CREEPY CRAWLY, Jon López y Martxel Rodríguez

CND In residence 18/19. Creepy Crawly

CREEPY CRAWLY outlines a cast of characters who consciously conceal aspects of themselves from those around them. They hide truths of who they are, where they come from and whom they love. They fear shame, rejection, gossip and embarrassment. They whisper stories but never want the story to be about them.

The control in the expression of emotions is one of the first lessons the child must learn. Man must suppress crying, he can not give excessive signs of affection in public, he has to be dominant and, sometimes, even derogatory. Definitely, he must be strong not to resemble the other, who is supposed to be fragile and is the object of derision and contempt.

Thus, an alternative masculinity to the traditional one emerges, which on this occasion is shown not only in the bodies of the people portrayed, who look at the spectator in the eyes without imposture, but also in the point of view as a spectator who, without limiting himself to being a mere voyeur, appears as an active participant in this intimacy.

The piece reflects on the journey towards the acceptance of one self, despite that the common in the society is to change to be part of a group.

Premiered 24 March,  2018 en el Centro Cultural Eduardo Urculo of Madrid.

Xian Martínez. Tacto(Next translation)

Tacto se plantea como un nuevo proyecto de creación de danza contemporánea de carácter multidisciplinar, en el que se conjuga el lenguaje de la fotografía junto con el de la danza. En un primer lugar el proyecto de danza tiene cuatro vertientes posibles que se complementan posteriormente con el proyecto fotográfico, por lo que en este dossier se desarrollará primero la línea de danza.

La Idea de –Tacto parte del contacto entre seres humanos. En él se realizará un estudio del contacto físico entre personas, de cómo funciona este y de qué significado tiene. Desde diferentes pautas se desarrollará un material coreográfico que finalmente será cerrado y estructurado generando una pieza que plasme como las diferentes formas de contacto entre el ser humano aportan una información u otra, se estudiará cómo cada emoción se dibuja en el movimiento y se realizará un viaje desde el amor más profundo hasta el odio más extremo, pasando por todos los puntos intermedios, tanto a nivel emocional como de movimiento.

Based based on the play Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare
Direction and Choreography: Marina Miguélez
Interpretation: Raquel Salamanca Santaella, Marina Miguélez
Music and Sound: Selenite

VERSUS thoroughly studies the dramatic text by Shakespeare Julius Caesar, extracting the essence of its two main characters: only by observing the particularities of Brutus and Marc Antony, understanding their emotional and mental mechanisms, we can narrate the story of the conspiration against the roman emperor. The contemporary dance piece, performed in this case by two women, is eager to observe and pay tribute some of the cultural aspects of Ancient Rome, bringing to our days the antique vision of values that live trough time, such as friendship, patriotism, ambition or loyalty. The piece develops a deep movement and dramaturgy research work, and starts off the perspective of physical theater, mixing in its process movement, expression and text. Brutus: " If then they demand why Brutus rose against Caesar, this is my answer: Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more."

On April 6, in the midst of the creative process (the residency ends on April 12), a small exhibition will be held at Bastardo Hostel (Madrid) with a commentary on the project.

  • (Next translation) Sinopsis: 
  • Orimel es una pieza de danza española en la que se quiere mostrar y transmitir, principalmente, la belleza, estética y carácter de la Escuela Bolera a través de diferentes imágenes que crean Debussy y Chapí con sus músicas. Será la figura de: presentadora, la que dará vida a estas imágenes, ofreciendolas al público mientras forma parte de ellas.

  • Con esta pieza, se pretende revitalizar el lenguaje de la Escuela Bolera coreográfica e interpretativamente. Mientras recuerda su lado más tradicional nos mantiene en la actualidad.
