Tabakalera taulara : mis aleatorias - looking for Pepe

Tabakalera taulara : mis aleatorias - looking for Pepe

Every Thursday this summer, always at half past eight in the afternoon, the rooftop terrace of Tabakalera will again host a selection of work linked to live performance arts. From 6 July until 31 August we will be able to enjoy different proposals that combine sound, the body, movement, choreography and language.

Maia Villot has prepared a selection of works by Rodrigo Cuevas, Maite Arroitajauregi (Mursego), Jorge Dutor and Guillem Mont de Palol, Idurre Azkue and Joseba Irazoki, Hipólito Patón and Vicente Arlandis, Jaume Ferrete, Beatriz Setién and Lisa Nogara, Luciana Chieregati and Ibon Salvador (Colectivo Qualquer) and Nazario Diaz.


Thursday, Thursday, Thursday,
many, many, many Thursdays,
summer Thursdays,
every Thursday in July, every Thursday in August
… up on the fourth floor, up on the rooftop terrace,
under the open sky, when it's still daytime, when it's not yet night-time,
during that in-between where we know how we'll start but not how we'll end.
Something every Thursday.
In each thing some bodies.
Bodies dancing, bodies singing, making sound, vibrating, talking, moving, travelling.
Dancing bodies.
And Frankenstein's wife, the picturesque agitator, Margaret Thatcher, Beyoncé, the human microphone, dancing for the sake of dancing, voices, words, watercolours, velvet, tribute songs, choreographies, actions and invocations, laughter…
All unleashed upwards, without a ceiling to stop them.

Maia Villot


Looking for Pepe is a research process that focuses on the figure of the artist from Cordoba Pepe Espaliú (1955-1993), and seeks to be deployed through a series of pieces that address matters such as the body, language or territory.

Based on the question What would Pepe do (now) if he had my body? I start a game of variation and imagination, skimming over Pepe’s work, and I try to reveal the actions generated by my own body. Intuitive actions, apparently disconnected, which make a reference to Pepe, or not.

Mis aleatorias is a selection of these actions related to Looking for Pepe in Tabakalera Taulara. An invocation of what is yet to come.
