Dansa Metropolitana

Remaining true to its commitment to excellence, this year Dansa Metropolitana brings us eleven foreign productions that have already won over the public and critics alike. Given the Focus on Latin America, seven of them are by creators from across the Atlantic.

One of them is the Chilean Marco Layera, who is returning to Teatre Lliure with his company Teatro La Re-Sentida to present the dance project Oasis de la impunidad, following his highly successful Paisajes para no colorear.

Other examples include the Brazilian Poliana Lima, who will be presenting Las cosas se mueven pero no dicen nada, a show with a dozen female performers on stage, at the Mercat de les Flors; and the Argentinian Marina Otero, currently one of the most popular creators, who will bring to L’Hospitalet’s Teatre Joventut a provocative look at the body in FUCK ME, a work with five naked performers.

The Argentinian Josefina Gorostiza will premiere her Las cantatas eufóricas, a Dansa Metropolitana co-production that gives a modern makeover to Bach’s cantatas, at the Teatre Principal in Terrassa.

In Terrassa’s Factoria Cultural, the renowned Cuban dancer Carlos Acosta’s company Acosta Danza will present Spectrum, a set of five pieces with the distinctive features of the most modern and contemporary Cuba.
