I propose the idea of The Back Side, after the making of a video in a back street in Yamaguchi city, Japan, where I brought my body to interact with the reality of the back side of people´s houses.
The quality of the back side is that of what is composed spontaneously, without thinking of how it looks like, but just dealing with what is available and necessary. The place where people leave the things they don´t want to have in the front, the things they won´t use for a long time, or the things they don´t know what to do with.
I invite performers and audience (within their own positions), to engage in a dialogue that will let go of anything else beyond this quality, and allow their own back side to participate without the filter of preconceived aesthetics. I invite us all to share a redefinition of the back side, to find it´s use and it´s presence in daily life and performance.
The Back Side is a way and not a subject.
