During many years—practically fifteen—, Jorge Albuerne gave his body to the practice of the circus discipline of the Chinese pole; not far from reaching excellence, but always offering his most passionate dedication, thousands of hours of sweat, hundreds of kilometers walked vertically, bumps, bruises, blood and burns. Shared dreams and that distilled phrase: “The mast eats human flesh”.
This project collects the sublimation of all that pain in seconds of timeless lightness, ephemeral suspension, aerial beauty, with a fleeting and at the same time inextinguishable success. That inner fire and that energy offered us the possibility of being immortal defying gravity and our bodies. This project is in the construction phase and for the moment there are only pages and pages of texts, action projects, countless images, doodles on several kilos of paper, some presentations with the public, countless hours in the studio and unpublished scores of loose materials of movement in the Chinese mast stored in the body waiting to be executed again.
This is an open rehearsal of a stage project still in the process of creation.
