Original project by Corpusmedio (Adele Fournet and Moyra Silva),  with co-production support of Centro Cultural de España in Lima. “Limas Utópicas” is a site-specific movement film. The film explores our particular interpretation of “utopia” as a starting point and trigger to defy with movements Lima city’s status quo.

Fifteen Limeñxs– representing a wide variety of ages, occupations and socio-cultural backgrounds–express their visions of utopia using their bodies and group compositions in this site-specific video dance piece.  This video is the final product of a free four-week movement workshop for non-dancers offered at the Cultural Center of Spain in Lima, Peru, led by the multimedia creative duo CorpusMedio (Adele Fournet and Moyra Silva).  Working collectively, we explored how to defy, in small and varied ways, different aspects of the urban status quo in Lima– a city slowly overcoming and redefining a traumatic past with terrorism and public spaces. The video features collective movement and sound compositions created by Fournet and Silva in collaboration with the fifteen workshop participants.

La película explora nuestra interpretación particular de “utopía” como punto de partida y disparador para desafiar a través del movimiento, el status quo de la ciudad de Lima

Quince Limeñxs, que representan una gran variedad de edades, ocupaciones y antecedentes socioculturales, expresan sus visiones de la utopía utilizando sus cuerpos y composiciones grupales en esta pieza de video danza específica para el sitio. Este video es el producto final de un taller de movimiento gratuito de cuatro semanas para no bailarines ofrecido en el Centro Cultural de España en Lima, Perú, dirigido por el dúo creativo multimedia CorpusMedio (Adele Fournet y Moyra Silva). Trabajando colectivamente, exploramos cómo desafiar, de formas pequeñas y variadas, diferentes aspectos del statu quo urbano en Lima, una ciudad que supera y redefine lentamente un pasado traumático con el terrorismo y los espacios públicos. El video presenta movimientos colectivos y composiciones de sonido creadas por Fournet y Silva en colaboración con los quince participantes del taller.
