The process of creating the piece 'OVVIO' lasted two and a half years
'OVVIO' seems simple: a couple of wooden boards, two chairs and two artists. However, Díez assures that they try to reach their limits from simplicity. In addition, they are clear that the balance between the two and achieving it day by day is "what allows us to do and enjoy what we do". The public will be able to enjoy the show as part of the nineteenth edition of Mueca in Puerto de la Cruz.
- 'OVVIO' looks like a game, is it for you?
'OVVIO' is a game, if it's not fun for us, what's the point?
- Two tables, a couple of chairs, two artists. Everything is apparently simple in 'OVVIO', but how was the creation process? Why do they use wood?
It seems simple, but it is from simplicity that we intend to reach our limits. The investigation of raw materials and everyday objects is something that interests us, with which we continue to work and investigate, it is our universe if we want to call it that.
The process of creating 'OVVIO' lasted two and a half years and although it does seem like a long time, we always had the feeling that we needed more time, but 'OVVIO' is just the beginning.
- They assure that the most important balance is that of day to day, why?
We are a duo and different people, with different tastes, needs and cultures. Nothing can be built without the other person, without their collaboration or without their trust. This is something that we have to take care of and keep in mind. In short, it is the main balance that allows us to do and enjoy what we do.
- What kind of physical preparation do you have to carry out these shows? And mental?
A part of creation is precisely this, learning to fall, to be ready when this happens. Once you know the possibilities of falling and your body responds well, you work in a calmer way. You naturally focus and condition your body before each show. But the main work has been the years of preparation.
- What do you expect from a festival like Mueca?
Enjoy it, above all.
