The show by La Phármaco and the Centro Drámatico Nacional, is performed on Thursday and it is based on the life of María Teresa León

 

Auditorio de Tenerife, a cultural venue under the Cabildo de Tenerife’s Department of Culture run by councillor Enrique Arriaga, is putting on Una gran emoción política at Sala Sinfónica on Thursday, the 15th at 8:30 pm. The show is by La Phármaco, coproduced with the Centro Dramático Nacional and is part of the 2021 FAM Special.  Tickets cost 8 euros and can be bought up to two hours before the show begins.

Luz Arcas, Málaga dancer and choreographer and founder of La Phármaco, has penned this work that is inspired by María Teresa León’s autobiography Memoria de la melancolía, that deals with the decisive years of our recent history, the time of the Civil War and exile: years marked by political fervour, the myth of the Revolution and the belief in utopias. 

Rather than having historicist aspirations the show aims at revealing the archetypal and universal qualities of those events with the company trying to portray the political emotion that drives a people to believe in their right to intervene in the history of their country, as if the future belonged to them. In Luz Arcas’s view, this is about “the emotion that the disasters of the 20th century -the wars, totalitarian regimes and their consequences- have undermined”.

Dance and physical activity, the songs and breathing, the author’s original texts and original music performed live and inspired by European popular themes evoke María Teresa’s memories: fundamental episodes of her life, like saving the Museo del Prado, the activities in the trenches of the Teatro de Guerrillas, political and social events like the participation of women in the war and key concepts such as the mass or the collective body, exile and memory. 

Through her memories, La Phármaco does not intend to dance María Teresa León’s life but her view of the world that was marked by an unrelenting empathy with the disadvantaged classes full of contradictions, and her failed dream of the triumph of a Republican and Communist Spain. From exile, María Teresa hoped to return one day to a country free of Franco’s dictatorship. When she finally returned in 1977, Alzheimer’s disease prevented her from realising where she was. 

On Saturday, 17 October FAM open-air performances start every half hour from 5:30 pm. The shows included areExpectations will not kill you, by OSA+MUJIKA; Idi-Begi, by Proyecto Larrua; Colectivo Glovo’s Mapa; Kintsugi, by Iron Skulls Co, and Young Blood, by Arnau Pérez. More information and tickets are available on www.famtenerife.com.

The Government of the Canary Islands’ Espacio La Granja collaborates with FAM  by housing some residencies and performances, 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.

La Asociación Teatro Nova representa en el teatro municipal esta historia sobre mujeres que rodearon al marqués

El programa Teatro Aficionado del Cabildo de Tenerife, dependiente del área insular de Cultura que dirige el consejero Enrique Arriaga, estrena mañana [viernes 9] a las 20:30 horas en el Teatro Príncipe Felipe de Tegueste el espectáculo Madame de Sade. La nueva propuesta de la Asociación Teatro Nova es una obra de Yuko Mishima publicada en 1965 y para esta versión, con entrada a seis euros, cuenta con la dirección de Irene Pérez.

Madame de Sade habla de las mujeres que rodearon al Marqués de Sade, con atención especial dirigida sobre su esposa, Renée, y su suegra, Madame de Montreuil, la figura esencial en manipular su arresto y encarcelación. Se dibuja el retrato de seis mujeres que, desde distintas visiones, rememoran al Marqués de Sade.

Tres personajes son reales y formaron parte de la vida del marqués: Madame de Sade-Renée, que representa la fidelidad; Madame de Montreuil, el orden social; y Anne, el candor y la falta de principios. Y los otros tres personajes son ficción: Madame de Simiane, la moral; Madame de Saint-Fond, la perversión; y Charlotte, la criada, el pueblo.

La obra recoge tres momentos concretos a lo largo de veinte años y finaliza en plena Revolución Francesa, cuando Sade vuelve a su casa. El marqués nunca aparece en la obra, pero está continuamente presente en el mundo de estas seis mujeres.

Actúan en esta obra: Sandra González (Madame de Sade- Renée), Myriam García (Madame-Montreuil), Beatriz Fernández (Anne), Fátima Gutiérrez (Madame-Saint-Fond), Pepi Correa (Madame-Simiane) y Mónica Clark (Charlote). El sonido corre a cargo de MAD, la iluminación es de Alberto García y el vestuario y la escenografía lo firma la propia compañía.

El espectáculo de este programa, que gestiona Auditorio de Tenerife, cuenta con la colaboración del Ayuntamiento de La Laguna, Centro Ciudadano de Gracia y el Ayuntamiento de Tegueste.

