Quien baila su mal espanta:
What does dance do to us when we dance with others? Could dancing be the first gesture of joy? In this dance duet, two men embrace each other, look at each other, turn, jump madly and dance in a way that blurs the line between what we could recognise as ballroom dancing and movements that belong to the realm of emotions , relationships and the senses. It is the space between Joaquín Collado and Pol Jiménez. It's dancing to ward off evil.
Joaquín Collado is a creator, dancer and teacher trained in contemporary dance and ballroom dancing. In his career, he has been involved in creative spaces such as the Mercat de les Flors and the Graner in Barcelona, the Tenerife LAV, the Dansa-València and the CCN Grenoble, among others. In addition to his own projects, he also coordinates Paisaje, a dance festival in Villamalea, Albacete, along with Laura Viñals.

In this solo, the figure of the female percussionist is presented on the basis of three elements: gesture, sound and profile. She is born from the solitude of a body that places in the centre the object/body of the tambourine, including the skin and the sound. SIBIL-A proposes the figure of the performer as a transmitter, and shows how this figure evolves in the globalisation and de-sacralisation of things. The tambourine is the navel and the body is the channel of a song that is found in the Mediterranean basin, and which evokes aloud the scenes of the “Iudici Signum”, the Day of Judgement: from order to chaos, and from chaos to order.
Ancorae Danza is Andrea Jiménez, with an undergraduate degree in Choreography and Performance and specialisation in Spanish dance from the Institut del Teatre de Barcelona. So far she has created five shows: Luaº (2020), Edra (2022), Des(o)lados (2022), La Espiral (2023) and SIBIL-A (2024).
