‘PASSAR EL CORRENT’ / ⧖7"
The Catalan expression “passar la corrent”, is used when static electricity causes a sort of electrocution when you touch somebody. You feel that with a little handshake with another person, your body reacts as if you would be touching a socket. That is because when two bodies come into close physical contact, there is a possibility of free electron transfer between them. One gives electrons to the other, thereby establishing quite an attractiveness. The consumed energy reappears in the form of an increase in electrical voltage between the two surfaces.
In this piece, we have two bodies sending information to each other as if these electric body reactions were happening. We mix the naturality of our bodies with external electronic devices, as electricity is something human that can always be there when we touch other bodies. Therefore, the object that communicates us is also completing our movement, our dance, our singing.
Singing and dancing share the same instrument, the body, so, what is the difference between singing and dancing? Is this singing that becomes dance? Is that voice or movement?
One body puts the voice, but behind there is another body that defines how we listen to this voice, so, which one is singing? One body is moving because the other makes it move, so which one is dancing? Who is being the artist, the one that shines or the one behind? What would happen if we switch roles? Can we be the other?
