A scene from 'Oskara'

All the rhythms and movements of dance in La Quinzena metropolitana

The cycle will bring a variety of performances to Barcelona and five neighbouring towns.

A new cycle, named the Quinzena metropolitana de dansa and devoted to dance, will take place until 18 March in a number of venues in the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona and the neighbouring towns of Badalona, Cornellà, Esplugues, L'Hospitalet and Santa Coloma de Gramanet.  The dance genres on display range from classical dance to contemporary styles such as hiphop, jazz and musicals, as well as dances with traditional roots. And the chosen venues also vary, running from museums and metro carriages to the great outdoors.

Among the performances coming up over the following week are two consecutive shows at Mercat de les Flors on 6 March. First up, (sweet) (bitter) has been defined as a musical impossible love poem interpreted by Thomas Hauert as the expression of a conflict between the happiness that arises from following an ideal and the torment of knowing that this ideal will always be unattainable. It will be followed by Pulse Constellations by Grabriel Schenker, which is based on an electronic music composition by John McGuire, titled Pulse Music III, which dates from 1978. Also at the Mercat de les Flors, but in this case from 8 to 10 March, Thomas Hauert, accompanied on stage by five other dancers, will be performing Inaudible, a condensed and highly detailed choreography that juggles with intellectual art and popular culture, and direct seduction and deceptive expectations.

Changing venues, on 8 March, SAT! Sant Andreu Teatre will be hosting The OtraDanza company, directed by Asun Noales, in a performance  that transports dancers and spectators to songs and divine rites from different peoples and cultures, to "explore the long process of experiences that take place from the moment that the soul, vital energy, leaves its ethereal condition to materialize in a body, and until it is reunited with its immateriality, after the body dies", as the choreography, named, Sacre is introduced.

The last performance on the week’s Schedule is Oskara by Kukai Dantza, which has won three Max awards. This scenic installation explores Bsque culture from its origins to the present. It can be seen at Teatre Joventut in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat from 10 to 11 March.