Carmela Visone & The Grooves and Imazighen will play at the Sala de Cámara, while Matt Reverb performs at the Hall

Auditorio de Tenerife, a venue under the Department of Culture of the Cabildo de Tenerife run by councillor Enrique Arriaga, is hosting three of the concerts of the 12th Canarias Jazz Showroom, a leading event featuring groups from the island. Carmela Visone & The Grooves are playing on Friday, the 9th and Imazighen on Saturday, the 10th. Both concerts start at 7:30 pm in the Sala de Cámara. The Swing Fest closes the showroom with Matt Reverb. Tickets are available on www.auditoriodetenerife.com at a general rate of 10 euros with discounts available. 

The showroom opens with Carmela Visone & The Grooves, a group that has played jazz, blues, R&B, Funk and Samba since 2015. They are currently immersed in a new music project, recording new songs, experimenting with new sounds with the collaboration of other musicians including Sissi del Castillo, percussion; Oscar Hernández (trumpet) and Fran Rodríguez, saxophone, always loyal to the group’s personal brand. A gospel choir brought the first two members together, Carmela Visone and Pablo Díaz (keyboard), who were later joined by Jonás Álvarez (drums).

Imazighen makes Gnawa music, one of the main genres of Morocco’s folklore. It is very rhythmic and has a characteristic chant in which the main voice makes invocations that are answered by the choir, on a simple melody played with a guembri. The band plays this music with respect for tradition, but they allow it to blend with more current trends such as jazz, rock, or even other roots music.  The instruments used include the guembri, a three-string instrument with a bass sound; the tbel, a drum played with a curved stick; and qraqeb, the characteristic metal castanets.

Admission to the Swing Fest is free but there is a limited number of seats available. It is held at the Auditorio’s lobby and is a tribute to swing, jazz manouche and the style as a whole that emerged in the US in the 1930s and translated into a culture that included music, dance, clothes, food, etc. and above all joie de vivre.  The star this year is Matt Reverb, a Canarian-German musician who lives in Tenerife. The Showroom‘s programme includes swing, so Reverb is playing some of his songs adapted for the occasion, plus classical swing pieces with his own arrangements. 

Tickets for Carmela Visone & The Grooves e Imazighen concerts can be booked via the websitewww.auditoriodetenerife.comand 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.

Canarias Jazz Showroom started in 2008 so this is its 12th year running. In this time, groups have played on stages both on the islands and abroad, having travelled to Tenerife, Gran Canaria, La Palma, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, El Hierro, Madrid, Barcelona, London, Brussels, and Maastricht. 

Canarias Jazz Showroom aims to give a chance to all Canarian creators to exhibit their work, get the public to meet them and encourage Canarian artists and groups, boosting their work forward.

´Paula Quintana’s sold out LA CARNE, opens the busiest week in the festival, which goes on until December. 

Cabildo de Tenerife’s councillor for culture, Enrique Arriaga, presented the 2020 FAM Special at a press conference today. The festival will run until December and includes sixteen theatre and street shows by national companies. Enrique Arriaga, in this first press conference as Culture councillor,  highlighted that "this is a new era that comes with a steady, long-lasting project for Tenerife culture, with the new technologies playing a fundamental role".

Along with Cabildo de Tenerife’s councillor for Roads, Mobility, Innovation and Culture,  the island director of culture, Alejandro Krawietz, and dancer and choreographer Paula Quintana revealed the details of the 10th FAM.  Quintana’s show LA CARNE, opens the busiest week of the festival tomorrow, the 7th.

Arriaga explained that "FAM 2020 was meant to take place in June but had to be restructured and made longer to cater for the needs of this sector". He also highlighted Quintana’s professional curriculum and said that she "is a Tenerife artist that is well-established nationally" and revealed that "no one will be unmoved" by her new piece. 

For his part, Alejandro Krawietz stressed his current position: "with this new responsibility I’m privileged to take on, we’re going to start a lasting cultural scheme, which is what Tenerife creative companies need". Regarding FAM, he pointed out that "this festival started in 2010, so it’s not new to crisis, and its goal since 2019 has been to show the contemporary quality of national dance in Tenerife". "There’s quite a lot of dance activities on the island, that’s why our intention is for the crisis to affect dance as little as possible and reinforce it through FAM", Krawietz stated.

"We’ve tried to include as many companies as possible in the programme, that’s why there may be newcomers in the next weeks, especially Canarian companies’ shows”, the island director explained. When programming special attention was given to work done in artistic residencies in agreement with the Cabildo de Tenerife’s grants given to creators for professional stage productions. 

So, although the current programme ends on 6 December, Canarian dancers will continue to be supported with new proposals that are being carried out in residencies and productions to be shown at FAM shortly. Finally, the island director was clear that "all the necessary measures have been put in place to make sure that taking part in the festival is safe".

Paula Quintana admitted that “I’m extremely pleased and proud these leading national and international companies can come to Tenerife as part of the FAM programme". As for her premiere, LA CARNE, she explained that "the piece is about the arrival of a new time, a new era when the flesh is more dignified, and so are the bodies that have raised again and again throughout civilizations". Fiction, music, and text are brought together in this piece  of dance, a discipline that is "fundamental in our time when we need art as a way of imagining, thinking, asking yourself questions." she revealed.

