About her current research on reciprocity*
From the intuition that reciprocity would be a feminist and decolonial way of relating, Amparo explore which implications this has in the choreographic field: which physicalities makes possible, which relationship with the audience, between human and more-than-human entities in the performatic space.
Her work is triggered by her experience of activism in Buenos Aires, the contact with the cosmology of her Mapuche ancestors, her understanding of choreography as a relational practice, her studies of fascia and philosophy, her condition of migrant and the successive processes of identification, des-identification and ambiguation that it produces.
She is wondering how to create the choreographic conditions to make possible the perception and unfolding of other human and more-than-human existences: how to perceive the invisible, the silenced, the buried ones...
* “Exploring Reciprocity” started in 2019 within the program Residenties in Utrecht (NL). It consists in a series of Practices (protocols of reciprocity) through which Amparo invites the people of a community to experience and to create a state of reciprocity through very simple propositions of perception, movement and conversation.
