Three dance shows endorsed by Aerowaves

Lo Invisible, Tanzanweisungen (it won't be like this forever) & Gran Bolero

The Festival continues its long-standing cooperation with the international dance platform Aerowaves, whose aim is to connect, represent and network promising young dance artists, international projects and audience from all over the world. This year, it will bring us three dance shows endorsed by Aerowaves.

From Spain we get to see a show by a dance collective No bautizados, led by dancer and choreographer Katia Humenyuk and actor and mime artist Rolando Salamé. Basically, the show Lo Invisible puts contemporary dance on a theatre stage to tell us a story of emotions, impressions and personal experiences. It digs deep into emotions stemming from the key moments of our lives. To illustrate a dual nature of our existence, the performers take a playful look at our physical differences, life experiences, contradictions, success, longings and fears. The show is to take place at the Grimani Castle on Friday, 23 July.

German choreographer Moritz Ostruschnjak will bring to San Vincenti his Tanzanweisungen (it won't be like this forever), a dance solo performed by Daniel Conanta, brimming with ironic references and reflections that one cannot pinpoint exactly. Ostruschnjak sticks to the eclectic style of his recent productions and gives his dancer a way to smoothly transition from the Bavarian Schuhplattler to grand jeté, from boxing footwork to break dance movements, from a bow to rope skipping. The show's protagonist glides through this highly diverse landscape of canonical movements, quickly switching between contrasting and seemingly absurdly lined up positions associated with resistance, combat, victory, masculinity, youth culture, classical ballet, ball dance, and sports.

The final Aerowaves show is the awarded hit Gran Bolero by Jesús Rubio Gamo, which will close the 22nd Dance and Non-Verbal Theatre Festival San Vincenti at the Grimaldi Castle on Sunday, 25 July. It is a complex and impressive co-production by two largest dance theatres in Spain, Madrilenian Teatros del Canal and Mercat de les Flors, which takes a radically new perspective on Ravel's most famous piece. It is a sequel of the duet Bolero shown at the 2018 Festival, in which Gamo revisits his research of the Ravel's piece, this time with a grand company performance by six dancers from Madrid and six from Barcelona. Gran Bolero speaks about the effort and pleasure of resistance; an obstinate choreography about the fine line separating enjoyment and exhaustion, a dance to celebrate the time and the space we share. The show received the MAX Award (Spanish national prize for performing arts) as Best Dance Production in 2020.
