A reflection on identity, a journey into the past through contemporary dance.
Hidden concludes the trilogy made up of Kokoro (2015) and iU an Mi (2017), which reflect on identity. In this last piece Lali Ayguadé takes a look at the things that define us, but which over time have been covered by the veil of unconsciousness. It tells the story of a man who one day stops to look back. A journey into the past through contemporary dance, in which he returns to his childhood home determined to uncover his past. A journey among his childhood ghosts and treasures. To find himself. To identify himself. To reconstruct himself.
After working with prestigious dance companies, in 2013 the director and dancer Lali Ayguadé formed her own company, with which she has achieved great recognition, both nationally and internationally, with pieces for the stage like Kokoro (2015), iU an Mi (2017) and Hidden (2020), and pieces for the street and non-conventional spaces such as Incognito, De camino al otro, Underneath and Gizaki. She has also worked with other artists like Guilhem Chatir (Here, 2018) and Joana Gomila (Sa Mateixa, 2018). Recently, Hidden won the prize for Best Choreography at the 2021 Butacas Awards.
