FAM Previous editions
Find here all the information on the previous FAM editions, the Tenerife's Arts of Movement Festival.
The 2021 edition took place from 3 to 6 June with 24 performances in five theatres: Auditorio de Tenerife, Espacio La Granja, Paraninfo de la ULL, Teatro Guimerá and the stage space of the Centro de Arte La Recova.
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 2020 + Extension 2020 (2021)
The FAM Special 2020 Edition took place during July, September, October, and December. It was scheduled for June 2020, but the 10th festival edition had to reinvent itself due to the health crisis and extended its length to cover the sector’s needs. The organisers were especially sensitive to the work of artist-in-residences. The creators benefited from the assistance offered by the Tenerife Island Council for professional stage productions.
Although it was foreseen to end the programme in December, the Island Council continued to support the Canary Island's dance along January 2021. The new proposals are currently being developed through in-residences and productions which will be exhibited within the FAM programme in the near future.
The 3rd Forum "La pedagogía se mueve" (Pedagogy on the move) was held on the 8, 9 and 10 November 2019.
The 2019 programme offered some thought-provoking topics and participatory encounters focused on a broad and diverse audience.
Through the International Arts of Movement Festival (FAM), Tenerife Island Council fosters this space to discuss thought-provoking topics. Likewise, dance and art movement pedagogues got together to celebrate the forum "Pedagogy on the move". It was aimed to provide spaces for dialogue to debate ideas and specific creative proposals. A special focus was placed on analysing how to include them and take advantage of them in all educational areas. The purpose was to find meeting places where new points of view are gathered together whilst generating creative synergies.
