El Club
( El Club )

Piero Steiner, Andrés Corchero, Pep Ramis and Enric Ases have known each other for a long time now. After their paths had crossed several times by chance on stage, they decided in the autumn of 2015 to form a serious association to share their particular ways of doing things, their views on theatre, movement and the world of performance. Different disciplines and languages put to the service of a desire for synthesis, engagement, momentum and discovery. Four men of the same age and height and with the same aim: to seek out new areas of expression and a shared language that would enable them to reach directly to the core of the spectator.

CASA

Casa is a meticulous exercise in broadening the crack that appear in our everyday reality and shake our little universes. It is a project that sees the hole as the most interesting part of the wall.

At home we always feel that reality is woven around us by everyone who is there in the same place. We inhabit a space and people it with meaning, sound and movement. What is more, we like to believe that this reality we create is natural and ontological, firm and stable. It is not. Every reality is merely apparent, relative and fragile, full of holes, tubular and often contradictory.

Practice Makes Perfect

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 22/01/2018 to 27/01/2018
Presentation :

Marta Izquierdo
( Marta Izquierdo, María Muñoz )

For a long time the French-Spanish border has been a phantom or abstract line of geographical separation. But it is also a very concrete natural frontier: the Pyrenees. As a voluntary exile in France for the past fifteen years, Marta Izquierdo Muñoz explores this frontier in this new project, travelling along it physically, taking an interest in its landscape and legends. Her choreographic imagination takes inspiration from the Pyrenees, that natural frontier haunted by tragic migrations like that of Republican exiles after the Spanish Civil War.

( Pau Aran Gimeno, Maite Jáuregui )

Una is a solo for an actress.

It is a theatre project co-directed by Maite Jáuregui and Pau Aran Gimeno, based on a multi-disciplinary, creative exchange of ideas.
Maite Jáuregui performs on stage while Pau Aran Gimeno guides and helps with the work. Together, they have developed and polished the story of Una, a writer who we join in her imaginary world to discover the events that have determined her present, less ideal situation.

This proposal, with the aim of expanding my choreographic language, exploring another musical format and developing sound and space, is centred around the body; around bodies, rhythm and the essence of the guitar. It focuses on everything near to us that brings us closer to our own heart-beat. Natural materials and their textures, pots and pans, the table, cooking utensils as tools for “battle”. The guitar stripped bare, percussion, rudimentary singing, feet dragging across the floor, shoes or voices that make us call on other bodies, all these come to life on stage to create, through a shared folklore that has been re-written, re-travelled and revisited, a multifaceted flamenco performance.
