"Apocalypse Among Friends or Simply the Day" by Julián Pacomio at La Capella Friday 24 September
For a long time we’ve been going to bed early. We are people of the day, night is someone else’s business. We wait for the apocalypse together, all of us, here. At some point, the familiar, the intimate, will become unsettling, and the end will come peacefully, so kind. Something dark will emerge to the surface incriminating life, and nothing will be the same; memories, those of passed times, will no longer matter; only the strongest ones will, that is, those of now. We will never be contemporary again and only daylight will remain, as simple as that.
[…] it is that this makes no sense but the rest makes no sense but the rest is death.
Julián Pacomio explores the idea of copying, remaking, translating and appropriating other people’s material in his stage projects. Since 2018, he has been collaborating with choreographer Ángela Millano (Spain) in the research project Asleep Images, which includes the pieces Make It, Don’t Fake It (2019) and PSYCHO (2020). He has worked with choreographers such as João Fiadeiro (Portugal), Carolina Campos (Brazil), Luis Garay (Columbia), Daniel Pizamiglio (Brazil-Portugal) and Annika Pannitto (Italy), among others. In 2020, he curated NO NO NO SOLO SOLO NO, a series of performances for INJUVE’s Sala Amadís (Madrid), and is preparing the exhibition Contemplate an Unstable Surface, winner of the Inèdits 2021 competition at La Casa Encendida, alongside Ignacio de Antonio Antón (Spain).
Julián Pacomio is a resident artist of Graner 2021 by open call (Modality A – Creation residencies) and his project “Apocalypse Among Friends or Simply the Day” was selected by the open all Barcelona Production (La Capella) – live performance projects modality.
