement almost resembles that of a thought, purpose or reflection.

The piece therefore seeks to interweave order, chaos, passivity and the echo of the mind projected on the changing body.

A "momentum" about how full and overwhelmed the human mind is and the need for silence.​



EM·NA delves into our animal, instinctive and intuitive reality.


EM·NA  talks about what the body understands. Self-piracy.

Impossible to finish world theatre day better: in a theater watching dance. But that theater is not just any theater: Ensalle theatre of Vigo. A unique space, because it not only exhibits shows but gives them shelter and lighting. And that dance is not just that of the Glovo Collective of Lugo. Premieres EM·NA in Vigo. A piece of delicate and, in turn, powerful dance virtuosity. Intensity contained. Electrifying asceticism. Esther Latorre and Hugo Pereira have a unison that is pure magic. It's as if the difference is specied in conjunction and movement, that way multiplied and mirrored you get a vibration that touches us and catches us. The light of Pedro Fresneda, of the Ensalle, is like a spider weaving a cloth that sways with movement, just like sand that moves the wind or waves on a beach. The explicit vibration, located in different parts of the duo's bodies, rotates the eyes. The movement accumulates, is contained, explodes in different intensities and proportions, flows and reverberates in us without undoing the circumventilege of EM·NA. Wonder piece! Maximum quality!
