Not Anymore

(Not anymore) is a short experimental dance film based on Idea Vilariño’s poem (Uruguay 1951), that explores body poetics to speak out about heartbreak and diversity. While they are being moved by the craving of past coincidences, the dancers establish a dialogue across the impossibility of finding each other. Thus, the dream turns to be the non-place where everything is going to exist: a rehearsal for letting go, a date for no meeting or another version of an already known farewell.

"When the way we were is no longer,
waking up means absence
and therefore
dancing could be
the garden where we’re still true”.

Director Statement

I’m interested as an actor to think myself beyond sexual genre limits. The common places in theatre and dance like man-woman, male dancer-female dancer, base-flyer are schemes of whom I escape of. Assuming through physicality that two equal-size men can fly one over the other and even more, talk about love, it’s what moves me the most about this search. I find in "Not anymore" (Ya No) the urgency for diversity and for giving visibility to the stories I believe are need to be heard.
Juan Ignacio Piasentini

Getting to know Juan Ignacio as an artist and as a person, generated on me a creativity necessity of sharing along the world dialoguing between us. “Not Anymore” is a proof of the dedication and love that this team is capable of offering to the arts. A chance of getting fascinated by the creator génesis (multidisciplinar and political) of the new generations of artists.
