Pan y Rosas
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.

We all live in a box
Three individuals are intertwined in the journey of their lives through dance, live music and boxes with which they interact. What do the boxes of our life consist of? The work contemplates how we define the lives we live by creating those invisible walls that contain our ideals and beliefs. How do we deal with the boxes that make us up, challenge us, limit us, stop us? How do we find ourselves and others in the midst of all these boxes?
The creations of Ambae Company, founded in 2019 by the dancer and choreographer Arina Lannoo and the musician and composer Tito Ripoll, speak about human and social themes, constructing a language that combines dance, music and scenography. Their first production, Connection, which had its premiere at Dansa Metropolitana in 2021, questioned our lack of connection with ourselves and tried to reconnect with the essence of being. We all live in a box, which premiered in May 2022 at the Imaginarius Festival in Portugal, is their second creation, performed in Spain, Portugal and Belgium.
