Metamorphosis Dance Company
Thursday July 14, 20:30
El Canal, Centre d'arts escèniques Salt-Girona

In a play of contrasts, the sensuality of the beginning and a classical duet to the rhythm of Philipp Glass, give way to a much more physical and explicit dance, guided by the compositions of Johan Wieslander. The choreography and performance is by the great dancers Iratxe Ansa, (National Dance Award 2020, Max Awards) and Igor Bacovich. The lighting is by the artisan of light Danilo Moroni, who is as much the protagonist of the play as the performers themselves. A vital naturalism takes over the stage, which surrounds the viewer in a continuous crescendo as the play progresses. Screenings, music, technique, guided improvisation and the voice-over of Aia Kruse Goenaga, who performs texts by Ansa and Bacovich, go hand in hand. The show combines video recording and streaming of what is happening live on stage. The piece starts from an intimate space, in continuous transformation, to immerse the viewer in this exquisite atmosphere that characterizes both the work of Metamorphosis Dance. In addition, spectators will be able to experience a welcome surprise at this, the opening of the Girona en Moviment 2022 festival!
