history of shows

fronteras

Released on April 29 2009, on the cruise of the Royal Hospital of Granada, the international day of dance. Frontiers is an abstract spectacle of contemporary dance and live music wich proposes to the viewer a reflection on the concept of border in the broadest sense. This show has been performed both in conventional theaters and in the Street giving very good results in terms of its staging. Two dancers, a musician and a large iron structure, make up the aesthetics from this show. A multidisciplinary work with a non.linear structure that starts from the abstraction. The frontier is exit and return, its the road and is transformation. We are frontier when we stop being a barrier, we are way when we cease to be.

signos de arena

Premiered at the Municipal Theater of Alhendin (Granada) in November of 2007. It is a show aimed at an adult audience that deals with the subject of the relationship between the sexes. Gestural treatise on gender violence that starts from a story repeated a thousand times: the courtship of the woman blind with love for a man who can barely conceal this brutality and that will end the oppression in the flesh, the abuse, the mental dictatorship and the despair. To illustrate this fall into the abyss of humiliation and the madness of Sand Signs uses a catalog of movements and symbols that manages to drag us, beyond the banal rhethoric, inside the victim itself. Vertical dance, smoke, wáter and sand introduce us in the depths of a scream, they make us feel it within ourselves.
