EJECT (2012) forms, with PLAY (2006) and EDIT (2010), a trilogy based on choreographic and audiovisual research.

EJECT is the definitive button, the most human function of the video-player. It restores physicality to all the images contained in a video-tape. It is a qualitative jump: it doesn't make you move forward or backwards, it doesn’t produce any happy or unhappy ending. Instead it breaks the spell of fiction. The video-cassette softly glides out of the machine stepping up our awareness another notch. It is the escape from one representation into a larger one which contains it, moving towards an infinite number of possible frames...

EJECT is a choreographic essay for three multiplied bodies. It’s a reflection about memory as a degraded accumulation and the elastic quality of time.

This piece is inspired by the cinematographic concept of framing, which defines the limits of a specific reality. Re-framing changes the point of view and the body adapts to the new configuration. This action of zooming out from a perceived set to a larger one that contains it awakens our awareness.

The dancer and maker Pablo Esbert Lilienfeld (Madrid, 1981) culminates now in 2012 his trilogy with EJECT. I’ve seen the three proposals and I can say that there is an evident thread of development, gaining a broader esthetic sense and increasing  the product value.

Esbert breaths deeply in the here and now. The loops slowly produces the desired effect: a perfect canon in the projection screen. A feeling of damaged virtuosity.

Pablo Esbert shows himself, once again, as the curious artist that he is and defines a style in his research with formulas always close to performance and de-construction languages.
