‘Johnny Horne’

Is a work that touches the Man’s smallness in the middle of the immensity, in the middle of the infinite possibilities of this world. It is solitude. It is an attempt to communicate and searching for answers that never come. It’s the need/impossibility to understand the world and make the world understand “you”. It’s the “pre” and “post” of the sonority. The before, the between and the after of the expression.

Using limits, impotence and frustration as generators of energy and starting points towards states. Thinking What a body and a voice are and what happens in them before they can articulate movements or words.

Asking what makes people unable to communicate normally? What are the facts that block our body and voice and don’t allow us to express ourselves freely.

How can we ensure that our education, culture, society and religion don’t influence any more our expressive and communicative barriers?

This performative/dance work has another layer that I am explaining below:

“Johnny Horne” is a solo creation in process emerged in the context of PEPCC 2015/16 (Forum Dança), Lisbon.

It has been assisted for now by Loic Touze, Vania Rovisco, Miguel Pereira, Paula Caspão and Britta Pudelko among others. But is in a new phase of restructuring and opening up new visions of inclusion of other elements (other artists, choreographic elements, etc.).

“So for me the project is at a new beginning where time becomes relative regarding to the date and place of premiere. It is in a moment of focus more in the process so as not to lose it due to the idea of show, as it happened before.”

“There is an interest for me in the process of understanding the questions explained in the previous short description of the project, and looking for answers through work/training and physical and vocal research. A process of removing layers and negations to find essences (authentic and natural movements and sounds), to work with them in the composition and transmission through performance or performative presence. It is a process in which working with the subconscious can become very important.”

Movement Labs: 

A warming up focussed on the physical and voice practice Luis uses as a base in  ‘Johnny Horne’ . It will be lead according to the necessities of the rehearsal  of that day and the interest of the participants.

Klein technique, yoga, contemporary dance and traditional songs of different peoples of the world are part of the easy going training that searches to awake the body and place it in a different state of presence to work in creation and composition.
