Synopsis

Sometimes, normal things cause a stir, such as…

JANET’S BREAST

Janet Jackson showed her breast during a performance and the image went automatically right around the world, becoming a scandal and even reaching the courts. What was it about this that made it so important in certain circumstances and perfectly normal in others?
This is precisely what ERTZA’s new work discusses: What’s normal what shouldn’t be. How contemporary societies construct their own normality, always based on subjective opinions, mostly on statistics, and often on self-interest.
Here, we attend a crazy irreverent imaginary, in which under the live sound explosion of Jhana Electrorganic, four dancers in different styles question the rules that are established at the cost of discrimination against and rejection of minorities and collectives which do not fulfil the requirements of the majority. Playing with the limits of acquired modesty, fashion and ways; and challenging prejudices that still exist in our society.

Company

Asier Zabaleta founded the ERTZA company in 2004 with the goal of opening up a new space in which to create through the interaction of different artistic disciplines such as dance, theatre, the plastic arts and audio-visual language.

The works by ERTZA pose questions about human and social contradictions. They invite the public, in a playful and aesthetic way, to take up an active position in the face of what they are seeing, and to reflect on current everyday topics.

Since ERTZA was founded, Asier has presented his performances in countries such as China, the Philippines, Brazil, Peru, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Mexico, Israel, Russia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Germany, France, Italy, Greece, Spain and Portugal.
