Rooms, dreams and memories – how we frame ourselves or open doors to new possibilities.
The solo performance Rooms marks the fifth anniversary of Memory Wax. In Rooms, Memory Wax is taking their quiet, cinematic and distinctive expression further to another level. A performance about how we create our own inner and outer rooms because of man’s need for control, in which the body acts like a seismograph of emotions. In a dynamic play between light and darkness, sound and space, the dancer Miguel Azcue evokes a flowing physical and existential meditation on life – a negotiation between our inner and outer unpredictability. Where are the limits between “I” and my surroundings?
In spring 2011, Memory Wax made a tour in Sweden in cooperation with The Touring Circuit Three Venues to Dansstationen in Malmö, Atalante in Gothenburg and Moderna Dans Teatern in Stockholm. In the same year Rooms was presented at Scandinavia House in New York/US and in the House of Sweden in Washington DC/US in collaboration with Music Doc. Rooms also played in the theater Las Carolinas in Havana/Cuba.
Autumn 2013, Memory Wax made a tour in cooperation with Vass-scenkonst som vågar! to four towns/cities in Skåne, with a whole evening containing two solo performances; Still Shivering and Rooms. Both performances elaborate with intimate questions concerning the individual and together they provide a good insight into Memory Wax stagelanguage, their evocative and poetic but also unexpected expressions. The tour began in Simrishamn and then continued to Lund, Landskrona and Kristianstad. Each evening ended with an audience conversation.
Rooms was supported by: Dansstationen, Malmö Culture Committee, Region Skåne, The Arts Council and The Swedish Arts Grants Committee.
Special thanks to Skånes Dansteater for the residency during the creation process.
