During the ninth edition of 2019, FAM took a turn by becoming a platform for national dance where, in addition, Canarian companies were given a space for creation and exhibition. The Special 2020 Edition of the FAM covers the months of July, September, October, and December. Scheduled for June 2020, the tenth edition of the festival has had to reinvent itself due to the health crisis, extending its length to cover the needs of the sector and being especially sensitive to the work of artistic residencies to respect the creators benefiting from the assistance for professional stage production offered by the Tenerife Island Council. FAM offered a 2021 Extension for January with a week full of recently created contemporary dance numbers and it continues on with new proposals thanks to the support of the Canarian dance sector.

FAM offers during the last-day wide participation from the Canary Islands. Daniel Abreu, who aspires to three Max Awards, stands out.

 

The show ‘Kenophobia’, by the company Osa + Mujica, wraps up the Arts and Movement Festival organised by the Auditorio de Tenerife, a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by its Director of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. During the last day, wide participation from the Canary Island stands out with Natalia Medina, Javier Cuevas, Paula Quintana, Nómada and Daniel Abreu. Once more, Abreu was nominated for the Max Awards under three categories.

OSA + MUJIKA is comprised of three pieces that last fifty minutes; it is a colourful work, full of images, with a physical language, with dynamic and energetic movements. For those who suffer from kenophobia, empty spaces are terrifying. The play begins with a big party. By its end, the players start feeling lonely and afraid. In line with the company's work concept, special importance is given to the costumes, to the presentation in video and photography.

The tickets to see Natalia Medina's company and her family show Petitdanza are sold out. It takes place at Espacio La Granja from 10:30 am onward. This proposal invites you to take a journey through fantasy, where movement and expression come together to let your imagination fly.   This work is dynamic, joyful and vital. The bodies move to the rhythm of beautiful melodies that touch our hearts and take us to a state of peace and well-being.

Daniel Abreu won the National Dance Award in 2014. He participates in FAM 21 with his proposal 'El hijo' (The son). The Tenerife-born choreographer considers that this work has layers that move around a concept that captures his curiosity: “descendants”. 'El hijo' (The son) talks about our link with parents. The show can be seen in Teatro Guimerá at 12:00 noon, during which smoke and strobe effects are used. Abreu has been nominated to the Max Awards under three categories for this show: Best dance performance, best choreography and a best male dancer. 

The joint proposal by Javier Cuevas and Paula Quintana titled 'Esto que tú ves' takes place outside the Auditorio de Tenerife from 6:30 pm onwards. The tickets are sold out. 'Esto que tú ves' is a dance piece for street and non-conventional spaces. It is about the poetic and cinematographic gaze, about the work and its frame, about the loving encounter between attention and life. It is like a journey to celebrate the human capacity to compose reality and to be moved by it.

Nómada company features again during this new FAM edition. This time it will be with 'El pastor' (The Minister). At 7:00 pm in the auditorium’s Chamber Hal, the choreographer and dancer Roberto Torres represents a religious, political or cattle mass guide. When people feel frightened, he manipulates them as a way to motivate the group.

During this last day, an exclusive session titled "Work in Progress" is aimed at programmers. Several artists will show their latest works in progress: ‘Sutil’ by Laura Marrero, ‘Schwanengesang (Der Held)’, by Javier Arozena, ‘Tun/La’ by Carmen Macías and ‘La orilla de mi piel’ by Acerina Toledo.

Tickets are sold through the website www.famtenerife.com, where you can also find all the information about the shows. Each venue has implemented its own prevention measures against the pandemic, which can be consulted during the purchasing process. 

FAM is sponsored by the INAEM (Spanish Ministry of Culture and Sports) and the programmes ‘Danza a Escena’, are sponsored by the organisations 'Red Española de Teatros' and 'Circuito Acieloabierto'. Likewise, the Canary Islands Governments collaborates by offering the venue Espacio La Granja; the Council of Santa Cruz de Tenerife by offering the theatre Teatro Guimerá and the University of La Laguna by offering the venue Paraninfo. The FAM festival has obtained the EFFE Seal (Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe) granted by the European Union. The EFFE Seal is a quality distinction awarded to festivals with an artistic mission, a commitment to local communities, and a strategic vision at the European level.

Pau Aran, Compañía Sharon Fridman, Isabel Vázquez, Pol Jiménez y Roser López Espinosa feature on the third day of this festival.

 

The company 'La Intrusa', distinguished with the National Dance Award 2015, presents the show “It's a wrap (Kubrick is dead) during the FAM Festival. The performance starts when six characters from Kubrick's filmography receive the news of his death. Damián Muñoz expects to win the Max Award for his performance in this play. This artistic proposal can be seen on the 5th of June at the Teatro Guimerá from 12:00 noon on. The show takes place as part of the FAM Festival organized by the Auditorio de Tenerife, a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by its Director of Culture, Enrique Arriaga.

