Olga de Soto will talk about his work of research and creation, which explores the themes of memory and footprint, while it will address the processes of creation that has developed in his last works, and which explores the impact that certain works of performing arts can have in the life of the people. Accompanied by documents of a different nature, the choreographer will talk about the two major axes that are divided into his work, where he studied both physical memory and perceptual memory, linked to the reception or the interpretation of a work. Also, based on the analysis of some of the work he has done during the last decade, Olga will deal with the various problems which I have faced during the various processes, from initial ideas to the performing, plastic forms, documentaries and audiovisual late. Finally, Olga the material memory as the intangible will talk about how much, collected thanks to the work of research and documentation, thanks to the search and collection of existing elements on the one hand and on the other hand, oral transmission they have become matter for the creation, the (re) creation, the reappropriation and recovery or the reactivation of a memory or self-employed.
