El Cuco Projekt

Sonia Franken and Gonzalo Barahona operate at the intersection of Visual Art and Dance Choreography and its creative interweaving of both art forms. Departing and central point of our aesthetic creation is playing with movement and (animal) masks. The play with masks implies various elements: design, production, research and performance of construction as well as movement material. We are fascinated by the simultaneity of the animation of a mask and the objectification of the human body: with masks our bodies in movement generate characters that have the potential of a figure, sculpture, painting, and cartoon.
