A NEW YEAR
Thank you 2022. Welcome 2023 !
For this transition I want to share with you some images of TODAS LAS SANGRES, a dance of passage; a ritual of transmutation, about our body’s capacity to cohabit with various belief systems and contradictions within itself. May all our fragments and pieces that need harmonisation come together in this new year. May we ground our journeys, encounters, experiences, expand our expression, relationships and remain rooted, vulnerable and joyful here.

Next station: BUCARAMANGA
The dance film STELLAR FLUVIAL & and the dance solo TODAS LAS SANGRES having a Premier for the stage in this occasion, will be presented at Teatro Santander de Bucaramanga, the next 16th April at 17:00, on the frame of an homage to the Dancer, Choreographer and Dance-Master-Teacher Sonia Arias.
The body, movement and music come together in the solo performance TODAS LAS SANGRES to create a dance for a transmutation; Originated from the idea of conciliation between opposites, this solo dedicated to Sonia Arias, express about the body’s ability and necessity, to cohabit with various belief systems within itself; TODAS LAS SANGRES is also the title of a novel by Peruvian writer José María Arguedas, whose life and literary expression provides a great inspiration for creating this dance.
STELLAR FLUVIAL is a dance film, where the space defines the body, disciplines it, and at the same time offers it the freedom to think of itself in a new way. The interior/exterior space, the re-signification of the landscape, the crossed time, are some of the concepts that move within the film and create a re-connection with the viewer’s imagination.

NEW STAGE PIECE
Premiere 8.10 at Ballhaus Naunynstraße
ECHOES OF THE STONES An invitation to step out of the familiar structure, to go in search of the old and new, circular collaborations.
The dancer and choreographer Silvia Ospina has teamed up with the narrator Aliza Yanez, the musician and composer Biliana Voutchkova and the video artist Claire Fristot to create their own artistic cosmos from their experiences. Because it takes living memories for a tomorrow; it takes a dreamlike designing for a meaningful yesterday. Counter-designs. Development arises from the circle.
A production by Kultursprünge im Ballhaus Naunynstraße gemeinnützige GmbH, supported by the Hauptstadtkulturfonds
