For exactly 2666 seconds, three dancers move like video game figures in a strict choreographic system of ever new motion algorithms. Driven by pulsating electronic music and a bodiless voice, the players learn new abilities, level by level, to defend themselves against violent attacks. The goal of the game: simply to survive. Based on the eponymous novel by Roberto Bolaño, Yolanda Morales in ›2666‹ addresses the structural violence that women and queers are confronted with in public space and envisions empowerment against the patriarchal structures that enable this.
Yolanda Morales is a choreographer, dancer and performer. She studied contemporary dance at the University of Puebla/Mexico and did her master’s in performance studies at the University of Hamburg. In her choreographies, she deals with fictional bodies in utopian and dystopian spaces that are intertwined with current political and societal realities. www.yolandamorales.net
