ROJAS Y RODRÍGUEZ - SPAIN 


AZUL VIDA (Blue Life) - World premiere Post-performance discussion July 31

Everything in life is possible if the flame of desire continues to burn in your soul. AZUL VIDA (Blue Life), the latest creation by world-famous flamenco duo Rojas and Rodríguez, will have its world premiere at the Suzanne Dellal Centre. The new work takes happiness as its starting point - something so simple and yet so complicated. AZUL VIDA is a new color that illuminates this great journey danced by the passion of Rojas and Rodríguez with live musicians. Travel to a new world of flamenco and movement through music and emotions, where you are invited not only to look, but to feel and, above all, be. Rojas y Rodríguez are known as Spain’s most dynamic flamenco duo. After 21 years of collaboration, they embark on the creative labyrinth that is AZUL VIDA, marking the beginning of a new phase and a continuation of the deepest respect and admiration for each other. Their philosophy is based on the search for a different way of understanding movement, creation, and stage approach, giving a new dimension in Spanish dance and flamenco. This work began in 1996 and has become a reference for new generations. They have brought to the stage the classic and the contemporary, farrucas, fandangos, alegrías, cowboys, and tailcoats, never allowing flamenco to be diluted.

MANUEL LIÑÁN - SPAIN 


Manuel Liñán
 Baile De Autor
 Post-performance discussion August 3

Baile de Autor is the dance of the premiere flamenco soloist and choreographer, Manuel Liñan. A director that dreams of a dancer dancing, Liñan presents a space in which the the author breathes life into each element: light, sound, song, guitar, music, and dance. It is a fantasy in which the separation between choreographer and dancer is erased. One person, two dueling roles, resulting in a world divided into different choreographies, having nothing to do with one another. It is a show that lives in the mind of the artist. A dream which he alone imagines and which we witness an awakening and the void. Manuel Liñán is a flamenco dancer, choreographer, and director. He has been invited to choreograph shows for companies such as the Ballet Nacional de España, Rafaela Carrasco, Teresa Nieto and Nuevo Ballet Español. He made his mark as a soloist with the premiere of TAURO in 2008. He later presented the shows MUNDO APARTE and SYNERGY, which were included in numerous prestigious festivals, such as the Festival de Jerez, during which he received the award for Best New Dancer in 2012. He has received numerous other awards such as the Max Award for Best Male Performer, the Flamenco Hoy Critics Award for Best Flamenco Dancer, the Critics Award at the Festival de Jerez, among others. His work tours to the most prestigious flamenco festivals: Festival de Nimes,, and Flamenco Festival London.

NOVA GALEGA DE DANZA - SPAIN 


SON Post-performance discussion August 6

SON is “to be.” SON is beyond definitions. In this groundbreaking performance from Nova Galega De Danza, a troupe of male dancers perform a hybrid of choreographic languages including traditional Galician dance, stylized Spanish dance, contemporary dance, and flamenco. In this sensual and riveting work they blend the old with the new, the masculine with the feminine, folk dance with the contemporary. “...We come here to meet one another. Those dancing, those who watch with the openness of the traveller, the ends of different branches which discover when bending towards the earth which supports them, the common trunk and the infinite roots, which continue to grow and change, which causes the branches to move because the roots continue to do so, and the branches cannot remain static if they want to contain life… And the artist remains open because they exist for him. Because, to him, they ‘are’ alive (SON).” - Marita Carmona Nova Galega de Danza was founded in Spain in 2003 and has developed a totally unique project, merging the styles of traditional Galician, Spanish and contemporary dance. Jaime Pablo Díaz, the company’s choreographer, is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Dancing, the School of Dance and Music of Galicia, and the Professional Conservatory of Dance in Madrid. As an interpreter, he has been part of the Etnográfico das Mariñas and the Ballet Galego Rey de Viana. He has also directed the Municipal Dance School Xuncos and Mulleres da end da terra where he won several prizes.

