Auditorio de Tenerife hosts M, dancer Élida Dorta’s residence in the NUMAcircuit
An open day will be held tomorrow at 6:00 pm and the work will be showcased on Saturday at 7:30 pm
Auditorio de Tenerife, under the Cabildo de Tenerife’s Department of Culture run by councillor Enrique Arriaga, is hosting the residence of dancer and creator Élida Dorta as part of the 2020 Festival de Creación y Experimentación de Canarias NUMAcircuit. Last Monday the artist started developing M, the piece that will be shown to the public in Sala Castillo on Saturday the 21st at 7:30 pm. Also, tomorrow, Thursday, the 19th there will be an open day at 6:00 pm. Both events are free of charge but can only admit a very reduced a number of people.
Élida Dorta, a classical and contemporary dancer, will present M, her artist residence that looks into the transforming capacity of art. It is a personal and political work in which Dorta reflects on life, maternity, becoming aware, and on pain being inherent to constant change.
M is a blank piece of paper that holds concepts, experiences, and myths. The dancer has opted for using artistic tools to decode life and transcend pain in this residence. Élida Dorta’s talent is joined by pianist and composer Rebeca Píriz, dj and electronic music composer Dave Watts Riot plus costume designers Nikka XxX and Dosi Andrade, in addition to the photography of ENCARNEVIVA. Dimás Cedrés is the lighting designer of M, which also features Javier Arozarena as assistant director.
Admission to both sessions is free although only a reduced number of people can be admitted. On entry your personal details will be requested in order to meet the guidelines of the health authorities. Once the show has started you will not be able to leave until it has finished. Entering the auditorium implies that the user unconditionally accepts the contents of the measures implemented by the Auditorio de Tenerife to deal with COVID-19, like wearing a facemask.

NUMAcircuit is a platform to create and spread new forms of artistic expression. Its main goal is to provide a space and audience for artists, technicians and collectives who communicate by means of contemporary, experimental languages, showing their work coherently and set in a context. This annual festival, that builds its programme with shows and training activities of very different nature, seeks to communicate the artists’ reflections, encouraging the curiosity and active participation of the audience.
