After performing in Barcelona and Málaga Auditorio de Tenerife’s company closes their autumn tour in A Coruña on Friday

 

Lava, the dance company of Auditorio de Tenerife, under the Cabildo de Tenerife’s Department of Culture run by councillor Enrique Arriaga, will be in Valencia and A Coruña this week to end their autumn tour. The Canarian company will perform Beyond and Bending the Walls at 9:30 pm at the Teatro Principal de Valencia to open the Dansa València, the Instituto Valenciano de Cultura dance festival. They will be on the stage of the Teatro Rosalía de Castro in A Coruña on Friday, the 13th.  

After visiting Barcelona and Málaga, Valencia is Lava’s next destination where they will open the Dansa València 2020. The festival was originally scheduled for March but had to be postponed due to the health crisis. Lava will close their autumn tour in A Coruña on Friday, 13 November. They will perform their double programme in the Teatro Rosalía de Castro at 8:30 pm as part of the venue’s regular contemporary dance programme. Dancers performing in the Lava tour include Fabiana Mangialardi, Emiliana Battista Marino, Amanda Rubio, Javier de la Asunción, Javier Arozena, and Adrián Díaz.

Bending the Walls, by choreographer Fernando Hernando Magadan, is an exploration of the world of restrictions and limitations in the search for happiness, freedom and understanding. The piece explores the physical and psychological limits of the individual and the world around them. It is a metaphor about the psychological, physical, and emotional forces human beings can approach in order to reach beyond palpable reality, overcome sorrow and escape into the world of the imagination.

Beyond, by Virginia García and Damián Muñoz of La intrusa, deals with the experience of searching through the emotional landscapes of memory, presenting a scenario of uncertainty that forces us to constantly create or reflect on our own life journey, on the landscape that every individual, consciously or fortuitously, gradually builds.

Lava Compañía de Danza is an Auditorio de Tenerife project that was set up in 2018 with Tenerife dancer and creator Daniel Abreu (Premio Nacional de Danza 2014) as artistic director. The company has a special interest in contemporary dance, and it focuses on building a repertoire of works by renowned international artists.

Six dancers with a strong presence on the stage, technically sound and versatile bring to life creations that share a contemporary dance language and other codes of today’s art discourse.

This co-production between Spain, France and Canada will reach us on Sunday, starring Mal Pelo’s Pep Ramis

 

 

On Sunday, the 1st at 7:30 pm the Sala de Cámara of  Auditorio de Tenerife, a cultural venue under the Cabildo de Tenerife’s Department of Culture run by councillor Enrique Arriaga, is hosting The Mountain, the Truth & the Paradise. This contemporary dance show is part of the Festival de las Artes del Movimiento FAM. You can buy tickets, at a single price of 8 euros, up to two hours before the performance starts. 

This is a co-production of Catalonian company Mal Pelo with Festival de Tardor de Catalunya Temporada Alta 2017, the Théâtre de la Ville in Paris, France, and Agora de la Danse in Montreal, Canada.

The piece emerges from the need the protagonist, dancer Pep Ramis, felt to building a very personal fiction, to update the experience of his latest work and research in his present artistic interests. Working solo at 50 also involves revisiting the tools gathered throughout a long career creating for the stage. 

The Mountain, the Truth & the Paradise is a poetic world that wonders about the meaning of the divine and the vulgar, spirituality and ignorance, beauty and banality. The performer’s ability to transform in a blank, empty space and the accuracy of gestures and the voice are the fundamental lines in the dramaturgy of a piece that displays a changing, exciting, highly stimulating journey. 

Throughout the creative process, Ramis has had the collaboration of Jordi Casanovas and María Muñoz as directors, August Viladomat in the lighting design and Fanny Thollot who penned the soundtrack. 

Dancer, actor and stage director, Pep Ramis has been a member of Mal Pelo, along with María Muñoz since 1989. The dance company bases its work on the constant search of languages, which they have used to create countless shows that have toured the world and have won major prizes. In 2001 they promoted the centre for creation and interchange with other art forms L’animal a l’esquena. 

Tickets can be booked via the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com and by telephone on 902  317 327 Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, except holidays.

