A Kukai Dantza production created in 2018.
Max Award 2019 for Best Choreography.
'Sharon Fridman's choreography achieves a disturbing atmosphere, a language that, starting from the classic, from the ancestral, becomes a contemporary piece that escapes the canons and acquires artistic excellence that manages to integrate the spectators in this ritual of coexistence, of restoration of the collective as a symbol of peace.' Carlos Gil.
Erritu is a vital journey that crosses through individual and collective rites of passage the different states of life in relation to nature and the community. States that go from birth to chaos, passing through the desert of solitude, to encounter, love and, nally, death.
Rites act as bridges to try to discover the meaning of the connections between our individual existence – charged with past, present, promises of future and options – and the ritualized collective experience, always referential but also in movement and change. Spirituality, tenderness and personal decision go hand in hand with a journey that, in the end, is collective but influenced by the trajectories of the most conscious.
NATURE OF THE PROJECT
Erritu is the meeting between Kukai Dantza and the prestigious choreographer Sharon Fridman.
In this work, therefore, two ways of understanding dance merge. The difference between the two languages lies in their richness and attractiveness. Sharon Fridman’s work offers Kukai dancers a new physicality and quality of movement based on contact, which contrasts and enriches the purity and vitality of their habitual movements.
