The performer Paula Quintana asks the audience if there is anyone called Paula Quintana present; she has a present for her that she must deliver. Nothing happens, “if I have to keep waiting, I’ll wait, because I always do what I have to do, and I do it the way it is supposed to be done, getting up, doing the chores, going to bed, and enjoying myself – a lot!… one day, another day and another… I ́m a positive woman, committed too, and competitive, hardworking, responsible, well-mannered, daughter to my mother, daughter to my father, sister top my sister, look what happy I am, watch me laugh, look at me, and many other things… I do not want to be an astronaut; I don’t; that is not for me.”
Behind the laughter and the absurdity of the events, the body dances and tells that, maybe there is something hiding, something latent.
Under this huge man ́s mountain made by experiences upon experiences… we have maybe forgotten just the thing that is deep inside everyone’s soul and we all want to get to know.
It is for any individual, and inside the body of anyone. The body and the way it uses contemporary dance, flamenco, physical theatre, and words. All are they juxtaposed, subordinate and complementing each other to communicate viscerally.