Marcos Vargas’s and Chloé Brûle’s company perform this choral score in seven movements

 

The 2020 Special FAM presents Los cuerpos celestes, a flamenco-inspired journey across the universe penned by Marcos Vargas’s and Chloé Brûle’s company. The show takes place on Monday, the 26th at 8:30 pm at the Sala Sinfónica of Auditorio de Tenerife, a venue under the Cabildo de Tenerife’s Department of Culture run by councillor Enrique Arriaga.

Los cuerpos celestes is a sensory journey from the ethereal to the corporeal that offers a series of landscapes where the five performers meet and get together to find out what the indefinable is. Through duos, trios, quartets, and quintets the artists reflect on the place they each have in relation to the other. 

Judging by the rich contrasts between flamenco and electronic music, the Sevillian company makes up a fresco about human beings in which every individual is a fundamental though insignificant piece on the great universal board. 

Since 2005 Vargas & Brûlé have made up a creative team that has a language of their own taken from flamenco and dance. They have been included in the most relevant national programmes and have shown their work at major international events. 

Audience members are kindly asked to come to Auditorio early enough to enter the theatre gradually. On buying the tickets, users accept the measures implemented at this Cabildo cultural centre to tackle COVID-19, such as wearing a face mask or coming only with people you live with. The full measures and the AENOR-certified contingency plan are available on Auditorio’s website.

Lava, Auditorio de Tenerife’s dance company, will visit several Spanish cities this autumn with their double programme Bending the Walls, by choreographer Fernando Hernando Magadan, and Beyond, by Virginia García and Damián Muñoz of La intrusa. Their first engagement is at the Sant Andreu Teatre SAT in Barcelona where Lava is performing today, Thursday the 22nd at 8:30 pm as part of the Catalonian theatre’s 2020/2021 dance season.

The tour of the dance company of Auditorio, a cultural venue under the Cabildo de Tenerife’s Department of Culture run by councillor Enrique Arriaga, is taking place in October and November. Barcelona, Málaga, Valencia and A Coruña will welcome Lava, that started rehearsing on 12 October at Auditorio’s Sala Castillo meeting all the safety and hygiene measures. “The participation of Auditorio de Tenerife’s company in this national tour is a very interesting platform to consolidate their project”, the Cabildo’s councillor of culture Enrique Arriaga pointed out. He also said that “even with the restrictions and at the difficult time culture is going through, we wish to support participations that reinforce the work of projects like our company’s on stages where they can show their work”.

The autumn tour goes on next Monday, the 26th at 8:00 pm at the Teatro Cervantes in Málaga, where Lava will take part in the Festival Danza Málaga 2020. On 10th November, the Canarian dance company will reach Valencia to perform at the city’s Teatro Principal at 10:00 pm. This time they are included in the programme of the 2020 Ciclo Dansa València that should have been held in March but had to be put off due to the health crisis. 

A Coruña is the last destination of Lava’s autumn tour.

The dancers taking part in the tour are Fabiana Mangialardi, Emiliana Battista Marino, Amanda Rubio, Javier de la Asunción, Javier Arozena and Adrián Díaz.

Bending the Walls is an exploration of the world of restrictions and limitations in the search for happiness, freedom and understanding. Through this piece, the physical and psychological limits of the individual and the surrounding world are explored. It is a metaphor about the psychological, physical, and emotional forces human beings can approach in order to reach beyond palpable reality, overcome sorrow and escape into the world of the imagination. 

Beyond deals with the experience of searching through the emotional landscapes of memory, presenting a scenario full of uncertainties, which forces us to create or reflect on our own life and on the landscape every individual shapes for themselves either consciously or unconsciously.

Lava Compañía de Danza is a project of Auditorio de Tenerife that was set up in 2018, under the artistic direction of Tenerife-born dancer and creator Daniel Abreu (Premio Nacional de Danza 2014), to boost contemporary creation. It focuses on building a repertoire of works by renowned international artists. 

The six dancers have a strong stage presence, are technically proficient and versatile to bring creations to life that share contemporary dance language plus other codes of the current artistic discourse. Physicality, poetry, and commitment. These pieces have already attracted a wide audience and are creating new ones through the experience of dance and its context.
