“”Fascinated by the beauty of real friendship, I’m sharing my choreographic reflections about these dancers and how did they have built their future since their youthfulness”. (Jaciel Neri)
In Mexico being “carnal” of someone, is being a friend who is like your brother. This kind of close relationship pretends to last forever. That ́s why «Nosotros» is a story of “carnales” that reveals the typical Mexican masculine world denoted by the spontaneous creativity of what happens in our context. Extreme physicality games, free wrestling (Lucha libre), street soccer, videogames, the murmur of their neighborhoods and the typical whistles codified between friends are elements that shows us the fragility and sensitivity hide behind the meaning of being a man in México. The sense of humor and a frontal relation with the audience, cover the piece with freshness and vitality.
This piece by Jaciel Neri in it ́s short version, had awarded in 2010-2011 the “XXXI Premio INBA-UAM”, the most important choreographic prize in México. Also in 2014, ”Nosotros” won the first place and the Audience Award of 9th International Choreography Competition “No Ballet”, Germany.
“Nosotros” has toured around México, Colombia, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Poland and Spain. This piece was created in collaboration with the performers of Cuatro x Cuatro.
