La Máquina Somática (The Somatic Machine)    … is the inciting and creative encounter of Javier Gutierrez and Alexander Gümbel, two transdisciplinary artists that have collaborated since 2008 creating pieces that poetically inquire into the different states of violence in the relation between body and society, body and space, body and its forms of expression, body and reality; about the scenic gesture, the staging of everyday spaces; about the meaning of the live event/act and its relations with virtual experiences, among others. Throughout their career together they have kept an unconditional interest on provoking and expanding the limits of the various disciplines that make up their work territory (dance, theatre, performance, sound art and video installation).
