Boiler Room. Novaciéries. (La) Horde
Luis Adelantado is pleased to present Novaciéries, a film to be projected in our Boiler Room as a result of the collaboration between our gallery and the 10 Sentidos Festival. This event is characterised for its critical spirit and also for its perspective on our current society, aiming on each edition to give visibility to issues concerning our community and also to highlight the power of art as a catalyst of social action.
In the 16 minute movie entitled Novaciéries by (La) Horde sets up a contemplative situation staging and reinterpreting Jumpstyle, a dance emerged from Mainstream Hardcore, to deliver a mysterious report on the development of a post-internet dance.
The film is a global project mixing cinematographic images shot by a movie crew but also performance captations with the cast of the film and homemade videos made by the interpreters themselves shared on youtube and other platforms. The camera follows a singer and dancers wander in an abandoned steel mill.
The dancers respond to the lost beat of machinery by executing Hard Jump and Hakken figures while the singer turns a Hardcore anthem Hardcore to the bone into a lyrical lament.
We are invited to follow the wander of the interpreters until they get together to deliver a show without an audience. All along we waver between the idealized vision of their representation and the reality of its visibility. “Novacieries is a combination of cinema, performance, and home video that transcends dance films and presents a choreographed and metaphysical portrait of the post-industrial world by reinterpreting post-internet dance.”
