Panorámica/Panorama

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 02/08/2021 to 07/08/2021

Vicent Gisbert
( Vicent Gisbert )

Panorámica is a collective research and creation project in dance that promotes the use of imagination on stage as a tool to stimulate reflection, experiment and discussion.

The project brings together various collaborators from different artistic fields and is based on the search for an empty space to act as a canvass, so as later to construct landscapes and architecture that provide an alternative to the current reality. From the body, movement, music, audiovisual material and writing, it will generate layers to define places for invention.

I am especially attracted to the idea of approaching EMPTINESS as a way of confronting the excess of information we now have and the power of manipulation this exercises without our hardly noticing. I also like the concept of the LINE as a basic element that is present in all artistic fields, as well as its use to create complicities and the possibility of a break with power.

El aspecto sensorial de las cosas/The Sensory Aspect of Things

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 09/08/2021 to 14/08/2021

Federica Porello
( Federica Porello )

El aspecto sensorial de las cosas is an investigation into the pairing of fragmentation and coordination, applied to thought, movement and the other “things” that make up the identity of a performance piece. It is a project fuelled by a desire to share, in the journey towards the creation of a solo, in interviews and workshops, the questions that arise in the theoretical and physical landscapes that are traversed in the writing of a piece of work.

Papillon

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 09/08/2021 to 14/08/2021

Àngel Duran
( Àngel Duran )

PAPILLON questions the contemporary concept of individual liberty in a society that is ever more dependent. This proposal exposes the collision between impulse and reason; false freedom and real freedom. The identity and singularity of the individual is questioned, with the pretext of presenting the performer in a fictitious luminous cocoon, clearly inspired by a modern Platonic cave.
By understanding anxiety as a vertigo induced by freedom and the inability to take control, the piece presents us with a human being reduced to little more than a sleepwalking robot, a kind of insect-eating puppet, like a butterfly trapped in the light.
The set is surrounded by a light installation around the performer like a cage. The beauty and light of this do not let us see beyond, hiding whatever is in the darkness. Limits and liberty co-exist in the reality of the individual, just as darkness and light are part of the reality of mankind.
The aim of this residency is to finish/conclude the piece before its first performance at the Fira Tàrrega, so the whole team, or most of us, need to meet to fine-tune all the information and every aspect of the piece.

DIOSCURES

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 16/08/2021 to 21/08/2021

Marta Izquierdo
( Marta Izquierdo )

For this new choreographic project, Marta Izquierdo will invite two men to take on the mythological figures of titans or twins. This is an encounter between two dancers, Pepe Serrano and Kouadio Ebenezer, working on mythological figures. Firstly we have the Titans, archaic figures of Greek mythology who lived on Olympus before they were chased out by Zeus and his divine sons. Then we have the heroic and tragic figures of the inseparable twins Castor and Pollux.
Pepe Serrano lives in Madrid, Kouadio Ebenezer (“Ebony”) in Toulouse. They share an imposing height, youth (aged 18 and 23), and appear as two living sculptures, two brother Titans separated not by Mount Olympus, but by the Pyrenees.
These giants, far from having a monolithic virility, are androgynous. As usual in the choreographic projects of Marta Izquierdo, there is a distance between the figure and the performer who embodies him or her.
Pepe is currently working as a drag artist in the discos of Madrid, combining this activity with his work as an actor-performer and as a plastic artist.
Ebenezer is a dancer. He has been a classical dancer but is chiefly known for Voguing, though open to other choreographic languages.

Bernardo Gamboa, Harif Ovalle, David Jiménez
( Bernardo Gamboa, Harif Ovalle, David Jiménez )

The starting point is to explore the spectrum of representations of the Devil in different cultures, with the aim of finding some underlying connection. This cross-cultural record makes us consider, firstly, our own frame of reference, rescuing the figures that have been regarded as “diabolical” since pre-hispanic times, from the devils in nativity plays to the dark western demons of the middle ages, from the profound shamanism of indigenous cultures to the vulgar satanism of teenage games, the chilling obscurantism of the Judeo-Christian devil to the colourful demons of folk dance.

Impromptu

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 06/09/2021 to 11/09/2021

Gaia Magrané, Michèle Benz
( Gaia Magrané, Michèle Benz )

Impromptu is the name of a project by Michèle Benz and Gaia Magrané, a Swiss-Spanish artistic duo. This residency comes in the early days of the project, which began just over a year ago. In it they will be exercising and developing their aptitudes and capacity for instant, spontaneous creation, with the listening skills needed to construct something interesting alongside everything that surrounds us in the here and now (objects, sound, audience, music, bodies …), to be played around with at their whim.

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.
