Los Perros / FAKE YOU
Two performers transform their bodies through dance, emulating the movements of dogs and showing the animal's capacity for resistance to any adversity, and a declaration of love to the imperfect copy, in which the gestures are repeated and re-signified eternally generating a shanzhai ritual.
"Los Perros", Led Silhouette + Marcos Morau
Two performers use their bodies like walking, ownerless dogs. They transform in a dance, sharing joy, but also pain, falling down and getting up again, rebelling through love, generosity and commitment. A piece full of symbolism that aims to reach a state of resistance, where we see how the duo overcome violence and deterioration together.
Martxel Rodríguez and Jon López direct Led Silhouette, a creative group of artists trained in various dance disciplines and influenced by contemporary art, in parallel with their activities in the La Veronal company.

"FAKE YOU" de Clàudia Mirambell
A declaration of love to the white label, to the imperfect copy. The white color of the staging it promises purity and neutrality, but bodies color the atmosphere with symbols. FAKE YOU is a ritual pagan shanzhai and probably useless, in which gestures and movements are eternally resigned, generating a repetition that gradually leads to the error and that ends up making visible the details that they make each body unique.
Clàudia Mirambell, a choreographer and architect, is drawn towards multidisciplinary creation through performing arts and performance art, exploring different formats that encompass body, space, visual arts and text. Her work, inspired by the potential of the absurd and of seemingly trivial details, but grounded in analysis and precision, explores mismatches, ambivalence and out-of-context moments to eradicate perceptual inertia. She works on her own creations and is also part of the Eléctrico 28 collective.
