Futuro Performance

The project presented by Joan Bennassar Cerdà in Tabula Rasa is built around the Futuro, a prefabricated house designed by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen in the late 1960s. Fewer than a hundred of these UFO-shaped houses were made, one of which arrived to Calvià (Mallorca), brought by a group of British musicians. The Majorcan Futuro was used as a bar and space for concerts and activities before falling into disuse. The performance conceived by Joan Cerdà Bennassar wants to relive that time, not out of nostalgia but as an update.
The performance will feature the participation of Xavier Marín (member of the band Oso Leone), Laura Lliteras and Marina Fullana (Dosi, contemporary dance collective) and the artist, who will conduct a live video projection of audiovisual material about the Futuro houses recorded between Taiwan and Mallorca. The music by Marín will create a soundtrack for the images, while the choreography created by Dosi will reflect the relationship between body and architecture.
