Synopsis

The forest – basoa – which hides, which covers. Magical and terrifying place. Like the forest that wanted to cover and make forget a moment in history full of tragic references. A refugee camp, a concentration camp… Gurs, an enclave into which hundreds of people were crowded and died. A place close to us geographically and not so far in history. Gurs serves as a starting point for a reflection on the same situation, today, suffered by thousands of refugees who are fleeing their lands because of wars and poverty. Gurs is the bridge that unites past and present.

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.
