"Performance Art is body, time and space; from this actions are gestated ". María Teresa Hincapié.

"A winged body that seems to float over space; from the extreme slowness the angel breaks with the daily temporality and introduces us into another time: the time of contemplation, time of the sacred where it floats ". Consuelo Pabón. "Sobre Dulce Compañía, by María T. Hincapié".

MY BODY AS A BATTLEGROUND: Performance Art Workshop

January 15, 2018

Gnôthi Seauton, as we understand it, is an important pillar of our sense of spirituality. Gnôthi Seauton calls us to accept reality, not as we wish it to be, but as it really is. It reminds us that our understanding of reality will always be imperfect and incomplete. Many things are beyond our ability to know. Yet it challenges us to strive to know and understand to our fullest ability. It teaches us to accept human limitations both in ourselves and others. Perfection is not a characteristic of the human but the divine. It forces us to confront the reality of death. It reminds us that life is fragile, short and capricious. Even in our relatively safe, modern world, we have no guarantee of a tomorrow. But it is because this life is ephemeral, that it is made more precious and beautiful, like the first flowers of spring.

INTERIORISMO: Una poética del gesto

February 14, 2018

Based on the poetical imagery of the Argentinian writer Alejandra Pizarnik.

Our proposal moves on horseback between the virtuosity of Butôh dance, and the revaluation of all corporal poetry.

It should be noted that these verbal movements never move away from the literary tradition-because the historical memory and the collective identity is one of the cultural front, but the main task of experimentation, promoting the renewal, modernization and reinterpretation of

cultural tradition.

"INTERIORISMO" is an incursion to Alejandra Pizarnik's dark world through the amateur corporal poetry. She is considered one of the most important lyrical and surrealistic poets in Argentina. The intervention comes up from three of her short poems, confronting words and silence, light and obscurity, movement and calmness.

BOTU: Performance Art

March 15, 2018

GNOTHI SEAUTON Ephemeral Performance Art Ensemble makes live interventions inspired by punk, comics, cinema, science, nightmares & dreams by live soundscaping & our own style of visceral movement theater & dance. Our proposal is a catharsis through collision and conflict challenging how we see audience, architecture, music, history, myth, and reality. It comes out of a deep desire for conspiracy, soul-exchange, and transformation. | PERFORMERS | Solano Alejandra Cadence Crowley David Castañeda Kevin Feehan Kova Vee | GUEST ARTISTS | Basilio Santiago DJ EGOTRONIC https://soundcloud.com/djegotronic Axel VJ Axx https://www.instagram.com/p/BZAMSHvg6LNdGM17t9qsJftVKRPWhRw7fxgECY0/ Kris Burns https://kristopherburns.bandcamp.com/ https://soundcloud.com/kris-bassed-out TTUM https://soundcloud.com/ttummusic https://www.facebook.com/events/1706175263024116 Taken by Brandie Williams

ATARAXIA: Sowing affection, nourishes life 

July 11 | 2018

Ataraxia: the psychic disposition thanks to which we find emotional balance by decreasing the intensity of our passions and desires and the strength of the soul in the face of adversity.

Searching for serenity is, therefore, the objective that sets the next performance by Gnôthi Seauton, in which the performer relies on the preconceptions of body, presence, and humanity, multiple details, where the lighting, sound, and structured social networks lead Aleha Solano through an emotional and poetic dream. Sublime and rude at the same time, intense and delicate, Ataraxia is a compendium of emotions and desires.

"I went through delusions, desires to do, to obtain, to seem around an absent being. Then I had to resist the charms of my own soul and pierce the heart of ecstasy to fall into the darkness where I could finally smile, on a calm face. "
