Ayelen Parolin invites us to a form of contemporary ritual accompanied by original piano music. Her piece is based on repetition and endurance, around the leitmotiv of a triangle and its infinite variations. An obsessive, machine-like trio invokes the modern-day imperatives of effectiveness and profitability, all the while assuming the contradiction that consists in revealing the essential strength of the soul. The choreographer aims to ‘not only harness a mathematical construction of movement, but to channel the dancers in geometrical gestural sequences that are both precise and complex, rising in an oscillation between canon and unison. She stretches them to their limits, to discover what may occur in that space...’
Ayelen Parolin (Buenos Aires, 1976) is a choreographer and dancer. She studied at the Buenos Aires National Dance Conservatory and the San Martin Theatre. She has been living and working in Brussels since 2000. After performing for many choreographers, Ayelen Parolin now focuses on her personal work. 25.06.76 is an exploration of her autobiography; Troupeau/Rebaño (Herd) sees her facing the animal asleep within each of us; while SMS and Love questions femininity. In 2005, she was offered a residency with Pépinières Européennes pour Jeunes Artistes, which supports young artists in Europe. In 2016 she was awarded a choreography prize from the SACD (French Society of Dramatic Authors and Composers) and a Fellowship from the Pina Bausch Foundation.
