Estoy ensayando un gesto / Antonia Palacios

I’m Practicing A Gesture

I’m practicing a gesture. My equilibrium is broken at the start of a gesture. My body remains at rest. I have stopped at a gesture. I’m looking for another form, disengaging it from time, freeing it from the body. I have begun to flow like a swollen river. There are hands that sink, hands that want to touch. My gesture is stretched out, it stops belonging to me. Another gesture stands up, another flight, another distance.
