The MASDANZA CANARIAS programme arises from the need to accompany and promote creators and artists from the Canary Islands. They are given a space in the context of the Festival with the aim of showing to the public pieces created and/or performed by Canarian artists, consequently contributing to their national and international projection and favouring the creation of a Canarian artistic community.

“A single action: spin until you drop. A body work in relation to another metal. The physical and emotional drive are the engine to stay in orbit.

To look, to observe in and with all the senses. To look. To observe. To look, to observe at and with the whole body, to perceive.

“ ‘Una ida al canto’ is a passage. It is also a stop in the journey where she does not know if she is walking forward or backwards, if she is coming or going. A woman that seeks, finds and discards, almost at the same time. Beyond the classic search for an identity, what does not remain, becomes the essential. This way, she does not cling to anything”.

“We use our bodies as transportation. We transport our thoughts into movement, Let’s move an idea of a relationship between two people, opposed in some moments and attracted in others. The people are presented to opposing forces thereby creating a tension, existing during a duet in which the rocky material indicates when, how and who drives the situation. A choreographic form is a natural idea of real life. Personal relationships. It does not have to exist the same pattern of people, we want to make the viewer see the fact that there are always actions that create tension. To throw or not to throw, to pretend or not to pretend, to leave or not to leave, to long or not to yearn”.
