Spanish Contemporary Dance

“Quisiera borrarte de un suspiro” identifies with the debate over contemporary art. In trying to understand and evade reality, contemporary art uses two methods: new forms, and, in some cases, new colours, but always leaving reality aside and content, the uttermost important.

Our proposal wants to make different feelings and situations experience these two perspectives, researching the ways in which art and dance can express the interior of individuals, their fears, their ghosts, their desires. We have tried to make the result a fusion of feelings that archive their real meaning only when combined together. Cubists stated that “shapes have a real meaning depending on their surroundings” … just as our feelings.
 
Content or shape: two different ways of starting to work on any contemporary artistic proposal. We want to discover-experiment in which of these two ways we feel more comfortable, in which of these two ways we can express those things that are waiting to be expressed and, of course, which way allows us to reach one of our goals: to feel closer to the audience.
