With Las Ultracosas, Cuqui Jerez and her artistic team seek to explore the limits of language and to play on our expectations and attention. To achieve this, they explore the countless compositions created by the relationship between their bodies and a series of objects and costumes. Working on ambiguity, insinuation and suggestion, the performers create situations from which meaning evaporates and incomplete dramaturgical sequences accumulate, overlap and intrigue. There is a kind of contagion between the performers, they have in common in their look a dose of suspicion, fear, curiosity and uncertainty. Las Ultracosas is like a living painting, an aesthetic experience of contemplation that attracts attention like a magnet, with endless suspense and tension that is fuelled to excess.
