BIRAKA is a reflection on the similarities and differences between traditional Basque and contemporary dance. Instinct has prompted the development of a choreographic dialogue with Basque culture, its history and language, using traditional elements to reinvent it through the language of contemporary choreography.

The musical composition uses the txalaparta, which it is believed was originally used as a way of calling people according to custom and which has evolved from its traditional rhythms, adapting and acquiring new uses and material to create new tones and melodies.
The stage becomes a space in which to express dance very personally, growing from the deepest roots (origins and beginnings), absorbing everything they need as they spin on themselves or around others (development), nourishing themselves and making way for a new space, their own.
