Onde pousa a humidade
A solo that explores waiting and the body's relationship with past and present time, inspired by the Galician coastline, which suffers the most shipwrecks in Europe. A tribute to the women who always hope that the ocean will at least return the remains of their relatives to them. A piece selected for the Masdanza International Competition.
Dancer, creator and promoter of Galician culture. Her origins are urban, but she finally chose contemporary dance. She is part of the third and fourth generation to undergo international training at La Faktoria Coreographic Center. She works on hybrid projects with other audiovisual artists and musicians. Marcia is an artist who is inseparable from her personal motivations, body-community, territory-identity.

El Mar ens crida
A journey within ourselves to reflect on the environmental effects of disposing of plastics in the sea through dance. What would the sea tell us if it could speak? Through a dialogue between the individual and the environment, the audience will travel through different spaces, where they will meet marine beings trying to coexist in a changing environment that has been manipulated by humankind. A production in which young creators express their concerns about sea pollution through dance.
Dancing Human is a dance group created in 2020 as an artistic platform for young people based in Badalona. Silvia Pallisera leads the group. She has a long career behind her as a dancer, choreographer, teacher and organiser of a range of different shows. The group’s language and style of choreography varies with each of the dancers.

Community show: Me quiten lo bailao
Three groups of women from different generations come together to hear a song by Martirio and share their individual experiences. This is the starting point for the creation of Me quiten lo bailao, where each group has contributed their body and character to a musical score proposed by the choreographers Guille Vidal-Ribas and Jose Manuel Álvarez. The result is a shared ritual that vindicates bodies and dance as indispensable factors, demonstrating the urgency of listening.
The choreographers Guille Vidal-Ribas and Jose Manuel Álvarez come together again, a decade after they collaborated on an inter-generational, participative dance production. Blurring the boundaries of their own disciplines, urban dance and flamenco, they explore the things they have in common, such as community dance forms. On stage are three groups of non-professional artists from L’Hospitalet, Badalona and Sant Cugat, who have taken part in the creative process.