On Saturday at 10:30, the programme starts with Lettre d'amour in Espacio La Granja. The piece is inspired by desire or the appetite for what is absent; This piece, based on texts by the Peruvian poet César Moro and the dramaturgy by Alberto Conejero, gather on stage the dancer Pau Aran - nominee for the Max Prize - and the actress Consuelo Trujillo.

This double programme outdoors of the Auditorio de Tenerife begins at 5:00 pm with the company Sharon Fridman and the show '147 abrazos' (147 hugs) to continue 30 minutes later with Laika, by Isabel Vázquez. The first piece is an extract from the play 'Dosis de paraíso' (Dosis of paradise). The work arises from the need to deal with love and from the relationship between two people. With this proposal, Isabel Vázquez demands the right to be odd and peculiar as human values; this enables each individual to reassert that each one of us is a special and unique being.

At 6:30 pm, Pol Jiménez will play ‘La Oscilante’ (The Oscillating) at the auditorium's Chamber Hall. This piece revolves around the concept of 'otherness', of moving in unison through curvy and straight paths, through linear and discontinuous ways, thus revealing the constant vibration of the binary.  On that third day, the last show will be performed at the Symphony Hall, where the company Roser López Espinosa offers at 8:00 pm the piece Trama (Plot). The show is like a concert with different voices, tunings and discordant notes. Dancers interweave their bodies and relationships to create a physical score of interdependencies and mutual trust.

Tickets are sold at a price of 2 to 8 euros through the website www.famtenerife.com, where you can also find all the information about the shows. Each venue has implemented its own prevention measures against the pandemic, which can be consulted during the purchasing process.

The second day also includes performances by Leonor Leal, Álvaro Esteban & Lorena Nogal, Daniel Doña, Paula Quintana and Daniel Morales

 

On Friday the 4th of June, the company La Quebrá will offer the performance 'GET NO' at the Teatro Guimerá. This show is included in the second day's agenda of the FAM 2021 (Arts of Movement Festival). The festival is organised by Auditorio de Tenerife, an institution linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the island's Minister of Culture Enrique Arriaga. This second date of the festival also includes performances by Daniel Morales, Paula Quintana, Daniel Doña, Álvaro Esteban & Lorena Nogal and Leonor Leal.

The work GET NO deals with satisfaction and aircraft. It is a passing place in which to contemplate, a non-place. A million passable nooks and fleeting airport-like encounters. People who stop, brief stories that are observed during a blink of an eye or that can last forever. Time passes by, but the emptiness does not stop. GET NO reflects the wish to continue, to understand, to change, a constant dissatisfaction.

For the second day, the FAM 21 has programmed six shows that will start at 10:00 am at the Paraninfo de la Universidad de La Laguna, where Daniel Morales will perform 'El vuelo'.  He proposes to change routines, warning us that borders are invisible lines that we can cross with our minds. In this show, these lines draw the sky that connects with the imagination.

LA CARNE by Paula Quintana, was premiered at the last edition of the festival. It is the second part of a trilogy about the rebirth and elevation of bodies. She premiered 'Las alegrías' in 2019 as part of FAM. This proposal can be seen at 12:30 in Espacio La Granja. It revolves around Camille's autobiographical account: a future, anonymous and resilient woman who stands up to the world alongside her peers to usher in a new era of human and planetary transformation. 

At 5:00 pm, the Centro de Arte La Recova will welcome the Dance Company Daniel Doña and the show 'Campo cerrado'a cartography-like performance that revolves around concepts like identity and diversity. From the dramaturgy point of view, it tackles key cultural issues of a difficult historical time: the Spanish post-war period. This choreographic work aims to show an alternative way of interpreting our history; it explores in depth how the different post-war avant-garde movements developed during this historical period. Creators of the time, with their stroke of genius and talent, probably made it possible to happen; they applied different artistic perspectives that consolidated and went beyond a period that has been traditionally considered as a cultural backwater.

Álvaro Esteban and Lorena Nogal will perform the show Cualquier mañana-Tríptico, including a solo for each dancer: 'El elogio de la fisura' (Lorena Nogal) and 'Antípodas' (Álvaro Esteban), to conclude with 'Cualquier mañana', a coreography by Esteban and Laura Aris. This proposal will we shown at 5:30 pm in the Castillo Hall (Auditorio de Tenerife).

The second day will wrap up the Festival with the Flamenco dancer Leonor Leal and her show Nocturo, with Alfredo Lagos playing the guitar and Antonio Moreno playing percussion. The show takes place at the Chamber Hall, Auditorio de Tenerife. This show, which starts at 7 p.m., is a fantasy where two musicians a dancer who weave together on stage a route through insomnia, memory and longing.

Tickets are sold at a price of 2 to 8 euros through the website www.famtenerife.com, where you can also find all the information about the shows. Each venue has implemented its own prevention measures against the pandemic, which can be consulted during the purchasing process.
