Exterior area of Auditorium of Tenerife is hosting an outdoor dance show this Saturday
The Catalonia-born dancer Magí Serra and the Slovenian dancer Anamaria Klajnšček present the duet Cossoc at 7:00 p.m.
The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island's Council that is managed by its island's Minister of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. On Saturday 24th of September at 7:00 p.m. it offers a dance duet outdoors within the framework of the FAM Otoño (Autumn Moving Arts Festival). The performance Cossoc takes places outside the cultural centre with free admission until full capacity is reached.
The show by Magí Serra and Anamaría Klajnšček features hypnotic choreography full of suggestive images of what two bodies in constant balance can do. It is a research initiative on the complexity and simplicity of a relationship; a window of observation and curiosity for the viewer; a blurred boundary between public and private.
Establishing an intimate relationship, the two performers form a strong connection; a place where they can challenge their environment and become one with space. The piece brings the public down a path of silence and reflection. Perhaps the piece is nothing more than the search for a place to find yourself easily.
Magí Serra and Anamaria Klajnšček met in 2018 as part of the creative process of Tramaby Roser López Espinosa. In 2019 they began a creative process that ended with the creation of Cossoc in 2021, their first long project thanks to the co-production of the Fair of Tàrrega and El Graner, which emerged out of their shared interest to take dance out of the usual space of a theatre. Since then, they have performed in both international contexts as well as in local programmes for audiences of both adults and children. In addition to the duo, they have created a video dance that is currently touring around different festivals of this kind, and they also do workshops on their partnering proposal.
FAM Otoño is offering several shows that will take place between September and December on the stages of the Auditorium of Tenerife and at the La Granja Space of the Government of the Canary Islands, where the next dance event takes place. It will be on 30 September at 20:00 with the solo The very last northern white rhino, by Gaston Core. Performed by the dancer Oulouy, this piece emerged out of the news of the death of the last northern white rhino, leaving a mother and its daughter as the last members of its species, with no chance of continuing.
The Moving Arts Festival is an initiative by the Auditorium of Tenerife for contemporary Spanish dance, which comes alongside the art circuit promoted by the INAEM (Spanish National Institute for the Performing Arts and Music) and developed by the Spanish Theatre Network: Dance on Stage 2022.
