“Las voces del GPS” at CentroCentro Madrid

“The voices of the GPS”, a project curated by Paula García-Masedo and María Rogel, emerges from a research context generated ex-profeso for the meeting between architecture and choreography. Team pairs of both disciplines have worked on a selection of events that occurred during car trips in the decades of 2000 and 2010.

From this real news, a joint investigative process has been developed that ends with a series of proposals in room, hybrid between the choreography and the installation. Other pieces, outside of CentroCentro, circulate in a car with driver. Crash crash crash crash. The exhibition is a journey through events, oscillating between the reality of the installations of the exhibited pieces and the world of fiction in which we live.

Finally, Paula García-Masedo and María Rogel, starting from how Valdebebas became a ruin of modernity and reappropriated as the setting for illegal rallies, have generated in Do (des) appear a car a dialogue between a group of fans car modification practices and a car in the room. The exhibition will also actively dialogue with the city, through the proposals of La Intrusa Danza and GOIG, which will take place on the device itself vehicles with driver.
