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.
