From the 27th of November to the 7th of December the dance festival will offer a programme focusing on upcoming young talents from eighteen European dance houses
From the 27th of November to the 7th of December the Mercat de les Flors will host a new edition of SÂLMON, movement and creativity festival. In an effort to make the most of its participation in the European Modul-dance project, this year’s festival will focus on upcoming local and European creators, with the result that, over a period of ten days, the programme will include a wide variety of formats and aesthetic proposals in an attempt to offer audiences the widest possible spectrum of contemporary creativity as applied to the language of movement.
The programme will include new productions by Catalan and Spanish artists such as Albert Quesada, Aimar Pérez Galí and Manuel Rodríguez as well as international figures the likes of Jefta van Dinther, Tânia Carvalho and Mara Kline. For her part, local talent Núria Guiu, a graduate from the Barcelona Institut del Teatre, will present an adaptation of a piece she created in 2012 for the Norwegian National Company for Contemporary Dance.
In addition, this edition of SÂLMONULTRAinnocència, by Los Corderos, and Islàndia, by the chorographer of the La Veronal dance company, Marcus Morau. In the first of these, the company emphasises the inter-relationship between text and physical theatre, while the second offers a reflection on the value of image, the concept of reality and our current societal model.
The festival will also be making room for music, with a concert by the band Za! adapted especially for the occasion, as well as other activities, including a workshop entitled Mapping international resources, in which a group of dance house directors and international distributors will create a map of the creativity scene as it stands in Europe today. This activity is free and will be presented in English without simultaneous translation. Prior inscription is required at firstname.lastname@example.org.
