CPPM Manifestal'24: NOBODY SLEEPS. Javier Cárcel Hidalgo-Saavedra

Javier Cárcel Hidalgo-Saavedra (1990) is a performance maker, actor, director, and singer born in Valencia, Spain. His practice plays with the exploration of living voice and alive singing, dramaturgical burning territories, the grotesque, and the research on organic physical action and movement. His work navigates between tradition and contemporary artistic expression. Javier is fascinated by the potential of performance as a means to cultivate tools for developing the performer’s presence, immediacy, and self-awareness in relation to “the other”, be it the audience, the fellow performers, a given context, or the world in constant change inside and around him.

After graduating in 2010 from the International Laboratory of the Actor in Movement in Valencia, he pursued a B.A. in Physical Theatre at the Institut del Teatre of Barcelona, graduating in 2015. Between 2010 and 2016, he collaborated with distinguished theatre directors and choreographers such as Ximo Flores, Amalia Fernández, Stéphane Lévy, and Andrés Corchero.

From 2016 to 2022, Javier worked at The Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards, where he delved, under the direction of Thomas Richards, into the praxis of the performing arts research initiated by the Polish theater master Jerzy Grotowskibased on ancient songs of tradition and theatre arts. He performed with The Workcenter in Europe and Latin America in Sin Fronteras, The Underground, and Songs of Tradition.
