“Acusticorporal” is a one-man show that talks about the body, the body as a resonator of everything it perceives. How sounds, rhythms, vibrations and words affect it (in the good sense of the word).
The body itself as a generator of harmony and poly-rhythm, becoming a musical instrument of the environment.
“Acusticorporal” takes as inspiration different traditional dance styles such as African dance from Guinea and Senegal as well as Son Jarocho from Mexico to bring it thus to a contemporary language.
