The Auditorio de Tenerife schedules two dance shows, one for children under age of 5 and another that has won a Max Award
The family show ‘Malebable’ by Helena Lizari will take place this Friday, and the performance ‘Leira’ by Nova Galega de Danza next Sunday.
The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural venue linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the island's Minister of Culture Enrique Arriaga. It is scheduling two dance shows for this week. The first, Malebable, was created for children aged 0 to 5 and it will take place this Friday [6 May] in the Chamber Hall at 05:00 p.m., while Leira, winner of a Max Award, will be on at the Symphony Hall this Sunday [8 May] at 07:30 p.m.
Malebable is a sensory movement show that stimulates the imagination of children. The body and objects dance together creating a series of poetic images, an adventure of perception through textures, touch. It is a journey through sensations, the senses. The concept and the direction of this children´s proposal is by Helena Lizari, dancer, choreographer, a movement and psychomotricity teacher with a degree in theories and analysis of movement.
Tickets for Malebable can be purchased at a single price of €5 on the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com, at the auditorium's box office or by dialling the phone number 902 317 327 from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 05:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 02:00 p.m. Children who have not reached the age of two on the day of the show will not need to purchase a ticket if they are not going to occupy a seat.
Leira has been a finalist for the Best Dance Show 2021 and winner of Best Male Dance Performer at the 2 XXIV Max Awards for Performing Arts. The body and the earth strengthen their ties in this dance and music show that transports the viewer to the harsh beauty of fieldwork. The woman is at the centre of this telluric connection, repeated day after day in a never-ending succession of seasons. The sun and the rain, the wind and the landscapes <will be> inhabited solely by a human choreography of farming implements, of bodies that carry loads and drag loads, that dance among the furrows ploughed in the earth.
Leira is also the simple joy of work done with one's hands, with the courage that comes from the body and returns to the body; the celebration of a timeless and magical Galicia. Nova Galega de Danza is the result of a process that began in 1998 when the dancers Vicente Colomer and Jaime P. Díaz reached their artistic and professional maturity and decided to combine their efforts. They searched for new forms of expression that blend the Galician folk tradition with contemporary dance.
Tickets for Leira can be purchased at a single price of €8 on the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com, at the auditorium's box office or by dialling the phone number 902 317 327 from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 05:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 02:00 p.m. There are special discounts for the audience under 30 years of age, students, unemployed and large families.
Both shows are part of the program of FAM Primavera 2022 and they come alongside the artistic circuit supported by the National Institute of Performing Arts and Music (INAEM) and developed by the Spanish Network of Theatres: Danza a Escena 2022 The offer of FAM concludes on 14 May at 07:30 a.m. in the outside area of the Auditorio de Tenerife with three outdoor dance shows from the state programme Acieloabierto: Träd by Lamajara Collective; Am I what? by Elvi Balboa, and Du@l by Juan Carlos Avecilla.
