If every rock is a hole
If every rock is a hole, then every absence is a presence. If every hole is a rock, then vulnerability is a force.
If every rock is a hole is a subtle and contemplative dance performance in which the audience is invited to slow down and look beyond the visible. In this work Argentinian choreographer Amparo González Sola challenges the borders between visibility and invisibility, resisting and surrendering, presence and absence. The piece summons hidden memories, images, movements and sounds of deserted landscapes.
What do we encounter when we give attention to the quiet resonances and the still movements that are often overlooked?

Amparo González Sola (Argentina, 1984) is a choreographer, dancer and researcher. She currently lives in Amsterdam where she did her master at DAS Choreography (AHK). Her research of the last few years has developed around the notion of “reciprocity”. This research has taken the form of performances and also of participative practices, workshops and texts. Her work is affected by her experience within feminist activism, the ongoing process of contact with the cosmology of her ancestors and her experience of migration. In 2022 she premiered “If every rock is a hole” and this year “The conspiracy of forms”, both within the SPRING Performing Arts Festival (NL). She constantly collaborates with other artists and researchers both in Argentina and Europe.
