A pulley and rope system tied at eight and half metres from the ground will make the main characters of Tristan and Isolde fly above the stage. You can enjoy this show on 2 and 3 February at 7:30 pm at Auditorio de Tenerife Adán Martín. The Ballet of Grand Théâtre De Genève is bringing a 33-strong team, 24 of which are dancers, to perform this Arthurian legend with music by Richard Wagner.

In addition to the aerial piece, where the ropes stand for the love that joins both lovers together, this production offers an array of stage elements that give it great visual attraction, as for instance an impressive spiral stair on wheels, big pieces of fabric used by the dancers, boards and wooden rods plus light bars. The floor at Sala Sinfónica del Auditorio will be covered in a specific kind of vinyl for dance shows measuring twelve square metres and brought in by the company.

The set travels to the island in a 12-metre long container. These elements convey the dream-like and metaphoric vision of the show’s choreographer, Joëlle Bouvier, who bases herself on this language to deal with the main topics of the story: love, disturbed love, betrayal, resentment and forgiveness.

Bouvier, founder of the L'Esquisse company in 1980, with this version of Tristan and Isolde, once again explores an iconic piece in Wagner’s music. After presenting her Romeo and Juliet, she now displays on stage moments of rupture as hatred rubs shoulders with the flames of extreme passion. Suffering and antagonism seem to be best resolved at night, at death.

The leading characters in Tristan and Isolde are two lovers: a princess, played by Madeline Wong, and a young man performed by Geoffrey Van Dyck. She is engaged to King Mark, interpreted by Armando Gonzalez Besa, and has a confidant, the Witness, danced by Sara Shigenari. Other dancers include Yumi Aizawa, Céline Allain, Ornella Capece, Angèle Cartier, Diana Duarte, Léa Mercurol, Tiffany Pacheco, Mohana Rapin, Lysandra van Heesewijk, Valentino Bertolini, Adelson Carlos, Andrei Cozlac, Xavier Juyon, Juan Perez, Zachary Clark, Simone Repele, Sasha Riva and Nahuel Vega.

Tickets for both performances can be purchased at Auditorio de Tenerife box office from 10:00 am to 7:30 pm, Monday to Saturday, on www.auditoriodetenerife.com here or calling 902 317 327.

Auditorio de Tenerife is bringing Grand Théâtre de Genève Ballet Company  with the show Tristan and Isolde, to be performed on 2 and 3 February at 7:00 pm in Sala Sinfónica. Tickets to enjoy a dance version of this love story are now on sale at 15% discount on the standard ticket price.

With this version of Tristan and Isolde, the choreographer of the production, Joëlle Bouvier, once more explores an iconic piece by Richard Wagner. After presenting her Romeo and Juliet, she now displays on stage moments of rupture as hatred rubs shoulders with the flames of extreme passion. Suffering and antagonism seem to be best resolved at night, at death.

Joëlle Bouvier has chosen to make some elements more abstract in order not to tell a story that rings too narrative or realistic. “To illustrate this epic drama, I’ve envisioned a simple scenery where a spiral staircase evokes a ship or a castle and a rope symbolizes the philtre that holds the lovers inevitably together”, the French dancer explains.

The piece is expressed through a more oneiric and metaphorical writing to depict its main themes: love, disturbed love, betrayal, resentment and forgiveness. That is why, as Bouvier explains, “some simple wooden planks recall the forest, a wall or a room and the great iridescent blue pieces of fabric that move evoke sea waves… All these stage elements suggest rather than show”.

The cast is led by Madeline Wong, in the role of princess Isolde, and Geoffrey Van Dyck, who plays young Tristan. Also, Armando Gonzalez Besa plays King Mark and Sara Shigenari is the Witness. Other dancers include Yumi Aizawa, Céline Allain, Louise Bille, Ornella Capece, Diana Duarte, Léa Mercurol, Tiffany Pacheco, Mohana Rapin, Lysandra Van Heesewijk, Valentino Bertolini, Natan Bouzy, Zachary Clark, Xavier Juyon, Nathanäel Marie, Juan Pérez, Simone Repele, Sasha  Riva and Nahuel Vega.

Tickets for both performances can be purchased at Auditorio de Tenerife box office from 10:00 am to 7:30 pm, Monday to Saturday, on www.auditoriodetenerife.com, here or calling 902 317 327. The launching 15% discount on the ticket price is available until 22nd December.

For the first time in the Canary Islands, Festival de Tenerife presents the dance show Las muchas,, by Companyia Mariantònia Oliver. The piece, which deals with age as a source of wealth, includes eight women aged over 70 who on Tuesday, 20th started a workshop offered by the company. The full show, an invitation to exalt femininity in those who are still willing to dance, can be seen at Sala Castillo in Auditorio de Tenerife on Friday, 23rd at 7:00 pm.

Las muchas is about the frailty old age involves, about bodies which no longer belong in the social corpus, which stop being in the official market but which are full of life, and above all, freer: bodies which breathe, weigh, dance, seduce, move and are positioned differently. Las muchas is the result of the need choreographer Mariantònia Oliver (protagonist of the piece) felt to listen and take in her experiences. The idea this proposal starts from is a fish shoal, an emerging system, an organism made up of many individuals making one single movement. It is also based on common images citizens put together, their identity because in the end, they all share similar emotions and situations.

Companyia Mariantònia Oliver is a contemporary dance company based in a small village in the centre of Mallorca, Maria de la Salut. Throughout her career she has worked different disciplines in projects for adults or families. In recent years, she was awarded the Premio Escénica 2010, the Premio Mejor Espectáculo Illes Balears 2011 and Premio Proyectos Escénicos Ajuntament de Palma 2009 and 2011.

Tickets can be bought at Auditorio de Tenerife box office from 10:00 am to 7:30 pm, Monday to Saturday; on the website  www.auditoriodetenerife.com, in this link or calling 902 317 327. You can also get 50% discount by showing at the box office a ticket for a Festival de Tenerife show you had previously bought.
