II Cultural Days 2017

II Cultural Days 2017

Entry's publication day: 15/02/2021

We will continue to offer a space for exchange and communication between the students and former students of our Center - currently dance professionals - as we did last year. In this way we will have the opportunity to know first-hand how their inclusion in the work world of dance has been. At the I Cultural Days (2016) we enjoyed the experience of: Inés Belda, Lourdes Sánchez, Elena Martínez, Verónica Llavero, Isabel Abril, Irene Ballester, Clara Crespo and Roseta Plasencia. This year we will start with these two interventions:

  • Néstor García Díaz, Belgian based performer and choreographer
  • Irene Cortina, dancer, choreographer and director of the Irene Cortina Company, currently established in Germany.

On February 2 and 3, contemporary dance students will have the pleasure of sharing with them their experiences and their intermediated work, talks and workshops. We hope for one more year that these days will be very profitable for the students.

SHARON FRIDMAN

Within the framework of our II Cultural Days, students in advanced professional-level courses will be able to enjoy master classes that will aim to put them in contact with representative figures of classical, contemporary and Spanish dance. With these master classes we will put an end to the activities that, throughout the course, have been carried out with former students from our center and who are currently great dance professionals. Our first guest figure will be Sharon Fridman, on Friday, April 7 at 10:00.

The objective of this workshop is to share with the participants the most substantial aspects that this creator has received and assimilated from the contact technique as a method of scenic composition throughout his career, and also as a philosophy of approach to understanding relationships human. Concepts such as organicity, need, collaboration or support are at the base of their creations and will govern the development of the work sessions. Starting from improvisation and following specific rules of the game around the shared point, gravity, fall, instability, contact, speed or bounce, we will generate choreographic compositions that will be a direct expression of an element with which we have connected in a personal way: dance as a sincere expression of what happens within us, dance as an internal and irreversible need.

Master-class review:

Danza València could not start better: yesterday, Thursday, April 6, we were able to enjoy All Ways by Sharon Fridman's company and today the third, fourth, fifth and sixth year students of contemporary dance have had the opportunity to know and experience this work of the hand of Sharon Fridman, Beñat Urretabizcaia and Rucgard Macherin. A very much used morning that surely has had a deep impact on all the participants. Thanks to Sharon and her production team for making it possible.

EDUARDO MARTÍNEZ

Next Tuesday, April 25, students of advanced level of Spanish Dance will receive a master class from Eduardo Martínez, first dancer of the National Ballet of Spain. We will do different works from the specific movement of the language of Spanish Dance that lead us towards greater listening and rhythmic-musical group communication. The session will be dedicated to both technical content such as body placement, movement projection and musicality. An in-depth work will be proposed that helped the dancer to internalize the technique through the pleasure of dancing and the joy with our body.
