Contemporary dance and electronic music to reflect on traditional group practices, in which the body is the main means of exhibition.

This live contemporary dance and electronic music performance explores the practices of Western traditions that sacrifice the body out of esteem, belief and tradition in order to be part of a community within a festive celebration. A reflection on the continuity, from one generation to another, of traditional group practices in which the body is the main means of exhibition.

Laia Santanach is a Barcelona-based choreographer, dancer and teacher who since 2018 has been directing, her own dance company which takes her name. Her creations include the 2016 solo Ballant ballàvem, and since 2017 she has been interested in working with live electronic music, creating Rèplica, which was a finalist for an Institut del Teatre award. Since 2018, she has been focused on exploring tradition, and created ÀER in 2019, which won the Delfí Colomé Award, was a finalist in the Max Awards for best choreography, and also a finalist in the Dansacat Awards for sound space. Recently, in 2022, she reached a creative peak with Tradere, which premièred and corproduced at the Mercat de les Flors. Her creations have toured Spain, France and Italy, and have received support from institutions such as the Ballet National de Marseille, the Mercat de les Flors and the Teatros del Canal.
