Animal de séquia offers a contemporary rereading of popular Valencian culture, revisiting its roots, in order to make a journey there and back, a return to the most primal and earthly. Directed by Sol Picó, with eight dancers on stage and live music, the piece takes the audience from today’s complex vital rhythm, full of throbbing vibrant stimuli, to something more organic, more natural and authentic: the mystical essence of the Valencian people.
L E V E - A Light and Easy Vanishing Event is a choreographic project that takes the idea of lightness and its contradictions to investigate inconsistency, fleetingness and temporariness in relation to our body and our interactions. Where does the body stand in this context? And dance? What is the minimum, the lightest there must be, for them to exist? How do we deal with the weight of bodies, of sweat, of choreography, of repetition? How much does an 8 weigh? How many crucial decisions am I prepared to put up with? How much weight does a commitment entail?
Elkarrizketa Ilunak (Conversations in the dark) is an innovative production in which Metamorphosis Dance investigates, through choreographic composition, the possibility or impossibility of communicating. What happens when two people converse in the dark? By decontextualizing a conversation, the type of message changes and in the proposal by Igor Bacovich and Iratxe Ansa the dynamic actions and reactions of conflict, affection and anxiety are expressed non-verbally, physically and bodily.
Hidden concludes the trilogy formed by Kokoro (2015) and iU an Mi (2017), reflecting on identity. This latest piece casts its gaze over the things that define us, but which – over time – have been hidden under the veil of the unconscious. Our present blurs the past. And life, which never stops and pushes us without respite, leaves a trail of memories in its wake. Memories that pile up between the folds of the brain, as does dust underneath furniture. They remain in the shadows, hidden under web of deceit, of dreams, of subjective delusion.
