FAM 21 welcomes tomorrow La Quebrá with the show 'GET NO'
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.
