Tenerife International Moving Arts Festival

The FAM (Movement Arts Festival) aims to make Tenerife the centre of Spanish dance once a year. The strength of live dance is unleashed each year, turning Auditorio de Tenerife into multipurpose areas that accommodate different proposals from contemporary Spanish dance.

During the ninth edition of 2019, FAM took a turn by becoming a platform for national dance where, in addition, Canarian companies were given a space for creation and exhibition. The Special 2020 Edition of the FAM covers the months of July, September, October, and December. Scheduled for June 2020, the tenth edition of the festival has had to reinvent itself due to the health crisis, extending its length to cover the needs of the sector and being especially sensitive to the work of artistic residencies to respect the creators benefiting from the assistance for professional stage production offered by the Tenerife Island Council.

FAM offers a 2021 Extension for January with a week full of recently created contemporary dance numbers and it continues on with new proposals thanks to the support of the Canarian dance sector.

Collaborating with FAM is the Government of the Canary Islands and the "Danza a Escena" Programme of the Spanish Network of Theatres, as well as the "A cielo abierto" Circuit of the Street and Unique Space Dance Network, both part of the National Institute of Performing Arts and Music, which in turn is under the Ministry of Culture of the Government of Spain. This festival has the EFFE Seal (Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe) of the European Union, a quality distinction that is awarded to festivals with an artistic mission, commitment to local communities, and a strategic vision at the European level.

The company Nómada premières on Saturday "El pastor" ("The Shepherd"), and “Directo 9" ("Direct 9”) by the Galician company Pisando Ovos

 

Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the councillor of Culture Enrique Arriaga. Until Sunday [17th] it has programmed five contemporary dance pieces within the Arts of Movement Festival FAM. The pieces are A la escucha ("Listening"), NozomuEl pastor ("The Shepherd"), Directo 9 ("Direct 9") and The marriage of heaven and hell. They are all shown at 7:00 pm at the Chamber Hall ("Sala de Cámara") and the Symphony Hall of the Auditorium. Tickets, at a single price of eight euros, are on sale at www.famtenerife.com.

On Thursday the 14th the piece A la escucha ("Listening") of the creator and dancer from Tenerife Teresa Lorenzo, will be shown.  In this piece, the performer asks herself questions related to what we understand as improvisation, about how we react –consciously or not– to a stimulus. These concerns are explored on stage with her body as a tool and with music as a conductor. Lorenzo explains that “it has been proven that, when faced with a stimulus, intuition generates more information than is processed by the rational part of our brain: in that case, do we think when we improvise? Do we react as an animal would, by instinct?”

The Natalia Medina Dance Company will present on Friday 15th Nozomu, a piece with five dancers that was conceived during the lockdown due to the need and desire of its creators to dance, to dance together, to meet again. This work is a hymn to hope, a celebration of life, of sharing; it is a toast to our customs and needs, full of enthusiasm and laughter. "We all need the same thing; it is a free-flowing dance that floods over our souls and helps to heal these moments that are so painful" as they explain.

On Saturday the 16th there will be a double session that takes place in the same hall. It starts at 7:00 pm with the première of El pastor ('The Shepherd') by the Nómada company. The project arose during the lockdown when the actor, choreographer, and dancer Roberto Torres listened to the speech of a Mexican coach who works with multinational companies in the United States – a speech that surprised him. This motivational speech in which competition and being the best are valued sounds like manipulation to him and he considers it a danger because at no time does it talk of "us”. This makes him think that, in these times (as in others in history), dangerous leaders can emerge with truths that they cry or embellish to seduce the meek and to ignite the unsatisfied.

After a 15-minute intermission, Directo 9 ("Direct 9") will begin, by the Galician company Pisando Ovos – a piece targeting the new stage languages and which has a contemporary creative tone, and one in which the concert takes on the form of a meeting of today's society. The company's creation returns to one of the most important points of its work: full bodily dedication, based on daily actions and movements – on this occasion bouncing and jumping. This choreographic investigation revolves around the harshness of extreme physical states that wander toward a poetic composition through remnants of movement and personal essences which materialise through the dancers.

The week ends with the proposal from Madrid entitled "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell", by Instituto Stocos – that will be shown at the Symphonic Hall. "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell" is a cross-disciplinary piece inspired by the book of the same name by William Blake which combines dance, electroacoustic composition, interactive technology, and cognitive sciences in a stage format. The central core of Blake's original piece is the re-establishment of the union of apparently irreconcilable opposing pairs. On the one hand, the virtuous clarity of techno-scientific analytical thinking (reason, the philosophical logos; metaphorically, Heaven) and, on the other hand, the overwhelming creative forces of the imagination that emerge from bodily energy (intuition, the philosophical mythos; metaphorically, Hell). In this stage version of the piece, the union of these polarities, which seem antagonistic in nature, is embodied through the relationship and coupling of body and interactive technology.

Collaborating with FAM is the Government of the Canary Islands and the "Danza a Escena" Programme of the Spanish Network of Theatres, as well as the "A cielo abierto" Circuit of the Street and Unique Space Dance Network, both part of the National Institute of Performing Arts and Music, which in turn is under the Ministry of Culture of the Government of Spain. This festival has the EFFE Seal (Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe) of the European Union, a quality distinction that is awarded to festivals with an artistic mission, commitment to local communities, and a strategic vision at the European level.

Tickets can be purchased on the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com  and by phone dialling 902 317 327 from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., except holidays.

From Tuesday to Sunday, recently created national pieces will be presented, as well as the première of 'El pastor' ('The Shepherd') by the Nómada company.

 

Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the councillor Enrique Arriaga. Next week, the auditorium will host seven shows from the Movement Arts Festival (FAM). From Tuesday [12th] to Sunday [17th], there will be contemporary dance pieces recently created by national artists and the première of 'El pastor' ('The Shepherd') by the Nómada company. Tickets, at a single price of eight euros, are on sale until two hours before the start of each performance.

All shows begin at 7:00 p.m. in the Chamber Hall ("Sala de Cámara") of Auditorio de Tenerife. Except for those on the weekend, they last between 45 and 75 minutes. On Saturday there is a double session at 7:00 p.m. and 7:45 p.m., and on Sunday the event takes place in the "Sala Sinfónica" ("Symphony Hall"), also at 7:00 p.m.

The creator and dancer from Tenerife, Acerina Amador, opens the contemporary dance week on Tuesday [12th] with "Refugio" ("Refuge"), a piece that arises from the need to create a space for common reflection around the human/non-human animal theme.

On Wednesday [13th], Acerina Toledo presents the duet "Divino desierto" ("Divine Desert"), inspired by the islands of origin of both performers, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, which have served as inspiration due to their peculiarities and physical and internal deserts.

“A la escucha" ("Listening"), by Tenerife's Teresa Lorenzo, can be enjoyed on Thursday [14th]: a solo that is based on the artist's conclusion that to improvise is to solve an unexpected problem by making use of all the potential of human beings –thoughts, feelings, and intuition– to finally bring about a reaction.

The Natalia Medina Dance Company of Gran Canaria will present "Nozomu", a piece with five dancers that was conceived during the lockdown due to the need and desire of its creators to dance, to dance together, to meet again.

The company Nómada premieres, on Saturday at 7:00 p.m., "El pastor" ("The Shepherd"), a project that arose during the lockdown when the actor, choreographer, and dancer Roberto Torres listened to the speech of a Mexican coach who works with multinational companies in the United States – a speech that surprised him.
