Lava performs at Teatro Pérez Galdós after premiering at Auditorio de Tenerife
The new Auditorio de Tenerife’s resident dance company, Lava, is travelling to Teatro Pérez Galdós in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to present their first production on 5th December at 8:00 pm. Daniel Abreu’s group premiered yesterday, 2nd December at Sala Sinfónica in Auditorio de Tenerife, where more than 700 people enjoyed Bending the Walls, by Fernando Hernando Magadan, current director of Nederlands Dans Theater 2, and Beyond, by the company La Intrusa, winner of Premio Nacional de Danza 2015 [National Dance Award].
Both pieces are part of the Festival de Tenerife. Six dancers and their choreographers -chosen by the company’s artistic director, Daniel Abreu- practised the pieces on the island. Abreu is a Tenerife-born dancer and choreographer who was Premio Nacional de Danza 2014 and winner of three Max Awards 2018.
Lava dancers, who have been working daily in Sala Castillo in Auditorio de Tenerife since September, are Luis Agorreta (Cáceres), Javier Arozena (Tenerife), Emiliana Battista Marino (Naples, Italia), Samuel Déniz (Gran Canaria), Carmen Fumero (Tenerife) and Virginia Martín (Madrid). Lava is the section dedicated to artistic creation of Tenerife Danza, which is part of Instituto de Artes Escénicas del Cabildo, within Tenerife 2030 strategy.
Bending the Walls, a KorzoTheater and NDT production, explores the world of restrictions and limitations in our search for happiness, freedom and understanding: physical and psychological limits inside every individual and in the world around us. On the other hand, Beyond, a work by Virginia García and Damián Muñoz of La intrusa company, deals with the experience of searching through the emotional landscapes of memory, portraying an uncertain scenario that constantly forces us to create or reflect on our own life.
Tickets for this show can be bought at Teatro Pérez Galdós box office, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm; and at Auditorio Alfredo Kraus, from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm, or on the websites www.teatroperezgaldos.es, www.auditorioteatrolaspalmasgc.es, www.auditorio-alfredokraus.com.
