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. You can also make an appointment to come to the box office on //www.auditoriodetenerife.com/en/contact-us and on 922 568 625, where they can also answer all your queries Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, except holidays.

The next FAM show this year is on 6 December with Lava Compañía de Danza’s new piece: Kick the bucket, a choreography by Iván Pérez. Auditorio de Tenerife’s company will also perform Bending the walls, a production of Korzo Theater and Nederlands Dans Theater. You can see all the information on www.famtenerife.com.

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. 

Collaborators with FAM include the Government of the Canary Islands plus the Spanish Theatre Network’s Danza a Escena scheme, and of the Circuito Acieloabierto of the street and unusual places dance network, both under the Spanish Ministry of Culture’s INAEM. The festival has the European Union EFFE label, (Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe) a quality mark that is granted to festivals with an artistic mission, commitment to local communities and strategic vision at European level.

The Ciclo de Cámara welcomes this flute, violin, viola and cello ensemble that will play Haydn, Hummel, Krommer and Mozart

 

The Ciclo de Cámara [Chamber Music series] of Auditorio de Tenerife, venue under the Cabildo de Tenerife’s Department of Culture run by councillor Enrique Arriaga, welcomes on Thursday, the 29th at 7:30 pm the concert Temperamentos by the Ensemble Hespérides. Tickets cost 15 euros and there are discounts available. You can buy them on https://auditoriodetenerife.com

The Ensemble Hespérides, that is playing at the Auditorio de Tenerife for the second time, is made up by Raquel Martorell, flute; David Ballesteros, violin; Macarena Pesutiç, viola; and Kathleen Balfe, cello. The repertoire includes London trio n.1 C Major by Joseph Haydn, Trio Eb Major s.30 by Johann Nepomuk Hummel, Flute quartet in F Major op.17 by Franz Krommer and Flute quartet in C Major k.285b by Wolfang Amadeus Mozart.

The title of the programme refers to the musical tuning systems. Since the Baroque period, irregular temperaments (French and German) gave each tonality special emotional characteristics, a fact that went on until the classical period, although equal temperament was gradually adopted until it became the norm in Western music during Classicism. This fact shows how stable the composition style was in this period: regular, balanced phrases whose difficulty lies on how tricky it is to convey all it comprises, although it is done with the naturalness and simplicity of a geometric shape that is apparently basic but has a wealth of content.

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. You can also make an appointment to come to the box office on //www.auditoriodetenerife.com/contactar and on 922 568 625, where they can also answer all your queries Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, except holidays.

La directora Anna Rakitina y el trompeta Manuel Blanco abordarán obras de Mozart, Hummel y Beethoven

 

La Sinfónica de Tenerife, que depende del Área de Cultura del Cabildo Insular de Tenerife, dirigido por el consejero Enrique Arriaga, responde al éxito de ventas de su próximo concierto de temporada, doblando función, que serán el jueves [día 29] y el viernes [día 30] a las 19:30 horas en el Auditorio de Tenerife. La directora Anna Rakitina debutará al frente de la formación tinerfeña abordando un programa compuesto por piezas de Mozart, Hummel y Beethoven. En esta ocasión el solista invitado será el trompeta Manuel Blanco.

La Orquesta del Cabildo interpretará, bajo la vigente fórmula orquestal reducida, La flauta mágica, Obertura, KV 620 de Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; Concierto para trompeta y orquesta en Mi mayor de Johann Nepomuk Hummel y Sinfonía nº 5 en Do menor, op 67 de Ludwig Van Beethoven.

Tras agotarse las localidades para el tercer concierto de la temporada 2020/2021, que tendrá lugar el viernes, ya pueden adquirirse las entradas para la segunda función, la del jueves, en la página web www.auditoriodetenerife.com y de forma telefónica en el 902 317 327 de lunes a viernes de 10:00 a 17:00 horas y sábados de 10:00 a 14:00 horas, excepto festivos. También se pueden conseguir, en el mismo horario, en taquilla solicitando cita previa en //www.auditoriodetenerife.com/contactar y en el 922 568 625, de lunes a viernes de 10:00 a 14:00 horas, excepto festivos.

Para disfutar de esta experiencia cultural es necesario llegar al recinto con antelación suficiente para realizar una entrada escalonada a la sala. La compra de las entradas supone la aceptación de las medidas implementadas por el centro cultural del Cabildo para hacer frente a la COVID-19, como el uso de la mascarilla o la asistencia solo con convivientes. Las medidas al completo, así como el plan de contingencia certificado por AENOR, se pueden consultar en la web del Auditorio. Tanto la cafetería GastroMag como el parking están disponibles.

La Obertura KV 620 de Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart es el tema que da inicio a su última ópera, La flauta mágica (1791), un fragmento que fue terminado tan sólo unos días antes de su estreno. La obra completa es un auténtico compendio de símbolos musicales relacionados con la masonería, reflejados en la tonalidad de Mi bemol mayor junto a Do menor, repetidos a lo largo de esta partitura; o en los tres acordes iniciales cuyo ritmo imita la triple llamada a la puerta del templo masónico en el rito iniciático. La melodía no es original de Mozart, sino que proviene de la Sonata para piano en Si bemol mayor, op. 24 nº 2 escrita una década antes, por el también masón, Muzio Clementi; siendo adaptada por el genio de Salzburgo a su característica escritura.

Johann Nepomuk Hummel firma el Concierto para trompeta y orquesta en Mi mayor, una creación de resonancias mozartianas con un lenguaje y orquestación completamente clásicos. El vitalista Allegro con spirito se trata de una extensa introducción dominada por el enérgico primer tema, que avanza entre estructuras vigorosas, hasta desembocar en un exigente Rondó final que requiere de una gran agilidad técnica por parte del solista. Hummel quiso mostrar con esta creación todas las posibilidades del nuevo instrumento inventado por Weidinger.

Sinfonía nº 5 en Do menor, op 67 de Ludwig Van Beethoven es una composición que resulta de un largo proceso de creación, entre 1804 y 1808, periodo que coincide con las guerras napoleónicas y la agitación política en Austria. Este tema posee una escritura dinámica y robusta, presentando un amplio abanico de experiencias sensitivas que abarcan desde la sonata del primer movimiento, al pastoral del segundo movimiento o el sorprendente cierre donde se escucha al unísono la orquesta en la brillante tonalidad de Do mayor.

La moscovita Anna Rakitina atesora una prometedora carrera como directora, tal como avalan los recientes reconocimientos internacionales recibidos en el Malko Conducting Competition en Copenhague (2018), “Deutscher Dirigentenpreis” Competition en Colonia (2017) o el TCO International Conducting Competition en Taipei (2015).

El trompeta ciudadrealeño Manuel Blanco alcanza su primer reconocimiento internacional en el prestigioso ARD Music Competition de Munich (2011) al obtener la calificación más alta de la historia de la competición. También ha conquistado diversos concursos como el Ciudad de Xátiva, Calviá, Moixent, Jeju (Corea del Sur). Como concertista, ha tocado con la Orquesta de la Radio de Baviera, Orquesta de la Radio de Munich, Philarmonisches Orchester Würzburg en Mozarfest, Hofer Symphoniker, Norddeutsche Philharmonie Rostock o la Orquesta Nacional de España.

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.

Auditorio de Tenerife’s dance company starts their Spanish tour that includes Barcelona, Málaga, Valencia and A Coruña

 

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. On 13 November they will dance their double programme at the Teatro Rosalía de Castro at 8:30 pm as part of the venue’s contemporary dance regular programme. 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.