You can enjoy the force of live dance at Sala Sinfónica, Sala de Cámara and Auditorio de Tenerife’s grounds, and also at the Canarian Government’s venue Espacio La Granja. Information on the shows and tickets, at 8 euros, on www.famtenerife.com.

The Government of the Canary Islands’ Espacio La Granja collaborates with FAM  by housing some residencies and performances, 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. 

In 2019, FAM changed its approach to become a platform of national dance while facilitating Canarian companies a space for creation and exhibition. The Auditorio turns into a multipurpose space during the festival to welcome the different Spanish contemporary dance shows.

The shows included are: Expectations will not kill you, by OSA+MUJIKA; Idi-Begi, by Proyecto Larrua; Colectivo Glovo’s MapaKintsugi, by Iron Skulls Co, and Young Blood, by Arnau Pérez. The day ends at the Sala Sinfónica where Instituto Stocos is performing Marriage of Heaven and Hell at 8:30 pm.On 21 October at Espacio La Granja Instrucciones para mejorar la vida, by Compañía Provisional Danza in coproduction with Compañía Nómada, will show the result of bringing together four veteran performers and choreographers while the setting is a homely living room.  


Marco Vargas & Chloé Brûlé bring to FAM Los cuerpos celestes, a series of landscapes where five performers meet and get together to try to learn about the undefinable. Duos, trios, quartets, and quintets will be displayed on 26 October at Auditorio’s Sala Sinfónica to reflect on the place of each individual and their relation to the other. 


The mountain, the truth and the Paradise is the new show by the company Mal Pelo, made up of María Muñoz and Pep Ramis. The latter is giving a solo performance on 1 November at Sala Sinfónica. This show emerges from the need to build a very personal fiction, to update previous works and look into today’s artistic interests. 


The last FAM show this year is on 6 December. It is Lava Compañía de Danza’s new show: Kick the bucket, a choreography by de Iván Pérez. In addition, Auditorio de Tenerife’s company will also dance Bending the walls, a Korzo Theater and de Nederlands Dans Theater production.

After cancelling in March, the concert by the Portuguese singer and the Barcelona producer of Rosalía is taking place next Thursday

 

Next Thursday, the 8th at 7:30 pm Lina and Raül Refree are giving a concert at Auditorio de Tenerife. The music duo reinvents traditional fado by using the acoustic piano and synthesizers to add an electronic touch. Tickets to enjoy this concert at the Sala de Cámara can be booked on www.auditoriodetenerife.com at a general price of 15 euros with discounts available.

This show was meant to take place on 29 March but had to be put off because of the lockdown. Auditorio de Tenerife now presents the definitive date of the concert by the Portuguese singer and the Barcelona producer, who has worked with artists like Rosalía and Silvia Pérez Cruz.

Nominated for Best Album at the European Commission’s Music Moves Europe Talent Awards 2021, Lina and Raül Refree are two musicians who build an intense, touching and very special music relationship. Raül Refree, one of the most innovative European producers, was impressed by Lina’s voice when he heard her sing at the Club de Fado in Lisbon. Lina, a fado singer with a classical training, two records with Sony Music and an expert in Amália Rodrigues, selected some of the diva’s fado classics and they immediately got down to work in a joint project.

Refree Raül framed Lina’s voice in analogical clouds with brilliant arrangements and a completely novel approach, that is, adding an electronic touch to fado, which underlines its universal scope. You can now enjoy the result at the Auditorio de Tenerife with Refree at the acoustic piano and Lina’s voice while they both use synthesizers during their performance.

The Chamber Series at Auditorio de Tenerife de, which is under the Department of Education, Youth, Museums, Culture and Sport of the Cabildo de Tenerife, run by councillor Concepción Rivero, has programmed the concert Divertimento by the Ensemble Hespérides on Thursday, the 1st at 7:30 pm. Tickets, at a general price of 15 euros with discounts available can be booked on www.auditoriodetenerife.com

The Ensemble Hespérides, who is playing at the Auditorio de Tenerife for the first time and is returning with Temperamentos on 29 October, is made up by Raquel Martorell, flute; David Ballesteros, violin; Macarena Pesutiç, viola; and Kathleen Balfe, cello. The repertoire includes works by Joseph Haydn, Gaetano Brunetti, Bernhard Heinrich Romberg and Wolfang Amadeus Mozart.

Entertain, show a carefree, joyful style, in short: amuse you. That is the goal of this kind of music from the Classical period, and that is what the Ensemble Hespérides wishes to convey. Through their historical interpretation using original instruments, they will transport listeners to this period thanks not only to the original repertoire but also to the performance, as they have steeped themselves in its history and treatises to learn about its ins and outs and decode this type of music, which is apparently simple, but it is in the details where the key to its simplicity and amusement is to be found.  

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.
