Blanca Tolsá’s first solo work explores, through contemporary dance, the constant dialogue between our desires and our actions.
Through contemporary dance this show investigates the origins of the desire that moves the body to understand why its forms end up corresponding to a common imaginary. In this first solo work, the dancer from Valencia wonders about her inertia and breaks down every detail, to thus break out of her conventions and explore new patterns of herself. A production that invites the audience to perform an exercise of temporary disconnection through discontinuity, mutation and fantasy: an unfolding of reality where the real and the unreal are aligned and distanced.
Blanca Tolsá, a graduate from the Institut del Teatre’s Conservatori Professional de Dansa, began her career as a dancer with ITdansa. Her most outstanding projects include Flamingos Cèl·lula#1 of the Mercat de les Flors choreographed by Albert Quesada; the piece Wu Wei by Raquel Klein for which she was awarded the Butaca Prize for the best dancer in 2020; Moaré premiered at the Grec Festival and choreographed by Ariadna Montfort; and the collaboration with the Italian company Zappalà. In 2019, she began her own research into the language of the body and the voice. She was the resident of La Caldera in 2020, the Centre Cívic Barceloneta and Roca Umbert, and she is currently also working on projects with other choreographers.
