Eruptions 2024

The eruptions serve as narrative threads weaving through the festival’s programme. These are often ideas that spontaneously arise, without being sought out. They grow more intense as the participating creators share the core of their artistic projects with us. Frequently, it’s a single word that reverberates, concealed within diverse formats or aesthetics, yet it transports us to a realm of shared inquiry and exploration.

 

GEOPOETICS


Beneath this evocative term embraced by many of this year’s creators lies a realm where proposals intertwine, delving into both the physical and emotional spheres of our planet, its landscapes, what lies above, below, and the intricate dance of what we tread upon.
Lorna Rees and Activate Performing Arts will immerse us in the sounds of shifting tectonic plates, while Quim Girón and Moon Ribas will evoke the sensations of earthquakes. CiRcoLando will delve into the telluric dimension of volcanoes, Trickster-p will invite us to play with and against nature, while Bigert & Bergström will show us how to defy a tornado. Maria Camila Sanjinés' maps will connect us with memories and emotions, and Ariadna Rodriguez and Iñaki Alvarez / nyamnyam will prompt us to reflect on place and landscape.
Topophilias, emotional cartographies and situated narratives converge to shape our perspective and relationship with place, weaving them, whether in abundance or in scarcity, into the fabric of our personal and collective identities.

CRAFTS / TECHNOLOGIES


At Sismògraf 2024, an array of artisanal technological proposals awaits discovery. Among them, Albert Coma beckons us to wander amidst discarded objects that he has repurposed, while Kònik Thtr presents a spectacle intertwined with a virtual reality game exploring the waste we leave behind. Some pieces will showcase the choreographic movement of hands crafting a Cove (Última Vèrtebra) with ancient wisdom, while others will demonstrate the construction of Una Illa (Agrupación Señor Serrano) with the aid of artificial intelligence. There will also be a guided audio tour exploring El dia que va morir l’últim panda, as well as an artistic documentary portraying an attempt to thwart a tornado (The Weather War).
Creators delve into the essence of objects, probing their uses in recent or distant pasts, exploring ancestral memories, all while presenting innovative stagings crafted with innovative technologies.
