Synopsis

Two young people who come from the same country but from different cities quite far away from each other. Both have had to cross an 8,000km-long ocean and allow several years to pass before meeting one another on the other side of the world, getting to know one another and finding out everything that unites them. Discovering that place where, out of the blending of languages like hip-hop, something new and undefined emerges under the gaze of contemporary dance. Something undefined but which defines the two (or three) of them. That point at which the paths of the labyrinth of life, which split off in opposite directions, sometimes intertwine, and from that precise instant prevent us from continuing being who we were.
MEETING POINT speaks about those places where people meet, about the oceans that must be crossed in order to do so and about the time that must be spent waiting.

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.
