Intangible Bridges lead the viewer into private micro-universes of the performers, in which their personal and professional experiences interlace, their ambitions meet with obstacles. Fragments of their life stories are connected by intangible threads they are not always aware of, but these threads inexplicably determine their course of action. These threads, these intangible bridges, help us realize that despite our differences we all need each other in order to be ourselves again.

Dance material has been created mostly by performers themselves, with a clear intention from the very beginning: to test their physical and emotional limits in order to create a unique form of visual poetry – the poetry which is the result of their own experience. Using non-verbal theatre and the language of contemporary dance, Intangible Bridges is a puzzle which reveals interrelations and ties between six stories and six different personalities.

Roberto Olivan (Tortosa, 1972) is a Catalan choreographer and director of Enclave Arts Del Moviment. He lives and works all around the world, combining seemingly opposing influences from different countries and cultures into primeval, organic physical theatre full of amazing contradictions. Roberto Olivan graduated from the Institut del Teatre, Barcelona, and from P.A.R.T.S., Belgium. During his long and intense career, Roberto has worked with world-known choreographers and directors, created pieces (more than 50 of them) for many dance companies and theatres around the world, and received prestigious awards. He is the founder and artistic director of Deltebre Dansa festival.
