Synopsis

“When you are on top of a building, it could be that the desire to jump off crosses your mind for a second. Or jumping onto the tracks right before a high-speed train comes along. That second in which, suddenly, you think about grabbing someone else’s hand; that idea of what it would be like to touch their face. Those seconds which are quite scary. Moments full of vertigo”.

Suddenly III is based on all those small impulses that paralyse us for a few seconds. These ideas which cross our minds in reality make us aware that we may be in danger. It is a form that the brain uses in order to remind us that we should be careful. Yet what would happen if I decided to follow that impulse? What would happen if I jumped? What would happen if I shot? What would happen if I kissed him or her?

The work reflects what happens when we take a risk and we give in to those impulses. Sometimes such craziness keeps us alive and we want to jump blindly into the unknown instead of staying in an absurd equilibrium that stifles us. Because we don’t always prefer the devil we know to the devil we don’t know.

With a physical language and a dynamic, energetic type of movement, Suddenly III is a visual work, full of images, whose main aim is that all these danced photographs stick in the eye of the spectator.

Suddenly III is a 50-minute solo piece in which the dancer travels through different scenes in which he comes into contact with different objects of desire, like a pistol, a cactus and another person. Alongside the music, the lighting and costumes (ingredients just as important as the very choreography), OSA+MUJIKA seeks to invite the spectator to travel through that world in which we pay attention to that inner voice which invites us to take a risk.

Company

OSA+MUJIKA was founded in 2017 out of the artistic encounter between Jaiotz Osa and Xabier Mujika. It is the result of two creative worlds, dance and scenography/costumes. Jaiotz is a dancer and choreographer and Xabier Mujika is a costume designer and scenographer. Between the two of them, they create a team whose objective is to narrate visual stories; the aim is to create all those images going round in their heads, give them form and meaning, and carry them out at the level of both movement and in audio-visual form.
The OSA+MUJIKA union is the result of the need to satisfy their curiosity about dance and the visual arts.

Their first piece, Suddenly, a 13-minute solo created for non-conventional spaces, with the help of the Mikel Laboa Chair at the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU) and Sortutakoak10 at Gipuzkoako Dantzagunea, was selected by the Red AcieloAbierto 2017 and danced at both national and international festivals. And it is the foundation on which they constructed Suddenly lll, a 50-minute piece selected in the Danza a Escena 2019 catalogue.
