Synopsis

This project involves an encounter between Kukai Dantza and Marcos Morau / La Veronal.

It’s the union between two choreographic universes and two perspectives on dance which navigate between its most popular roots and its most vanguard expression, suggesting a new performing universe within the national scene.

‘Oskara’ is an installation work which traverses certain landscapes of Basque culture, myths, from their origins up to the contemporary era, which sketch out an expressive and emotional journey of symbols and iconography of ambiguous and disconcerting power which, in a complete sense, does contain within it the history of the human experience.

The dramatic code points towards a performance articulated by a language of accentuated abstraction, almost violent, where only order within the compositions is able to contribute a certain sensorial logic.
