Avant-premiere of 'Lands / Dosis de Paraíso' in Pinto

Friday 15 November is the chosen date for the preview of Sharon Fridman’s new creation ‘Dose of Paradise‘.

Friday 15 and 29 November are the days chosen for the preview of Sharon Fridman’s new creation ‘Lands / Dosis de Paraíso’. The performances will take place on the 15th at the Francisco Rabal Theatre and on the 29th at the Municipal School of Dance in Pinto, both places of reference in the Community of Madrid, where these pieces have been taking shape at the artistic-technical level after an intense process of creation and research that has had the collaboration, among others, of two sound and visual artists, regular collaborators of Fridman: Ofer Smilansky and Idan Shimoni (Danski). ‘Dosis de Paraíso’ is a composition for two dancers and a musician who dialogues with new technologies and proposes a new scenic landscape, a place to look for paradise. ‘Lands’ is a composition in which Sharon Fridman returns to the stage with Carlos Peñalver in a duo in which lands (territories) are the mainstays of research into the language of contact. A duo where the common center allows the experimentation of the architecture of the union.

‘Pure virtuosity. Fridman has created a firm combination of series of high intensity movements intermingled with body dialogues. The design of the lighting and its influence on the choreography and music stand out, as if it were the third pillar of the work. A pleasant and special work, with a magnificent representation with moments of emotion and magic.’ Ora Brafman

'Hiru Erregeen Mahaia', a solo for Jon Maya

Hiru Erregeen Mahaia is the highest mountain in the Basque Country and the starting point for Jon Maya’s solo choreographed by Sharon Fridman that forms part of the work Gauekoak, Kukai Dantza’s latest work, and the most intimate and personal for its director. The research process for this work began with a walk in search of a certain truth as an objective. Jon and Sharon thus reached the feet of Hiru Erregeen Mahaia. Faced with the impossibility of glimpsing his peak that remained hidden behind a dense cloud, they decided to start a journey from above, dancing a Jota.
The difficulties they had to face in the different points of this ascent were the key to the discovery of a certain truth about the Basque man.

Gauekoak premieres on December 1st in Hondarribia and includes choreographies by Cesc Gelabert, Israel Galván and Jon Maya himself. More info Kukai Dantza Konpainia.
