TITLE : DANCE DE L' EAU
AUTHOR : ELENA PLAZA
Photographer Elena Plaza establishes a visual connection between jellyfish and dance, representing the balance in which we live on earth.
“Dance de l’eau” shows us the fusion of two apparently very different elements: jellyfish and dancers in motion.
Both share a deep and significant bond: water.
Water, a vital element for all forms of life, is the common thread of this exhibition. Dancers and jellyfish move in unison, as if connected by an invisible bond (of life).
Jellyfish, marine creatures that have inhabited our oceans for millions of years, are considered the oldest animals on Earth.
Its ethereal beauty and ability to adapt have fascinated scientists and artists.
In this project, jellyfish become protagonists, captured in their purest and most delicate essence.
Their translucent bodies and floating tentacles intertwine in an aquatic ballet, creating a hypnotic dance that invites us to immerse ourselves in their world.
On the other hand, dancers, through their graceful and fluid movements, transmit emotions and tell stories without the need for words thanks to dance, one of the oldest forms of human expression.
Their bodies, like ours, are 70% water, a liquid element that unites them again in a new similarity to “sea tears” (98%).
The dancers become interpreters of water, capturing its essence and fluidity in each pose and each gesture.
Their bodies contort and slide in space, imitating the elegance and lightness of jellyfish.
But beyond the aesthetic beauty of this exhibition, there is a profound message that invites us to reflect on the importance and necessity of respect for the environment.
Through the dance and the presence of the jellyfish, we are reminded that we are part of a delicate balance in which each living being has a fundamental role.
