In Voices (working title), I am using the sound of multiple voices in different circumstances as a soundscape. In the current version of the work, the movement is improvised and it follows the rhythm of the soundscape. I am hoping the dramaturgy, as the representation of the dramatic content in the piece, will be created by the relationship between the sound and the movement over the literal meaning of the words.

Mateo Galindo Torres is a dancer/choreographer, with side projects in film, photography and music editing. He has worked in Colombia, USA, Cuba, Panama and Canada, and is currently the artistic advisor of Form Contemporary Dance Theatre. Torres’ work is often politically charged, inspired by social subject matters, and fuses his eclectic movement background.

Mateo will be performing Voices (working title) at Seasonal Activities, v. i.
