Data sheet


This new piece by the Basque company speaks about how to reach beyond our limits and break away from established dogma, as well as women's freedom of choice. An intense contemporary dance duo performed by two women who, despite the burden of what they have inherited and learnt, show us a strong feminist message about how women can live the life they choose and desire, whatever that may be.

The LASALA contemporary dance company, directed by Judith Argomaniz, was created in 2013. It focuses on the continual investigation of physical language, based on current aesthetics. Their productions aim to address and reflect the concerns of the entire company. They have been invited to a number of festivals and many of their productions have won national and international awards.

Marea Danza

This piece starring five dancers revisits Valencian popular dance from a contemporary perspective. Five women, upright and interconnected, dance looking to the future as they create an ode to life and the land. Like five pieces of clay, they participate in the traditional rite of turning the body in order to become energy, power and emotion. The resulting piece, an approach to folklore in which this unique company connects with their roots, won the award for best street show at the 2021 AAEE IVC awards.

Marea Danza is a flamenco and Spanish dance company created in 2014 that seeks to bring these disciplines closer to contemporary creation. And it does so in all aspects, giving equal weight to dramaturgy, dance, stage design and image through a modern stage language. This is its approach not just in Roda, but also in other shows such as Relieves, Amelia (winner of a 2018 FETEN award) and Rebel·lió (best children’s show at the 2021 AAEE IVC awards).
