Synopsis

The universe of human relations demarcates the territory in which the latest artistic project by Dantzaz, ‘Growing Young’, moves, a performance which once again reunites several pieces created by prominent international choreographers from prestigious dance houses in Europe.

“As time passes by everything might change, yet on the inside we remain who we always have been.” These are the words of Wubkje Kuindersma, the author of ‘YOUth’, one of four creations which give life to this staging. The terrific Israeli artist Itzik Galili presents ‘Prelude for a wasted tear’, a danced out appeal with which he calls for a sense of community: people—he emphasises—form art of “a great family”. Galili’s work is inspired by a speech by the journalist and writer Isidor Feinstein Stone in the Ford Hall Forum in the United States in 1983. On the basis of his texts and the rhythm imposed by the voice of Nina Simone, Galili places the spectator in a free space of stereotypes and labels.
The Scottish-based Australian Janis Claxton will bring to the stage ‘UNE’, the piece chosen to open the programme of the performance. With this we are submerged into a new way of connecting with dance. Its duos, kinds of brief narrative landscapes, are charged with leading spectators from the hall to the stage, seeking their complicity and transforming them into accidental actors or essential parts of the scenography. Lastly, the Italian Daniele Ninarello completes this choral puzzle with ‘LEAD’, a proposal that invites us to reinterpret the body of dancers as nodes or clues in a broader migratory movement.

Company

Production centre, creative laboratory and dance company. These are the marks of identity which define Dantzaz, a pioneering platform in the field of the moving arts. Since 2006, 98 dancers (from more than twenty countries) and 50 choreographers have formed part of its recent history. Assembled as a house of creation and artistic production, renowned artists are invited every year to conceive, expressly for the company (which is made up of 12 full-time dancers), different pieces and short performances. Some of them have formed part of productions like ‘Flash!’ (from choreographies by Itzik Galili and Jacek Przybylowicz), ‘Áureo’ (with works authored by Jone San Martin, Christine Hassid, Judith Argomaniz, Lukas Timulak and Itzik Galili) and "Harri, Orri, Ar" (Les Vikings, Jorge Jauregi and Paolo Mohovich).

Dantzaz, meeting space
Thanks to its International Choreographic Creation Centre, every year Dantzaz accepts 12 artistic residences which bring together six international artists and six Basque artists, a networking laboratorial and working formula which is reinforced by the collaboration offered by different Basque bodies and spaces, such as Dantzagunea, Donostia Kultura, Tabakalera, Azkuna Zentroa, CCN Malandain-Biarritz, and festivals like Dantza Hirian and Regards Croisés. Dantzaz supports promoting and developing international projects, as the collaboration agreements which it has signed with international dance houses demonstrate. This is the case with Korzo (Holland), Piemonte dal Vivo, Aterballetto and Scenario Pubblico (Italy), Danish Dance Theatre (Denmark), Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Quebec (Canada), CCN Malandain-Biarritz (France), and DanceBase (United Kingdom), in a continually expanding and moving network, dedicated to creating opportunities for the world of dance, with a mark of unmistakable quality, energy and originality.
