Four dancers seem to float in space wrapped in elegant white clothing decorated with lacework, but their dishwashing gloves remind us that this is nothing more than a false representation of femininity.
Night-in-gale is a site-specific dance piece that talks about femininity. About its marginalized condition and its relationship with the network and with fabrics, with concealment and transparency. About women’s relationship with temporary manual jobs and which, therefore, have no productive value. Night-in-gale aims to give substance to the immaterial, aerial projections – virtually intangible and ridiculously magical – with which femininity is continually represented.
The choreographer Ana Borrosa began her career in 2018, after finishing her Choreography and Performance studies at the Institut del Teatre. Her opera prima, PINKFISH, won the first prize and the audience’s prize at the 13th Choreographic Festival in Sabadell. In addition, the street version, PINKFISH-take away, was chosen to be part of the catalogue of the Red A Cielo Abierto 2019, and it won the Catalan Critics’ prize in the Street Arts category. Ana Borrosa was an emerging resident at the Graner-Centre de creació de dansa i arts vius, which is co-producing the site-specific Night-in-gale. She is currently developing her latest piece of work, entitled Jellyfish, a piece that was runner-up for the 2019 IT Dance Prize and which is part of a diptych together with PINKFISH.
For the functions of the show at the Centre d'Art Tecla Sala admission will be free with anti-Covid measures.
The functions of the show at the MUHBA Oliva Artés are included in the special programme Filatures al MUHBA Oliva Artés, presenting 20-minute excerpts from three different proposals: Night-in-gale by Ana Borrosa, UNRAVEL by Àngel Duran and Máquinas Sagradas by Juan Carlos Lérida.
This show is part of the Filatures program.
