The Catalan National Dance Prize winner will perform Camí de silenci and Padre in a show he has named Absències.
In 2003, Andrés Corchero won the Catalan National Dance Prize for his long career. He has been recognised for his work in Butoh dance, but above all he has focused on improvisation, performing with renowned musicians including Joan Saura and Agustí Fernández. He is also a prolific choreographer, mostly with his company Raravis, which he set up with Rosa Muñoz. This January you will have the chance to see him again, performing two very special solos, together under the name Absències (Absences). Designed to be seen in sequence, as their main theme is the passage of time, loss of a loved-one, the role of the father and the desire to live. The first part, called Camí de silenci (Path of silence), was created in 1995, just a few years after his father died. Corchero will be performing it exactly as it was originally choreographed. The second solo, called Padre (Father), seeks to reflect the search to transcend generational roles.
Absències will be performed from 16 to 18 January at 8:00 pm. All 3 performances will take place in the Pina Bausch hall at Mercat de les Flors. Before the performance on 18 January, there will be a “One hour before” session, with experts explaining the pieces and providing context for what the audience will see afterwards.
Tickets for this show cost €16. You can get them through Mercat de les Flors website.
