The new Diabla

It’s been more than a year since Energinmotion was in Paris performing the short piece Doña Diabla during the second edition of MIMESIS at the IVT (International Visual Theatre). The great news is that in October 2013 we have re-started our research, and since then we have been looking at ways of working on a new full-length version for 2014.  Much has happened in this year and somehow this work can not ignore such events: the world-wide efforts to free the Pussy Riot band members (which still continues); in Brazil, Marco Feliciano from the party PSC (Social Christian Party) proposes to the Congress a law that would link women to their sexual abusers to the rest of their lives (thankfully there are still people with brains and that was not approved); also in Brazil the day after pill is legalised days after the Pope visits the country, and so is the abortion through a law that has a quite flexible frame (thank you Dilma); same-sex marriage has been approved in France, Brazil, Uruguay, New Zealand, some North American states, and England & Wales; Germany now offers a third gender option in birth certificates; more news emerge from women still being imprisoned around the world and living as sex slaves, captors being arrested and victims speaking out loud, such as those from the Ariel Castro case; in England a transsexual police officer seeks compensation in court for being harassed by colleagues and aims to highlight the way transgender people are treated. We have also seen more and more people protesting against inequality in social network sites. A few years ago one would think that would be shouting at nobody. Today, more and more people are joining in. We have seen walls filled out with petitions to be signed and texts expressing discontent with the current order of the world. Hopefully our piece will be able to tackle a few of those subjects and somehow engage our audience into further discussion. We will keep you posted.

HAPPY 2013!!!!!!

Energinmotion welcomes 2013 with a video from the last edition of MIMESIS, which took place in Paris in November 2012. If you missed the live performances, you can at least see short clips from all companies involved. We have plans for developing our Doña Diabla, as well as other projects in this new exciting year so please watch this space. For now, we would like to wish you all a wonderful year full of new adventures!

The first half of 2012 and a TEASER!

Energinmotion is now packing for summer holidays but we will be back on track in late August for new adventures and great new projects. The past 6 months have been intense and now it’s the time to evaluate the work to keep moving forward. 

Firstly, a new piece (Maria-Olga) was created for the I MIMESIS, a platform for new work in mime, physical theatre and the many arts that make use of movement and physical expression. And we will be back to the second edition of the event in November. For more details, please find MIMESIS on Facebook:

Secondly, the first half of the 2012 marks the opening of our feature show WHERE THE NIGHTS ARE BLUE AND ELECTRIC, performed twice at the Resistance Gallery in London. We would like to thank everyone involved in this production and also all of those who helped us to make this happen. The list is long, and always open to additions: Garry Vanderhorne, Izaskun Gonzalez, Andres Velasquez & the Pleasance Theatre, Pablo Baz & the Oval House Theatre, Aaron Lamont, Siobhan Bradshaw, Alberto Blanco, Lorea Hernandez, White Roses, Ni Ni, Maria Rita Salvi, Rosa Postlethwaite, Simon McCabe, Billy Walsh, Marian Mlynarczyk, Mentxu Amigo, Ilana Gorban, Thais Mennsitieri, Daiana Matias, Warwick Hewson, Telea Juna, Natasha Lohan, Mari Frogner, Rachel Delisser and Sam Gold. 

Thirdly, pictures of our show were displayed on billboard in the US. Nights were blue and electric far away from home. Thank you Siobhan Bradshaw for making this happen. Follow the link to check the photos out:

Join Energinmotion on their journey to define what love is…

In El Paraiso Bar, a place in the middle of the Mexican desert where the nights are blue and electric, a man and a woman perform a cabaret show for the local (and very small) population. Away from the stage the woman dreams about a man she has never met, and the man hides his loneliness from the world. One day a stranger comes in and brings with him the possibility of changing their lives. Idealised love, jealousy and desire, are just a few of the themes in this show that searches for an answer to the question: how can we define love?

Let’s talk about LOVE – again!!!

Energinmotion is currently preparing a second round of performances at the Resistance Gallery. ‘WHERE THE NIGHTS ARE BLUE AND ELECTRIC’ will be at the venue for two nights only: 5th and 6th July. We are currently working on a promotional video and also starting to make new adjustments to the piece. For now, we leave you with some photos from the previous performances at the Gallery in April this year. Check out the beautiful lighting design by Andres Velasquez, one of our greatest collaborators. Andres is also a mime artist, trained at the International School of Corporeal Mime where he is now a teaching assistant and a member of the Theatre de L’Ange Fou. He jumped into the technical world by chance 5 years ago and since has worked as a technician for numerous productions and events both in London and the Edinburgh Fringe. As a lighting designer credits include Like a Movie (Pleasance Theatre, Shelford Place), Kram  (Siobhan Davies Studios), Moon River (Pleasance Theatre), and he’s being associate designer for Alice (Courtyard Theatre), Mr Sir (Pleasance Theatre), The Trial of Mr Punch (Hoxton Hall), and Invisible Ensemble (Pleasance Theatre).

See you there!!!

Less than a week to go!!!!!!!!!!!

Two years ago I felt love had abandoned me. How dramatic does that sound? Truth is, it was. Life without love is gray. It’s not blue and it’s far from being electric. At that time I questioned myself a lot in an attempt to understand why I didn’t deserve love. My questioning was then united to someone else’s. My much loved colleague Antonio Blanco also felt the need to ask himself what love actually is. It’s been a long journey since that morning 2010 in which we sat down in a cafe in Soho for a few hours to discuss what we would like to talk about. And we decided to talk about love. For me, that was a very difficult decision to make. I was actually about to face a big monster. Believe me, love didn’t look beautiful at that time. It looked like a very ugly thing. Time heals, or at least tries to heal. ‘Where the Nights are Blue and Electric’ went through a long series of transformations. We went through difficult times, doors closed in front of us, but others opened. We are now arriving to our first final draft of the show. My search for understanding love still continues. I still look at it with a suspicious look but I now try to find my courage to face it. Thanks to art, thanks to friends and thanks to life itself.

Please come to see our work at the Resistance Gallery on the 26th and 27th April at 8pm. Follow this link to buy tickets in advance: http://www.wegottickets.com/f/4303

Introducing Mr Cunnington

It is our pleasure to introduce you John Andrew Cunnington. He will be performing with us in our production WHERE THE NIGHTS ARE BLUE AND ELECTRIC, and we are very happy to have him joining out team. John is from the small village off Addulthorpe, in Lincolnshire. He is a graduate from the East 15 Acting School where he trained in physical theatre for 3 years. Upon completing this course he has already managed to work with many well-established physical theatre companies, such as Frantic Assembly and ThickSkin. Not only he is interested in working professionally, but  he also creates his own work in which he focuses more in movement and interpretation rather than using a script. John is a very talented performer and his participation in our show promises to be spectacular. Keep an eye on him as not only he is working with us, but he is also working very closely with the company Fools Play Collective.
