This piece doesn’t tell you about my father’s death. But it does take it. It takes me following the path of the death of a man I loved to extremes of pain and love that I don’t even understand myself. That no one knows, Dad. Ningú morirà després de mi is a performance piece resulting from the collaboration between an architect and a choreographer where life is given to an other world, where we consider perplextity and our relationship to the strange. By bringing together elements that aren’t usually seen in combination, we unfold a landscape of cohabitations and affects, where bodies and objects relearn how to relate to each other.
Julia Irango and Jorge Nieto come from the fields of dance and architecture. They began working together in Valencia in 2020, developing work based on experimentation with sound, objects and choreography. In their work they provoke conversations between elements that don’t share a common language, riding the friendly weirdness. How to get inefficient and screechy machinery working for you? This curiosity is the basis for the cross-disciplinary and multiformat character of their pieces. Since 2020, these are Ningú morirà després de mi and lecture performance Dents i perles, both of which have received support from and been shown at institutions such as Centro Párraga, La Caldera and IVAM.
