Info

What is transa?

How can we access space in which movement is self-generated  and the so-called ‘identity’ is lost in the wasteland of what is generic and impersonal?

How can we become a collective organism, a permeable togetherness?

Is it possible that the Other and everything around become a sensible extension of what we are?

How can we create a non-performative space? Be nobody.

How would it be if we became the space between us?

How can we transform the dance space into a space that opens the infinite possibilities of becoming?

Techno Trans aBody Beats(TTBB) aism to extend the ecstatic state of the body that abandoned its identity, ideology and language, a body that change the cultural imprinted image, a body that dance in an immediate world experience, a body that is a silent witness of delimitations and differences fading away.

TTBB united different subjectivities in the collective rhythm, one which reverberates and gives form to the practice of solidarity in a symbolic space and time, which exceeds the race, class and ideology differences.

TTBB choreographically researches and experiments dance in the clubbing and electronic music festivals’ culture. TTBB brings the electronic music phenomenon and that of adjacent body practices in the conceptual space of theater, using contemporary dance means and instruments.

TTBB approaches techno dance as a practice of dissolution and dispersion, of non-representation, of empathy and desubjectification. Techno Transa copies the mechanics of salivation. Do the dance of the heart, of the chest, of the feet, of the hands and answer the music without contemplation or respect.
