HEM DE PARLAR / Young Blood
A woman, a man and a teenager are the members of the family in Hem de parlar, an inclusive dance-theatre street performance; and three energetic, creative and engaged young dancers are beaten down by the nature of our society. They’re prepared, but... are you?
"HEM DE PARLAR", Cia. Vero Cendoya
A woman, a man and a teenager make up the family in Hem de parlar, a snapshot that conjures up phrases that dance, letters that move and arrange themselves, movements that intertwine and silences that express more than words ever can. An inclusive dance-theatre street performance that is the result of Vero Cendoya’s extensive experience of working with people with functional diversity. Emotions that transform and open up new world.
Vero Cendoya combines performing with choreography and painting. She has worked with Catalan and Spanish creators such as Sol Picó, Àngels Margarit, Peter Mika and Andrés Lima as well as with international artists and companies like the Inbal Pinto Dance Company (Israel), Hans Werner Klohe, Steptext DA.CO (Germany), Le Boussinière (Switzerland) and Veronika Riz (Italy). In 2008 she created her own company, which stands out for having collaborated with artists from different disciplines such as drama, painting, drag, music, poetry and even football.

"Young Blood", Cia. Arnau Pérez
Through contemporary dance, influenced by the protest language of urban dance, this small-scale dance format cries out for the regenerative power of the new generations. Three dancers, three “young bloods” challenging the audience. “Young blood, we see you.” They’re prepared, but... are you?
