For 27 years, Alejandro Ahmed and his dance company CENA 11 have been producing pieces that are as intense as they are defiant in their Florianópolis studio in southern Brazil. In March 2020, Cena 11 began working on a new piece entitled Dark Matter, commissioned by Frankfurter Positionen and other co-producers. The COVID-19 pandemic put a temporary end to the collaborative process at the dance studio. Ever since, the members of the company have been using digital platforms to stay in touch artistically. In this proces, the virtual space has become an extension of the body, merging spatial and temporal dimensions as well as presence and absence. Two extraordinary video pieces show a condensed version of Cena 11’s physical and choreographic process over the last few months. They will be presented for the first time at Digital Mousonturm.
