Synopsis

Aukeran Dantza Konpainia is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a careful and innovative stage proposal which will surprise the audience, a new look at the most emblematic choreographies in its recent works and others created for the occasion, emphasising the live music under the direction of Mixel Ducau, and stage direction under the care of Ainhoa Aierbe.
Aukeran DK is a company from Donostia-San Sebastián established by the dancer and choreographer Edu Muruamendiaraz in 1997; his choreographic work stands out for its blend of traditional and contemporary dance, breaking with, changing, dragging out or deconstructing the rhythm and rules of traditional dance and music.
We would like to thank with this performance all those artists, professionals, friends and especially the general public that, in its productive 20-year trajectory, have shared its force, sensitivity, dedication and art.

The household firelight that forges iron,
the happy game that fuses traditions,
the station that knows how to remake trips.
It is said everything has a name:
Gernika, Maurizia…
Both sound and dance,
Both body and clothes,
Both gestures and language…
If we can choose, let’s all go dance!

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 “Ereñotzu” 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.
