RESTLESS: emotional state caused by apprehension, uncertainty.
Inquietud: falta de quietud, desasosiego from Latin inquietudo “agitation, lack of calm, restlessness”.
Restless = in constant movement, hyperactive.
In this solo show, acrobat Edward Aleman takes us on a journey through memories to his childhood village in Colombia. He tells his story as much through movement as through words, mirroring the show’s title, Inquiétude (Restess).
The only set piece is a rocking chair – familiar household object of Colombian homes – upon which Aleman plays with sensitivity and delicacy, standing upright on it, twisting around it, constantly seeking his point of equilibrium.
An artist in perpetual motion, with a boundless store of energy, Edward Aleman’s journey to his roots gives him the strength to understand himself, to struggle and to live!
