Three danced ways of looking at the aurresku converge in the museum: that of Jon Maya, a specialist in this Basque traditional dance, that of the master of contemporary dance Cesc Gelabert, and that of choreographer and flamenco dancer Andrés Marín.
A meeting between the museum and dance. This is the starting point of Soliloquios, a project devised and created by dancer and choreographer Jon Maya in which the dancers make an interpretation of the aurresku, the Basque traditional dance. Maya’s proposition is for each dancer to make an individual interpretation of this ceremonial dance. The three ways of looking at art converge in the same space accompanied by the sound installation of Luis Miguel Cobo.
Soliloquios came about as a result of an invitation by José Manuel Garrido, artistic director of preforming arts and music at the University of Navarra Museum, to dialogue with the work and exhibitions of Chlillida, Tàpies and Palazuelo.
The dancer and choreographer Jon Maya, a specialist in Basque dance, is the founder of the company Kukai Dantza. In this case he has followed the choreographic guidance of the great maestro of contemporary dance in Spain, Cesc Gelabert, and he has allowed himself to be accompanied by the choreographer and flamenco dancer Andrés Marín to develop the relationship between contemporary creation and its roots through movement.
