De voz, un cuerpo/Voice, Body

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 20/05/2024 to 25/05/2024

Leonor Leal
( Leonor Leal )

De voz, un cuerpo is a performance project with four musicians and a dancer. Together they will compose a sound track based on research begun by Leonor Leal at the end of 2022. This sound track will be the fruit of a free interpretation of the testimonies of women (former flamenco dancers) who described to Leonor their inner images as they danced.

There are few texts written by flamenco dancers, rather than essays on dance or biographies. There are few bodies that have published their internal images, based on their personal observations that have helped them to dance better. Practice is full of tangible material for our bodies, words that resonate one day in our learning process and change our vision, lines of light, lines on the floor, in sound, on our skins, ideas, sensations, temporary parameters, silences, gestures, prayers, invocations of other bodies, melodies, remedies and even entire conversations in the solitude of our bodies on this art that has always seemed from the outside to be mute.

NUNCA VERÁS NADA IGUAL PORQUÉ NOS DA IGUAL

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 27/05/2024 to 01/06/2024
Presentation :
On 31/05/2024 at 18:00 in Teatre Ateneu (Celrà)

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!

Tools for Action

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 27/05/2024 to 31/05/2024

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

Mal Pelo offers a workshop in which to try out the mechanisms of action and what they may unleash. A look at movement and writing with the body in action.

Precision, duration, commitment, intensity, silence, absence, presence, punctuation, habitability, surrender, phrasing, punctuation, linearity, temporality, musicality, rhythm, writing - these are some of the terms that we shall be questioning during this course.

Activate:
Carry out an action.
Carry out movements and gestures to make something understood.
Activate a mechanism.

Mal Pelo workshops are given by the company’s two co-directors, though both may not be present at any given session.

PERDRE EL CAP/LOSING YOUR HEAD

Presentation :

Mariantònia Oliver
( Mariantònia Oliver )

Perder la cabeza is a choreographic project for unconventional spaces, created and directed by Mariantònia Oliver, with the performer and dancer Alejandra Balboa and a soundscape created with Joana Gomila.
It is a piece of research into origins, ancestry, the roots that pull us towards the earth and give us the strength to fly.
It is a reflection on the different layers that limit, and define, the human condition and its embodiment. It reveals how the exterior and artificial ends up imposing an image of ourselves within us.

A piece of research into origings, ancestry, the roots that pull us into the earth and give us the strength to fly … a mane of hair inhabited by a mythological being, the symbiosis between our animal and sensual natures …a process of growth.

INSTITUT STOCOS / Muriel Romero, Pablo Palacio
( INSTITUT STOCOS / Muriel Romero, Pablo Palacio )

ncubatio es a piece that combines dance, music, models of artificial intelligence, virtual reality and techniques of movement capture as part of a performance.
Incubatio is based on the archaic practice of the same name, which had its roots in Western Asia, on the distant fringes of the eastern Greek world.
A cure that consisted in lying down in a sacred place, a cave or temple, so as to enter into a state beyond everyday consiousness until you had a vision or powerful dream. Inspired by this practice, Incubatio is a performance piece that recreates these archetypal dreams or visions, with the help of innovative technology especially designed for this project. The piece combines dance, interactive music and visual imagerey.

CUERPOS CELESTES/HEAVENLY BODIES

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)

Azkonatoloza
( Azkonatoloza )

CUERPOS CELESTES/HEAVENLY BODIES
a documentary project of science and fiction.

In this residency AZKONATOLOZA will continue researching their new piece CUERPOS CELESTES, the second part of FALLA, a new series of live arts research projects by these two artists.

After eight years travelling around Abya Yala with our Trilogía Pacífico, tracing the cracks left by colonialism and capitalist barbarism on the life of the planet, delving into the consequences of unregulated extraction and the geopolitical relationships that underpin all this, our questions were piling up:

Now what? Where are we headed?
What surface should we scour?
Which voices should we listen to?

The first clue was to be found in the last verse of Teatro Amazonas: “Now, what we have to do is stop and listen.”

Listening was the starting point for the new journey we embarked on with Canto Mineral, the opening piece of FALLA, the series of documentary research, speculative reality and science fiction that we are currently involved in. Because after years giving our attention to human stories and voices, who should we listen to now?

What if it wasn’t the humans, or the animals, or even the trees that would have the last word, as Joan Brossa wrote? What if it was the stones, the minerals or the electromagnetic waves?

Javier Martín
( Javier Martín )

Beltenebros is a choreographic project by Javier Martín, in a variety of settings as regards art, performance, sound and installation, which embodies themes such as the syndrome of the cancellation of the future of the post modern identity and its techno-religious leanings, in a critical analysis of the background noise of our age, as an effect of the inertia of cognitive rituals that now lack any communal significance. Beltenebros considers the reinterpretation of the dysphoric body, familiar to our times, through practice with anatomical votive offerings - representations in wax, metal or wood of different organs and other parts of the body - and the installation on stage of a particular “hangman’s game” as a framework for the action and its pauses; not showing the game or the votive rites, but producing alternative meanings through them. Each offering makes, with the sound, an approach to the body, a kinetic situation. This is a dance of the macabre in collaboration with the pianist Haruna Takebe and the camerawoman-performer Masako Hattori.

La Verema
( La Verema )

L'ARREPLEGADA is a cultural and social inter-disciplinary festival. The first was held in 2022. It is organised by the group La Verema, in close collaboration with L’animal a l’esquena, where the event takes place. The festival covers a wide range of artistic disciplines, from performance arts, graphic plastic arts, visual arts and literary arts to music.

The aim is to provide a kaleidoscopic and plural space in which to share, get to know and encourage the work of young and emerging artists. The gathering hopes to be a catalyst, offering a creative interchange between the participants, who come from a variety of branches of creation, thus encouraging the formation of a decentralised and active artistic network.
