La primera vez que vi a la compañía de danza dirigida por Lloyd Newson ,DV8 Physical Theatre, fue un domingo noche en Metrópolis, el veterano programa cultural de TVE. Y después de emocionarme con su mediometraje " The Cost Of Living", la única cosa que me venía a la cabeza era la estúpida razón por la que los programadores de tv habían puesto aquella maravilla a las dos de la mañana de un domingo, como si de lo que se tratase fuese de impedir a la mayor cantidad de posibles espectadores la visión y disfrute de esta joya, y no al revés.
Y es que en ocasiones estas cosas de la tv son más difíciles de comprender que algunas de esas instalaciones de los museos modernos, sobre todo si no alquilamos la audio-guía correspondiente que nos vaya explicando porqué razón los jabones apilados de Balka son Arte y los que apilaba nuestra abuela en la pileta eran solo... jabones.
Bueno, a lo que iba, hasta que no me hice con el vídeo no paré.

DV8 Physical Theatre es una compañía de danza que desarrolla espectáculos muy poco convencionales y que se forma a mediados de los 80 en Inglaterra.
En el teatro físico el sentido de la narración se vincula al lenguaje corporal, a la expresividad de lo físico.
El cuerpo y sus movimientos como vehículo narrativo, como instrumento prioritario para contarnos una determinada historia y provocarnos una serie de impresiones y emociones.

" The Cost Of Living" fue el primer mediometraje que yo vi de ellos y mi favorito.
La sinopsis es sencilla: dos artistas callejeros en un pueblo junto al mar. Llegan, luchan por sobrevivir, por salir a flote, por vencer las dificultades de la vida y sus desventajas físicas. La amistad es aquí un valor esencial.
Me gusta este párrafo que extraigo de un crítico: " Todas las historias paralelas que conforman la obra tratan sobre cómo nos evaluamos a nosotros mismos y a otras personas: el costo de vivir... es radial, pero siempre accesible, el trabajo de DV8 es un mediometraje sobre la toma de riesgos".

La música, la estética, la puesta en escena, una historia de amistad, superación, valores y vida narrada( no hace falta saber inglés para entenderlo todo perfectamente) a través de la métrica del lenguaje corporal, de la armonía de cada movimiento, de una simetría o disonancia que nos contagian una sensación de belleza, de placer y de sencilla emoción.
David Toole es el excepcional bailarín sin piernas.

Os dejo tres vídeos. En los dos primeros están dos de mis secuencias favoritas, aunque todo el film es genial, y en el último está completo, 35 minutos.
A mí me parece una delicia, magistral.
Gracias, Metrópolis,por continuar existiendo en estos tiempos de tv tan pésimos para la lírica, aunque sea a las dos de la mañana de un domingo.


Saludos de Jim.
