Juan Dominguez is conceptual clown, magical cowboy, poet-model and curator of pleasure. His works propose the dissolution of the limit between reality and fiction, using the first to determine the second and vice versa. The title Between what is no longer and what is not yet reveals from the beginning the desire that the artist wishes to undertake in this performance. Juan appropriates a rupture between the past and the future to translate, through language, the thoughts and visions that fluctuate outside the lived experience. In this suspended time, personal anecdotes of Juan’s life are told without following a timeline, and are mixed with other stories, between truth and fabulation. Juan Dominguez progressively introduces the idea of ​​a temporal trend in which everything can be transformed into its own opposite, a caesura that leaves room for the unexpected.

Juan Dominguez will also hold a workshop open to the public on September 5th. Here all the info to book.
