Synopsis

Before going out into the square, she brings the tambourine close to fire to warm up the skin. She does so carefully, because life has taught her that heat isn’t always so sweet, that flames, like passions, can burn you if you get too close.

When she hears the first notes from the alboka, she lifts her chin up and her fingers start to give life to that piece of skin, wood and metal, resuscitating sounds that have been out there ever since the world has been the world: the crash of a wave against the rocks, the whispering of trees shaken by a southerly wind, the crackling of a bonfire.

Her voice is an earthquake that speaks of joy, pride, strength, passion. And also of fear, rage, a yearning for freedom, pain. Because her voice is at the same time both guffaw and wail and with it she is telling us that each person is multiple people, that each of us is everything we have ever felt.
Under the effect of her spell, you feel like you’ve got a sparrow stuck inside your ribs, a small bird that starts to jump about, trying to break free of its bony prison. And the trembling this produces in you makes you laugh and cry at the same time, because you recognise as your own the pride and joy in that voice, as well as its pain and its fear. With each beat of the tambourine, her fingers pinch your skin, they wipe away the scars that life has marked her with, and they tell you, wake up, lift up that chin, face up to life and sing it, celebrate it, laugh with joy, cry with pity. Always do what your body demands of you.
Then you’ll realise that you, too, are Maurizia, that whoever is listening to her with you is also Maurizia, and you can’t stop yourself from shouting out: Go Maurizia!

Company

Dance company based in Donostia, ii was founded in 1997 on the initiative of dancer and choreographer Edu Muruamendiaraz; the fusion of traditional and contemporary dance defines its chorographical work, in which the rhythm and rules of traditional dance are broken, changed, drawn out or deconstructed, and this has become a distinguishing feature of the company.

The company has produced 10 shows through its artistic career: “Sutargi”, “Izena duen guztia omen da”, “Bideak", “10.urteurrena”, “GERNIKA, mihise gaineko dantza”, “Burnia”, “Geltokia”, “Fusioak”, “Maurizia” and ” Aukeraren 20.urte”(2017), a show in which it carries out an emotional trip through its most emblematic choreographies.
The company’s shows have toured the principal theatres and squares of the Basque Country, as well as outside our borders: Castile la Mancha, Murcia, France, Manresa, Manila, Argentina, Uruguay, “Smithsonian Folklife Festival ” in Washington, MTV concert with the group Crystal Fighters, among others.

At the same time it collaborates with renowned artists and groups: The Basque Youth Orchestra, the launch of the record “Garden” by Alos Quartet, representations in the zarzuela “El caserío” in theatres like Campoamor in Oviedo and Teatros el Canal in Madrid, the show “Ereńotzu” by Xabi Solano, with the group Kalakan, among others.

Aukeran began 2019 with a new challenge, a project in collaboration with Euskaltzaindia, the Basque Language Academy, to commemorate the centenary of its creation: “Bih hitza”, euskara batuaren historia dantzatua, a show which takes as its starting point the history of any language but represents the particular history of Standard Basque; language becomes movement, it becomes dance.
