Herramientas para la acción/Tools for Action

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 20/09/2021 to 24/09/2021

Mal Pelo
( Mal Pelo, Pep Ramis i María Muñoz )

Mal Pelo offers a workshop in which to try out the mechanisms of action and where they may lead. A look at movement and writing for the body in action. Precision, endurance, commitment, intensity, silence, absence, presence, punctuation, habitability, surrender, phrasing, linearity, temporality, musicality, rhythm, and writing are some of the terms we shall be investigating during this course.
To activate: 1. To put an action into effect 2. To make movements and gestures to make something understood 3. To control the action of a mechanism.
Mal Pelo’s workshops are given by the two co-directors of the company, though both may not be present at every session.

“Are you Sarah Connor?”

The flutter of seconds that separates the question from the answer is enough to allow the exterminator literally to put his foot in the door, press the trigger and fire at point blank range, without knowing if this is, or not in fact the person he was looking for. In that instant he exterminates any imminent or immediate future for that person.

Figuras del umbral/Figures on the Threshold

Javier Martín
( Javier Martín )

FIGURAS DEL UMBRAL is based on the reflections of a body in the age of acceleration. We live in times of lives in flight, caught in the inertia of everyday life and rhythms determined by the demands of production and efficiency, which constantly postpone desire and scatter and fragment our attention. These accelerated bodies are full of pent up speed, inorganic ways of doing things and tacit behaviours, and lack repertoire. In these crazy times, Pasolini’s slogan becomes more relevant than ever: “throw your body into battle”, throw your body into dance, alert to a moderate, observant vibe, ready to open up to create new movements, new gestures to break with the hegemony of the myth that technology is neutral, for it depends on cultural norms.

La Contínua/Continuous

Mariantònia Oliver
( Mariantònia Oliver )

For the thirtieth anniversary of the Compañía Mariantònia Oliver, the artist has decided to “revisit” some of the pieces that have been significant in her career, bring them back to life and interpret them with all her accumulated experience and a fresh perspective.

La Continua is based on the concept of fragmentation as a basis for experiment and choreographic composition, in the creation of a situation of tense intimacy with the audience and by active, improvised involvement of spectators in the performance.

The stage is structured around a sofa. The idea is arbitrarily to invite spectators to sit on it and take an active part in the construction of our dramatic plot. This will entail a flow of improvisation, freshness and spontaneity and exposes us to risk and error. It will keep us on our toes and modify the lines of composition, like an open game in which no sooner do rules expire, new ones are invented.

Manuel Ronda
( Manuel Ronda )

Narration, the physical and mental body, resonance or the voices that become words, speech and words, none of these ever manifest themselves completely or directly in an accessible way. You have to seek them out with intuition, lucid effort, determined to invent an expression of the self.
An affirmation of character that breaks free of the absolutes of reality, designing motifs that are never detected or organised according to the hierarchy of efficiency and the superiority of movement and synthesis. These are diagrams, impressions in style and structure, in shapes, in a range of recorded narratives.

YOLO

Marta Izquierdo
( Marta Izquierdo )

Contrary to a negative opinion of modern adolescents that is far too widespread, the opposite of a clinical documentary on the young, we offer a group of teenagers the chance to give shape to images they themselves have dreamt up. YOLO, in urban slang, stands for the English acronym “You Only Live Once”.

Mabel Olea
( Mabel Olea )

Clumsiness has been the main incentive to weave, thread and embroider a piece that hopes to capture and create a cosy, kindly atmosphere with whoever you watch it with. Being clumsy stays with us all our lives, to a greater or lesser extent, though it’s only in childhood that it is allowed, the stage when falling down and making mistakes is an innate part of learning and discovery. My intention is to reverse its meaning and praise it, to squeeze all the juice out of it and make something jolly, naive and sensitive, treating it with a radical simplicity that includes each and every one of the stages and experiences of our lives: growing up, but also falling in love or losing physical and mental faculties.
JAPAN aims to be a story that travels and shows us a catalogue of some extremely clumsy bodies. It is an over the top love letter, passionate, fantastical and innocent.

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!

En el nombre de Bach/In the Name of Bach

Magdalena Garzón
( Magdalena Garzón )

En el nombre de Bach/In the Name of Bach is the new proposal for a performance piece by María Magdalena Garzón, following the line of research begun three years ago exploring the relationship between music and dance in performance.

While the story of the relationship between these two art forms makes us think deeply about the main artistic movements, their manifestations, aesthetics and procedures, this project, at least for now, does not claim to be a work of history or research into baroque music and dance. Bringing the two languages together, however, is an attempt to recover the essence of the gestures, in sound and body, of a shared grammar, without filters or conventional baggage. Working on music written earlier, whether or not it was composed for dance, provides a concrete, well-defined framework to work within, while also offering a broad range of possibilities and strategies for composition. In this way, in short, Bach’s work gives us a forest full of symbols, a whole continent of the unforeseen. Its vast complexity and semantic ramifications lead us to unpick the poetry of a process of craftsmanship, to work on references from our cultural heritage, and put our emphasis on the minute detail of the manipulation of the material as an element in composition. En el nombre de Bach is thus based on a desire to give due value to music that has already been written, is already made.
