About the Company

Marcos Morau studied choreography at the Institut del Teatre of Barcelona, the Valencia Conservatory of dance and Movement Research in New York, earning the highest rating in his final thesis project and the extraordinary award of the Institut del Teatre.  Performs her choreographic Assistant project in the prestigious Nederlands Dans Theater II of Holland and company IT Dansa of Barcelona under the direction of Catherine Allard.  His artistic skills are not limited to dance, but extend to other disciplines such as photography and playwriting, pursuing a master’s degree in theory of dramaturgy.   In 2005 he creates La Veronal, a collective comprising artists from dance, cinema, literature and photography. The purpose of his artistic team lies directly in a constant search of new expressive media and cultural references – cinema, literature and photography – which are committed by a narrative language with the intention of forming global art spaces.  La Veronal is creating a series of works that take as starting point a country or city in the world, creating an analogy between dance and geography. The works are not intended to be construed as documentary works describing the country directly, but they use the items provided by the name of the place to carry out the development of an idea, of a Plot.  This imaginary has led the company to differentiate themselves on the map of international contemporary creation with a voice of their own.

About the Piece

“Our relationships don’t occur because we want them to, because we wish them. They do not occur because we want to get pleasure from such relationships. They do because we are afraid.”

Andrei Tarkovsky

Lake Baikal, located in southern Siberia, is the deepest lake in the world. Such is its water volume that if you split it in the Earth’s surface, the planet would be covered by a layer of eight inches high. Russia is a moving picture, a road trip to Lake Baikal.
The protagonists are in front of a roan that plunges into the forest. There is snow on the road. Russia is large and unknown.
They are forced to stay together, locked inside a vehicle. They spend the night listening to radio programs. The road leads them to be increasingly closer to the lake, however, they never get to see it. From the beginning, Russia is born with the will of never ending. Russia is the geographical representation of fear.
