Outsiderin” ist die Darstellung eines immer wiederkehrenden Gefühls in diesen Zeiten: ich falle in die Ungewissheit. Ein riesiges Netz gibt mir Halt, doch ich falle aus diesem Netz heraus und finde mich in einer anderen Umgebung wieder: am Boden. Nicht am Boden zerstört, ich finde mich letzlich doch zurecht, aber: was passiert mit mir als Mensch in einer Gesellschaft, wo die gefühlte Sicherheit schwindet, die sozialen Ungleichheiten wachsen und die mediale Kontrolle zunimmt?

Ich bin nicht nur ein Körper, aber wenn du willst, kann ich tanzen

This choreographic solo began as a dialogue between Blanca Noguerol and Pau Aran. A dialogue about identity and the exploration of their origins. Their shared path from Barcelona to Wuppertal. The circumstances inside and outside Germany. They have both trodden a similar path that coincidentally brought them together in the spring of 2005. Since then a friendship was forged from their shared roots, as they both tried to build foundations in a new place far away from home.

Inspired by the reminiscences of ‘Brocken’, this piece aims to observe the concepts of power, femininity and freedom in a new prism. To do that, we need to move forward together unknowingly, without first remembering what happened before. The paradigm that emerges suggests replacing the political with the poetic. At some point in the process texts from Federico García Lorca’s ‘Mariana Pineda’ appeared.

Magic realism and surrealism in action. Real stories in times of crisis, violence, as well as love and hope. The cruel and devastating reality of the Latin American farmers in relation with time, space and life itself. Customs and traditions, transformed by and confronted with contemporaneity.  

“WhARTever Should Happen –Eine Welt auf dem Kopf” recreates through metaphors and reflected images of humans, the aesthetic mirror of many cultures. The furious and infamous Latin America, with its cruel and infinite beauty, is seen through the experience of three artists with their own, very different journeys through South America, which ultimately led them to Europe.

While there is a very different reality ‘back home’, they have enjoyed and grown in their new context. Fernando Derks (Peru-Holland), Alexander Carrillo (Colombia) and Carolina Ortega (Venezuela) reflect on what makes them part of a seemingly homogeneous group within Europe: Latinos.

Full of irony, uncertainty and melancholy, they generate dialogues from artistic and political perspectives, drawing from cosmogony to the current political, social and environmental situation in South America today. The artists focus on our ‘human’ character, transcending ‘individual’ cultural specificities to reach the ‘universal’, the stories that are woven in the dramaturgy show us that, after all, we all have the same roots.

Blackout – memory rewind

Blind Mind

What happens when you realize that you are starting to forget, and memories and thoughts slowly disappear from your mind? If the images, smells, cognition, thoughts, stories, and language information in your mind are lost, logical thinking will also disappear, and when the emotional changes become more intense, which feelings will be deleted? How will we keep it? If you try to use different forms of communication, continuous repetitive exercises to slow down the forgetting, can such research prevent the continued degeneration of the brain after the disease? The antidote to memory continues Blackout, can there be a glimmer of hope in the future today?

Distópia Visuál [2.0]

artistic concept

Distópia Visuál come out from the desire to express personal experiences in the form of performance. Distópia Visuál investigate the effect on personal perception of a physical transformation. A surgery of both eyes leads toward a new way to look at reality to the subject. The choreography is a dialogue between two bodies and interactive space of light tubes. The bodies and the stage in which walk the public, change with light and darkness, motions and reflections, expressing the process suffered by the dancers.

T.I.G.R.E. intérieur

A piece from a feminin point of view to the world, expressed through the body language of an animal. Learning to become invisible when it’s needed to be invisible, becoming loud when it’s necessary to be heard. Becoming our own compass in this world, by taking a step out of our own shadow.
The tiger is approaching
Ready to defend
