Auditorio de Tenerife presents, as part of its FAM Otoño (Autumn Moving Arts Festival) programming, the show “Cossoc” by Magí Serra & Anamaria Klajnšček, which will take place outside the facilities and have free admission.
“Cossoc” is a street dance duet. It is a collaborative effort between a male dancer from Catalonia and a female dancer from Slovenia. The show features hypnotic choreography full of suggestive images of what two bodies in constant balance can do. It is a research initiative on the complexity and simplicity of a relationship; a window of observation and curiosity for the viewer; a blurred boundary between public and private.
Establishing an intimate relationship, the two performers form a strong connection; a place where they can challenge their environment and become one with space. The piece brings the public down a path of silence and reflection. Perhaps the piece is nothing more than the search for a place to find oneself easily.
Anamaria and Magí started working together three years ago, and “Cossoc” is their first long piece. The piece stems from their common interest in taking dance outside the usual space of a theatre.

"Magí Serra and Anamaria Klajnšček dance as if they were one. Indistinct physicality; identical ability to support and equal energy from the two of them. In that sense, the genre doesn't matter at all – something which is contrary to what usually happens in this type of choreography."
