Itxaso Corral "Cuadros coreográficos"

The work of artist Itxaso Corral (b. Bilbao, 1979) calls on an extensive glossary of concepts, media, and practices that explore beyond the bounds of closed definitions, in a gesture that simultaneously expands the scope of possibility of so-called live arts. In her creative space, physiology, language and magic mobilise times and spaces from which to vibrate in interconnection with different organisms, while trying to come closer to the feeling of—not just resolve—her main concern: what does it mean to be alive?

In this podcast, Itxaso Corral shares with us the small rituals that give shape and meaning to her artistic activities: pulsations of life that emerge through performance, dance, singing, and calligraphy as experiential spaces, which are the result of lived experience and long durations, and of the energy that arises from learning and doing with others. The conversation opens a door in space-time to forms of attention and presence, which are conjured by tenderness, listening, empathy, interdependence, and the domestic sphere.
