l’Ora Magica by Silvia Costa

Finally! But where were you? Kids, you’re late!
I have the keys to get you in just at a precise time…
… and only at that magic time a strange character it will show to you. A ghost or spirit imprisoned in his grave? Something out of the earth made it a light substance, so bright that is not allowed anymore to go out in the sunlight. But he will tell you his story with his own words. Here, is the time to enter…

Richard Wagner: Tristan und Isolde, Prelude WWV 90 (1857)
Rebecca Saunders: Still – choreographic Version (2011/16) for Violin, Orchestra and Dancers
Alban Berg: Lulu-Suite. Symphonic Pieces from the Opera Lulu for coloratura Soprano and Orchestra (1934)

UN/RUHE is the new cross-genre project, in which the Young German Philharmonic with violinist Carolin Widmann and dancers from Sasha Waltz & Guests in musical and performative counterpoints arrange: The core of this choreographic concert is the Violin Concerto Still by Rebecca Saunders, framed by Richard Wagner’s Prelude to Tristan and Isolde and the Lulu Suite by Alban Berg.

Rebecca Sounders Violin Concerto, premiered in 2014 by Carolin Widmann, has musically expanded for this project, thus creating the basis for the congenial choreographic implementation.

SHUFFLE is a piece based on improvisation, in which Marcela and Rosabel together research and challenge one another by finding new ways to connect and move through different performative states. They are inspired for example, by the phenomenon of shifting internal musical landscapes that people experience when listening to an mp3 player.

UNTITLED SERIES: n* 1. is the first solo in a series of solos, in which Ivo is interested in unfolding his own process of making. Ivo will focus on how the maker researches and producing images, states, sounds and potential scores in order to create a landscape of co-existing elements, all generated from the performer himself.


Concept | performance: Ivo Serra





MOVE LIKE YOU HAVE A PURPOSE is a solo that Ellinor has created inspired by the conception of abstractness. Similar to abstract painting, in dance, an abstract element /movement can only be understood by its own inner-logic. It is an element that in-and-of itself expresses an inner sense that is only known by the performer individually.

OTHER, BALLET, PIECE Sebastian-Lingserius_Other-Ballet-Piece_Foto-Nadja-Voorham
 OTHER, BALLET, PIECE is a piece that constructs itself in-between three things: the bodily framework of ballet as a diagram to (miss)use, the pop-body as an aesthetics to historicize, and a musical score that begins to alienate itself. Three corners of a triangle, what can appear in the middle?

EQUILIBRIO ARCAICO at Mercat de les Flors, Barcelona

Solo Dance Performance by Minako Seki
Premiere at
Mercat de les Flors Theater, Barcelona

invitation to the Festival CIUTAT FLAMENCO / FLA.CO.MEN
Curated by: Israel Galván, Pedro G. Romero
and Patricia Caballero

About the Festival

It is not difficult to convene, that Israel Galván is not only an advanced flamenco dancer, his way of doing has become a means, a unique form of understanding flamenco. It’s no wonder that around him are appearing modern and ancient, flamenco and contemporary artists, who have been strang in the eye of Galvan’s needle. At the same time, a galaxy and a carpet. This rag has been shaped as a singular path. The floor is woven forming his own warp: old wool pieces drawn the artists that are accompanying Galvan in Fla.Co.Men and the latest silks, Patricia Caballero or El Niño de Elche, are new threads, which the dancer is tangling and intertwining. Let’s take a look to the smooth and striated textures. Israel Galván is a tapestry.

About Equilibrio Arcaico

Wind and falling stones are condensing a posture of deep listening during the Prelude of Equilibrio Arcaico.

Minako Seki, invokes the tension, equilibrium and the resonance involved on the gestures, cutting through the knowledge of the fragile line between the conscious and the unconscious. She creates a dance for a suspended state, embracing the heights and the depths of the human experience.

What have in common the complex network of our nervous system, the strings of a guitar and a spiderweb?

They weave, entwine and connect, they all vibrate and create reverberation, breakable and delicate they celebrate complicity. They are also the core images in which Minako Seki dives to connect tradition and contemporaneity, she mixes the similarities and differences between Spain and Japan: friendship, histories, sorrows and prays, ghosts, dreams, weakness, contradictions, hands and dedication; yesterday, today and tomorrow.

A Japanese folk song por Bulerías.

“Y estás: en el vacío
y en la ausencia presente,
en la que es y vive
sin dejar de ser única
oquedad invisible
con raíces eternas.
No hay mundo que la llene
pero sí algo vivo
que la besa y la calma.”

Ernestina de Champourcín
Spanish poetess of the “Generación del 27″
