Enjoy dance with the kids through the family shows for Dansa Metropolitana
One of the goals of Dansa Metropolitana is to bring all audiences into closer contact with dance. Little ones can also enjoy dance with ten family shows for them to discover this year in the different cities in the Barcelona metropolitan area.
The first week sees the Teatre Principal in Terrassa offering Plàcton, a show with choreography from Anna Rubirola, along with the Col·lectiu Big Bouncers company, while the Auditori de Sant Ildefons in Cornellà will be offering a show by the choreographer and puppeteer Antonella D’Ascenzi entitled Filar.
Sunday 19 comes packed with a diverse array of options, such as the urban dance and visual art of Brodas Bros and Desilence with Doji at the Teatre-Auditori in Sant Cugat, as well as the dance, puppets and visuals of La gata que volia canviar la història by the Thomas Noone Dance company at the Teatre Margarida Xirgu in Badalona.
Young children who have not yet had their first contact with dance can also enjoy shows such as Paisatges. Estudi #1 by CreaMoviment, an artistic experience inspired by the work of Pablo Palazuelo at the Centre Cívic Jardins de la Pau in El Prat or Natanam by DA.TE Danza, where contemporary dance, theatre and original salt drawings from southern India fuse at the Atrium Viladecans. The Teatre Auditori in Granollers is also offering a show from the Roberto G. Alonso company, Marúnica, delving us into the world of the fascinating painter from the Generation of '27, Maruja Mallo.
The final weekend for Dansa Metropolitana offers us a chance to enjoy three shows which young children and those accompanying them are sure to enjoy. At Barcelona’s Mercat de les Flors we can go on a fascinating journey with Cometa by Roser López Espinosa, at the Teatre La Faràndula in Sabadell we’ll discover LOOPby Aracaladanza, the best dance show at FETEN 2022, and at the Atrium Viladecans there’s a premiere of the new show by choreographer Sol Picó reflecting on immigration through the eyes of a child, Macarron Power.
