Brenda Angiel Bio
Since 1994 I have been developing a line of technical research and choreographic composition that occurs in another "nature", which I call aerial dance. Aerial dance composes a lexicon without departing from the laws of the language of dance, interpellated the processes of perception of the spectator from a space illusion that allows him to transcend his static vision, generating a new point of view. At the same time, it reshapes the use of scenic space by discovering sectors of the "Italian" stage rarely exploited.
In aerial dance there is a process of reformulation of the choreographic decisions (time, space, order and nature of the movements, as well as the interpretative technique). The technical resource used to build this goal is achieved through the suspension of the dancers by means of ropes (static and elastic) and harnesses.
