SYNOPSIS

Over the course of the history of humanity, sexuality, gender and its expression have been intertwined, revealing their breadth and deep complexity. We are part of a biodiversity where the multitude of colours, shapes and ways of inhabiting that make up the beauty of being alive, where each being has potential freedom to express their essence as a basic principle of being part of this planet. 



However, this diversity of bodies, sexualities and ways of living have historically been annihilated by our patriarchal roots, generating structural violence, which trans people have suffered to a predominant extent. A system that controls bodies and nature has been built for progress, reproduction and capitalist exploitation, annulling subjectivities, establishing rigid binaries, homogenizing affections and erasing people who exist outside of normative canons.




SENSUAL TEXION is an innovative multidisciplinary and immersive experience that revolves around dance, light art, fashion, drag and electronic music. It stars 3 trans performers from different ‘backgrounds’, a live DJ and a fiery stage set. We break free from the traditional concept of the passive audience to give way to an experimentation of participant observers included in the show as performative agents.

With this work we put the focus on empowerment, healing and the celebration of the honest and vulnerable connection with our own bodies in constant transformation. We recreate an impactful rite through pleasure, ‘groove’ and internal fire.
A sensual revolution of high-frequency.

AWARDS

PRESS

“Los valencianos de la atractiva compañía EYAS Dance Project (Carlos González y Seth Buckley ) estrenaron la potentísima ‘SENSUAL TEXION’. La iluminación penetrante de Manuel Conde da vida a la diversidad de cuerpos y sexualidades, introduciéndonos en una fiesta nocturna ceremonial con la danza contemporánea, bailes urbanos o el vogue como cuestionamiento de la mentalidad establecida. Logran escenas de enorme belleza, como la bola con los cruces de rayos blancos”

​”Merce Matus, Raisha Cosima, Dylan Aranda González realizan un trabajo fascinante, así como Itxa Sai manejando la música creada por sí misme, junto a otros artistas. Entre ellos, Merce Matus, caracterizada con ciertos parecidos a los elfos de ‘El Señor de los Anillos’, esos seres hermosos, sabios y que ven perfectamente en la oscuridad, considerados casi andróginos y metrosexuales. Sencillamente, su actuación es una de las mejores que se han visto en los escenarios últimamente”

​”No olvidemos el excelente trabajo de vestuario de JASANZO (Javier Muñoz) y Adrián Casani: difícil y muy logrado sobre todo por su carácter descriptivo y por su disposición a la combinación con la iluminación”

Jose Vicente Peiró (LAS PROVINCIAS)
