Contemporary dance performances Moaré and La piel vacía to be performed the evenings of 24 and 25 May
The Choreography Awards given by Barcelona’s Theatre Institute are designed to promote the work and careers of up-and-coming creators. This year’s edition of the prizes sees the collaboration of Sant Andreu Teatre, SAT!, which will be hosting two of the performances selected for the competition on 24 and 25 March. Each piece has a duration of approximately 20 to 25 minutes.
Moaré by Ariadna Montfort is scheduled to begin at 8.30pm and will feature Blanca Tolsà, Hugo Marmelada, Ioseba Yerro and Àngela Boix, who will invite the audience to accompany them on a journey that sees them constructing and transforming their identities as a consequence of the interaction they configure between them on the stage, highlighting in this way the implacable law of impermanence and constant change. This performance is accompanied by live music and was won the Theatre Institute’s Dance Award in 2016. Following it is La piel vacía, with choreography and stage direction by Paloma Muñoz, featuring Raquel Klein, Laura Lliteras, Gemma Miró, Núria Navarra and Amanda Rúbio. These five dancers, all of whom are dressed in latex, and a series of microphones on the stage, give voice to their movements. According to Muñoz, this piece is concerned with the skin as an outline, limit and medium and asks how we can live in it and how we can break through it.
On 24 March, following these performances, there will be a talk featuring the members of the featured dance companies.
