PIANO SUSPENDIDO, DER BAUCH + CARMINA ESCOBAR from Carmina Escobar on Vimeo.

An elaborately prepared piano hovers above the stage for Pura Entraña, a hyper-sounding textural performance by experimental vocalist and intermedia artist Carmina Escobar, who activates the installation Piano Suspendido(Suspended Piano) by Jerónimo Naranjo. Their collaboration with the Mexican improvisation ensemble Der Bauch (José Pablo Jiménez, Deborah Silberer, Jerónimo Naranjo) and experimental luthier Carlos Chinchillas, explores the subject of vulnerability in its poetic sense. A magic sonic/visual surrealist realization, Pura Entraña (Pure Gut) follows a route of perceptual narratives in a performance that seeks to connect the audience to the essential sounds/gestures from the bodies and voices of the performers, and the piano and its entrails.

Invited artists include Dorian Wood, Roxanne Steinberg, Oguri, and the Maqueos Family.
