In January Mal Pelo is continuing to work on the creation process for a new piece to be premiered on March 28th at the TNC.
María Muñoz has performed Bach, based on pieces from The Well Tempered Clavier, in many countries. Following on from this, Mal Pelo are continuing their research into a profound and dynamic language combining dance and music in dialogue with the work of J S Bach. The Bach Project provides the umbrella for three years of research on a multi-focal project on movement and the work of the German composer, based on a study of baroque music and its relationship with movement, space and choreographic composition.

ANATOMY AND MOVEMENT: how to improve movement and the recuperation of performers

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 23/02/2019 to 24/02/2019
Presentation :
On 23/02/2019 at 11:00 in L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
On 24/02/2019 at 11:00 in L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)

Sergi Plà
( Sergi Plà )

The design of the human anatomy, like that of any other animal, encourages movement and this therefore makes us healthy. The progressive loss of awareness of our own vital rhythms leads to badly co-ordinated, inharmonious and restricted movement. Understanding how our organism is structured will help us recover and develop a balanced body language.


From 11.00 to 18.00 at L’animal a l’esquena
Price: 70,00 euros

SOMA

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 05/04/2019 to 16/04/2019

Javier Martín, Joaquín Jara
( Javier Martín, Joaquín Jara, Octavio Mas, Sabela Mendoza )

“mud looks at mud and understands that it is beautiful”

SOMA (provisional title) is an experiment in performance and material that focuses on a study of the body and movement as shadow and fragment. Weight and measure are an expression of its power and its disappearance, the necessary crack and abyss. An escape from ritual.
This is an installation and performance shared by dancer, sculptor and lighting expert, passing through different physical states, aesthetic concepts and qualities of movement, relating with each other and blurring their roles through sculptures, material, ambiances, objects and choreography that develop in a space formed before the spectator’s eyes.

DESDE LO IMPREVISTO / UNEXPECTED

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 18/04/2019 to 23/04/2019

Rosalía Zanón
( Rosalía Zanón, Ricardo Zanón, Tristán Pérez-Martín )

There is a recurring landscape within me. Immense, immeasurable, far from all else.
The desert is almost always a single, straight line, boring and unchanging… When did it begin?
When does it end?
It is its apparent stillness that gives it its monotony and unforeseen movements are what break through it.
Is it possible to create a path through this landscape?

LLOPS TRISTOS / SAD WOLVES

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 03/05/2019 to 05/05/2019

Cia l'Aviador
( Cia l'Aviador )

“LLOPS TRISTOS (SAD WOLVES)” takes place in a Museum of Contemporary Art. One of those completely white museums. Various people happen to bump into each other: the assistant director, the director’s secretary, a young man and woman doing a casting for a performance. At first some are working and the others passing by. But gradually they will nearly all end up living in the Museum, one literally and others in spirit. The white space fills up. But this is because outside everything is growing more and more senseless, emptying.

Wi (n) dow

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 13/05/2019 to 18/05/2019
Presentation :
On 18/05/2019 at 19:00 in L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)

Pau Aran
( Pau Aran )

How should I dance for, towards and about someone who is absent? How do I leave him or her, so as to continue dancing for the next person?

In this choreographic solo, Pau wants to develop his role as an independent performer-creator, which is emerging parallel to his current work as a teacher, after working for years as a permanent member of the
Tanztheater Wuppertal-Pina Bausch. The title of the piece is “Wi(n)dow”. The “n” is framed by its own window between brackets, and marks the potential of presence in absence.

SER

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 20/05/2019 to 25/05/2019

Sira Aymerich, Pep Aymerich
( Sira Aymerich, Pep Aymerich )

This is a piece made by two creators from different eras who coincide at the same time. They work on the duality of one being, on confrontation with the other and with oneself. We’ll build the relationship of life size puppet replicas of father and daughter, a cadence of antagonism and affinity between the two.
