OTEMPODIZ / Pan y Rosas
Otempodiz is the result of an exchange and creation project between Euskadi and Mozambique, which shows the power of dance for experiencing time in an absolute present; and Pan y Rosas flamenco, contemporary and urban dance, in a production about the right to live, not to only exist, inspired by the words of the American feminist trade unionist Rose Schneiderman.
In the West, time is measured, bought, sold, planned and organised... but there is almost never enough of it. By contrast, in Africa time is experienced, it is something you have, something you do, an asset that is almost never lacking. Otempodiz is the result of an exchange and creation project between Euskadi and Mozambique, which shows the power of dance for experiencing time in an absolute present.
ERTZA was created in 2004, directed by the dancer and choreographer Asier Zabaleta, with the aim of opening up a new space for choreographic creation, without ties or conventionalisms, creating projects in collaboration with artists from other disciplines. Their productions pose questions about human and social contradictions, inviting the audience to reflect on current themes. ERTZA has presented its productions in the following countries: China, the Philippines, Brazil, Peru, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Mexico, Israel, Russia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Germany, France, Italy, Greece, Poland, Mozambique, Portugal and Spain.

"Pan y Rosas" by Tina Martí
As Rose Schneiderman said: “We want the right to live, not just exist. We must have bread, but also roses. What we ask is that they not look at us, but that they see us”. Pan y rosas fuses flamenco, contemporary dance and urban dances in a piece about the right to live, not simply to exist. A show inspired by the words of the American union feminist Rose Schneiderman.
Pan y Rosas is performed by Ámbaar Murgia, Esther Calderón, Paloma Ramos (Aina Lanas) and Tina Martí, who seek to create harmony between urban, contemporary and flamenco dance with Cristina López music. Under the supervision of Tina Martí, together with the bailaora Katy Fernández and Aina Lanas, Pan y Rosas is the first project from this union of artists who strive to communicate a single message, using various languages.
