A dance about the finite nature of things and abstract ideas, such as the passing of time, featuring a duet of dancers, acrobatics and a fine sense of humour.
Only through acceptance of their finite nature can ideas such as the passage of time, human relationships, love and memories become imbued with meaning and value. Shalott reflects on all the things that are inevitable. It does so through contemporary dance and the acrobatics of the two dancers on the stage, and from places that may at times seem opposed, such as innocence and fear. This piece for audiences of all ages will get a laugh out of children while awakening new feelings and perceptions in adults.
Guillem Batlle and Vlad Ion are contemporary dancers who use humour as a tool to open up dance to a wider audience. Both trained at Varium Espai de Moviment i Creació and Fre3 Bodies. Their first production was Cosas serias (2021), a dance duet based on humour and absurdity. Their most recent work, Shalott, focuses on the creation of theatrical images with an atmosphere that allows abstract concepts to be explored using different perspectives.
