( Mal Pelo )

Mal Pelo proposes a laboratory researching the language of movement and its transmission.
A group of people of different ages and backgrounds will meet to share their tools for working with movement, text, composition, musicality and space.
Transmission is always in two directions, from one body to another, enriching the vocabulary and the vision of each of them.

VICINI

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 17/04/2024 to 27/04/2024

VICINI (from the Italian "near" or "neighbours"), is born from the attempt to create an elastic and sensitive structure where to perceive how individual and group actions are constantly interwoven with their environment.
Through gestures, words and objects, the 4 performers on stage speak of the parallelism and the connection between the "inside" and the "outside", between the perceivable, the speakable and the imaginable, between the senses, the thoughts and the internal poetics of a body-singular and a body-crowd.

From October 8th 2023, witnessing the escalation of brutalities inflicted on the Palestinian people, artistic and political reflections began to weave inseparably.
In the network of connections, affectations and parallelisms between near and far events, sprang the impulse to extend our gaze to the east and approach the testimonies and poems of resilience and resistance.

"From what wind have you come?
Tell me the name of your wound and I’ll know
the road we got lost twice!"
("Mural" Mahmoud Darwish)

VICINI

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 22/04/2024 to 23/04/2024

Federica Porello, Xavi Moreno, Maria Mora i Majo Villafaina
( Federica Porello, Xavi Moreno, Maria Mora i Majo Villafaina )

VICINI is a creation traversed by different practices and tools for movement improvisation, objects manipulation and writing.

Throughout the residency periods, the team organizes open workshops to share these tools and to generate a dialogue springing from the physical experience of the materials they are investigating.

The workshops are a space for participative and guided explorations based on somatic practices and concepts such as the dialogue between bodies through contact or an object that connects them, the forces of attraction and repulsion that this may generate, and the structural imbalance in relation to an interdependent stability.

We invite you to the next meetings on the 22nd and 23rd of April, from 6.30pm to 9.00pm, at L'animal a l'esquena.

Notes:
Limited places. ?For more information and to join the laboratory write to federica.porello@gmail.com

De voz, un cuerpo/Voice, Body

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 20/05/2024 to 25/05/2024

Leonor Leal
( Leonor Leal )

De voz, un cuerpo is a performance project with four musicians and a dancer. Together they will compose a sound track based on research begun by Leonor Leal at the end of 2022. This sound track will be the fruit of a free interpretation of the testimonies of women (former flamenco dancers) who described to Leonor their inner images as they danced.

There are few texts written by flamenco dancers, rather than essays on dance or biographies. There are few bodies that have published their internal images, based on their personal observations that have helped them to dance better. Practice is full of tangible material for our bodies, words that resonate one day in our learning process and change our vision, lines of light, lines on the floor, in sound, on our skins, ideas, sensations, temporary parameters, silences, gestures, prayers, invocations of other bodies, melodies, remedies and even entire conversations in the solitude of our bodies on this art that has always seemed from the outside to be mute.

NUNCA VERÁS NADA IGUAL PORQUÉ NOS DA IGUAL

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 27/05/2024 to 01/06/2024

Los Informalls
( Los Informalls )

Los informalls are addicted to risk, to taking the difficult path, throwing themselves into the abyss of facing up to everything beyond their control and all life’s struggles, breaking out of their comfort zone and treading the very limit of their capabilities. The aim of their new piece is to return to play and exploration of the ridiculous as research methods. This time their starting point is the hypothetical creation of a musical album … only fate will decide how this all ends. A possible premier in 2023, at the very least!

PERDRE EL CAP/LOSING YOUR HEAD

From 03/06/2024 to 08/06/2024
Presentation :

Mariantònia Oliver
( Mariantònia Oliver )

Perder la cabeza is a choreographic project for unconventional spaces, created and directed by Mariantònia Oliver, with the performer and dancer Alejandra Balboa and a soundscape created with Joana Gomila.
It is a piece of research into origins, ancestry, the roots that pull us towards the earth and give us the strength to fly.
It is a reflection on the different layers that limit, and define, the human condition and its embodiment. It reveals how the exterior and artificial ends up imposing an image of ourselves within us.

A piece of research into origings, ancestry, the roots that pull us into the earth and give us the strength to fly … a mane of hair inhabited by a mythological being, the symbiosis between our animal and sensual natures …a process of growth.

INSTITUT STOCOS / Muriel Romero, Pablo Palacio
( INSTITUT STOCOS / Muriel Romero, Pablo Palacio )

ncubatio es a piece that combines dance, music, models of artificial intelligence, virtual reality and techniques of movement capture as part of a performance.
Incubatio is based on the archaic practice of the same name, which had its roots in Western Asia, on the distant fringes of the eastern Greek world.
A cure that consisted in lying down in a sacred place, a cave or temple, so as to enter into a state beyond everyday consiousness until you had a vision or powerful dream. Inspired by this practice, Incubatio is a performance piece that recreates these archetypal dreams or visions, with the help of innovative technology especially designed for this project. The piece combines dance, interactive music and visual imagerey.

CUERPOS CELESTES/HEAVENLY BODIES

From 24/06/2024 to 29/06/2024

Azkonatoloza
( Azkonatoloza )

CUERPOS CELESTES/HEAVENLY BODIES
a documentary project of science and fiction.

In this residency AZKONATOLOZA will continue researching their new piece CUERPOS CELESTES, the second part of FALLA, a new series of live arts research projects by these two artists.

After eight years travelling around Abya Yala with our Trilogía Pacífico, tracing the cracks left by colonialism and capitalist barbarism on the life of the planet, delving into the consequences of unregulated extraction and the geopolitical relationships that underpin all this, our questions were piling up:

Now what? Where are we headed?
What surface should we scour?
Which voices should we listen to?

The first clue was to be found in the last verse of Teatro Amazonas: “Now, what we have to do is stop and listen.”

Listening was the starting point for the new journey we embarked on with Canto Mineral, the opening piece of FALLA, the series of documentary research, speculative reality and science fiction that we are currently involved in. Because after years giving our attention to human stories and voices, who should we listen to now?

What if it wasn’t the humans, or the animals, or even the trees that would have the last word, as Joan Brossa wrote? What if it was the stones, the minerals or the electromagnetic waves?