EMILIO OCHANDO Y COMPAÑÍA - SPAIN 


SIROCO

Post-performance discussion August 10


“SIROCO” is the dry, warm windstorm that sweeps from North Africa towards the center of the Mediterranean, reaching hurricane speeds. The show SIROCO is dedicated to this ebb and flow of wind, change and movement, pushing the limit of traditional dance and challenging labels and stereotypes. SIROCO features four male dancers dressed in traditional women’s flamenco garb, the long-tailed dress. Four pure flamenco elements are present: the shawl, the fan, long-tailed dress, and castanets. In all climates, these key elements come to life through the changing temperament of the wind. Along with three world-class musicians, they bring us on a journey through their own SIROCO. Emilio Ochando y Compañía was founded in 2012 and since won numerous awards and been praised by critics. Born in Valencia, Emilio Ochando performed with the Ballet Nacional de España which prompted his move to Madrid to continue his studies and graduate from the Royal Conservatory of Dance. He performed internationally in the corps de ballet and then as a soloist in many of the leading dance companies, including: Domingo Ortega, Rafael Aguilar, Nuevo Ballet Español and Aída Gómez. He continued to further his career as a dancer and choreographer performing all over the world in flamenco venues and as a guest artist. In 2015 he was invited to spend a year at Universal Studios in Japan and it was there he began working on his creation, SIROCO which was awarded with the two top prizes at the 2017 Talent Festival in Madrid..

COMPAÑIA SHARON FRIDMAN - SPAIN 


All Ways Post-performance discussion August 13
“Black bird, white dove, it is not fear that lives in the wind. Don’t stray from your nest and return to the font and quench your thirst.” All Ways explores the utopia of permanent harmony, a state reached after the resolution of personal conflicts and the discovery of our rightful place on this Earth. We all have before us multiple roads, but only one leads us to ourselves. Without a path we feel lost, we are filled with darkness and confusion, directionless, flying blind with no compass or stars to guide us on dark nights. In All Ways, the seven dancers are travelers, tracing out multiple paths that intertwine in the pursuit of harmony. Their inertia courts “harmony,” but they must cross unstable, sometimes tortuous, territories. The road they travel crosses five emotional landscapes: loss, searching, dreaming, falling in love, and the construction of conscience. Beyond the pilgrimage awaits the sky, the stars, the cosmos… the sense of being suspended in the unfathomable nothingness. The path may take us through places where everything is possible, where past and future shape a present dream, where love is inevitable, where we encounter ourselves. Sharon Fridman’s dancing knowledge is made up of Israeli folklore and contemporary dance. Born in Hadera, Israel, he settled in Madrid and founded Compañía Sharon Fridman in 2006. His career as a dancer started when he joined the Ido Tadmor Dance Company, based in Tel Aviv. Fridman’s performance career includes Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company and Vertigo Dance Company, among others. In 2000, he started working as a choreographer with the Phrasal group. In 2004 he joined Mayumaná Company as choreographer and artistic coordinator. His work has been presented by Paris Quartier d´Été, among others, and has received many prizes, among them the prestigious Max Award 2015.

KOR'SIA - SPAIN 


Cul de Sac
Post-performance discussion August 16


“The first step might come some day. As far away as possible.” 
- Samuel Beckett, The Unnamable Cul de Sac presents us with a community of strange beings confined within four walls, bound to a social pact and to unearthing the freedom in their hearts. Inspired by the universe of Juan Muñoz, the Spanish artist and winner of the prestigious Premio Nacional de Artes Plásticas who passed away in 2001, Cul de Sac exports the sculptor’s imagination. Infusing Muñoz’s lead-gray, monochromatic figures with life, and imbuing the tensions between individuality and society suggested by his installations with movement, Cul de Sac references its conceptual universe: the physical and mental limits that constrain the desire for fulfillment shared by all human beings. Kor’sia is a dance collective under the leadership of Spanish-based Italian choreographers Antonio de Rosa and Mattia Russo. The group was founded by young talented dancers coming from Spain’s Compañía Nacional de Danza de España (CND) with a need to use the body to communicate. They exude an inner urgency to exploit a language which transcends the limits of verbal communication. Their work incorporates elements from film, photography, literature, and sculpture as references for new forms of expression within a unique and often strange movement style.
