Crocodiles and Alligators was created in the wake of Version(s), a research led between September 2010 and November 2011 at Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers, Paris. Version(s) was a research project on how different versions of a show’s beginning might add up to a new show. In a constant back-and-forth between the enunciation of possibilities and their on-stage execution, Cuqui Jerez and lighting designer Gilles Gentner observe how language and space transform each other to produce a new reality. By increasing the number of possible openings of a play that does not develop linearly, they explore what effect these elements have on the audience’s expectations and imagination.

Crocodiles and Alligators is about difference, variation, change, contrast, differentiation, disparity, dissimilarity, distinction, diversity, unlikeness, variety, exception, particularity, peculiarity and singularity. But it is also about performance and choreography; about stage and backstage; about observing and imagining; about stillness and accumulation; about nothingness and fullness; about light and darkness.

Concept by Cuqui Jerez. Created in collaboration with Gilles Gentner and Ismeni Espejel. Collaborator: Amaia Urra. Performed by Gilles Gentner and Ismeni Espejel. Lights by Gilles Gentner. Co-produced by Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers, BRUT Wien and Kunstencentrum BUDA, Kortrijk.

Performed at
Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers, Paris: February 2012
Festival Imagetanz Brut, Viena: March 2012

REFERENCE, Espacios de Paz Project, Venezuela

Petare, La Y 5 de Julio / Caracas [TXP Todo por La Praxis + PGRC + Pico Estudio

The Espacios de Paz (Spaces for Peace) project in  is turning “zones of danger” into “zones of peace” through participatory design in violent areas of the country. Led by Venezuelan firm PICO Estudio, Espacios de Paz was a six-week long workshop that involved five groups of architects from both Venezuela as well as internationally. Each group focused on developing a project in a community with a high presence of violence. By transforming unused spaces such as empty plots and unregulated landfill areas, the projects sought to create “social dynamics that invite new ways of living in communities, transforming categories that rule the daily life: the use of time and space.” Community involvement in project development was also key to the Espacios de Paz initiative, which sought to  create “a space built not only “for” the community but “by” the community.”
