Synopsis

“Biraka is a personal challenge, a desire to enquire into my memory and undertake a journey between the body that I was and that which I am. A tribute to my roots.”
The piece explores the connections between Basque traditional dance and contemporary dance, bringing both worlds together. It establishes a choreographic dialogue out of contemporary language with Basque Culture, reinventing elements of tradition. The txalaparta, a percussion instrument, runs through the Basque-themed work and offers a contemporary touch on account of its atonal properties, its capacity for innovation and experimentation.
“The stage is transformed into a space on which to express, from a personal place, the most profound part of roots (origins and beginning), absorbing everything they need whilst they turn in on themselves or around other things (development), enriching themselves and giving rise to a new space: mine.”

Company

Born in Portugalete, Nerea started dancing in the traditional dance and music group Elai-Alai. She trained in Classical Dance with Ana Rosa Tercero and, in turn, in Contemporary Dance with Matxalen Bilbao.
Qualified in teaching Physical Education, she decided to delve more deeply into dance by attending the Professional Dance School in Burgos, where in her final year she received a grant from the Provincial Council of Bizkaia.
She has studied with teachers and choreographers from the Basque Country and all over Europe, working as a performer for companies in the Basque Country, Switzerland and other places.
In this new stage as a choreographer, she’s facing up to the challenge of a solitary project with the creation of Biraka. Previously, she collaborated and co-created pieces alongside other artists.
