About the Company

OtraDanza is a contemporary dance company founded in 2007 by the dancer, choreographer, and teacher Asun Noales. It is born with the intention of enhancing the body as a primary language in creation, with the desire to transmit through the ethereal trace of the flesh. Two main efforts of the troupe are the will to diminish the line that separates the audience from the dancers – each choreography has to be a shared journey – and the construction of OtraDanza as a new space of debate and proposals where the artistic collaboration of choreographers can add value and bring new views to this art.

Since its inception, OtraDanza has created both self-produced works (the trilogy formed by the pieces Back, Ara and Tattoo, the child-oriented Eureka, Tierra or Da Capo) and coproduced ones (El Gran Banquete, commissioned by Villena’s Chapí Theater, or Mater, prepared for the Festival Medieval de Elche). The activity of the company has been several times awarded with institutional distinctions – Premios de las Artes Escénicas de la Generalitat Valenciana – and has been recognized by the Red Nacional de Teatros as well.

The dance company has performed at many occasions, places, and festivals such as Madrid en Danza, Danza Gijón, Dansa València, Mercat de les Flors (Barcelona), Tanzmesse (Dusseldorf), Schrit_Macher (Aachen) or the Harris Theater (Chicago). Other cities where the company has also been presented include Tegucigalpa, Managua, San Salvador, Seúl, Lima, Buenos Aires, Tirana, Nicosia, Sofía, Anagnia, Tesalónica, and Karlsruhe.

About the Piece

Just like a song or the harbinger of a silence, a quiet light line emerges in this movement of hands, faces and arms, which are the liturgy of the fixed flight of a celebration:  the world is now summarized in this space, in this area where bodies are the intimate prayer of air, the quiet closing of breathing that stops life and rises higher, more free and more pure.
