Horizontal -Vertical was founded in Paris by Monica Mojica; a Franco-Colombian artist from Bogotá.
The Company’s work is interdisciplinary, intending to develop and consolidate projects which combine liberty and defiance of artistic borders at the core of the creative impulse. New forms of expression are explored, seeking a hybrid of contemporary language reflecting the present world, building bridges and unconventional dialogues between fiction, reality and the documentary image.
The productions involve various different disciplines: theater, performance, visual and sound installations, short films, interventions using non-conventional spaces, inspired by classic works, films, writings, contemporary authors and biographies revisited in the light of current events, as well as socio- political issues transposed to artistic devices.
Scene writing is at the center of the creative process, in search of poetic and living forms.
Our most recent creation “La sombra del Amazonas” (2015,) is based on the Colombian socio-political conflict and inspired by the testimonies of hostages of the Farc. The work is articulated through video, animation, documentary material, audio performance and the olfactory dimension. 5 different aromas are released into the auditorium during the play, generating an experience of sensory immersion.
