CreAcción – MTPS

CreAcción is a choreography that is coherent with the aesthetics and the already established scenic modes of Metamorphosis, but this time they have emerged from an unusual process. The piece, for five dancers, is not exempt from the rigor, perfectionism and physical demands of the usual work of the company. Aesthetically, it continues the visual investigations that led to earlier works such as Elkarrizketa Ilunak and In the Nude.

The choreography moves its five performers through space with precision and skill, always with awareness of everything, seeking balance, elegance and constant communication with the scenographic device, lighting and music, elements that together are responsible for the enigmatic atmosphere of the piece. Careful in composition, CreAcción flows through a chain of brief solos, duets, trios and group works of great balance and musicality, at times at breakneck speed and at times, calm, but always demanding in terms of individual physicality and group understanding. .

A huge neon-white plastic installation, created by Igor Bacovich, dominates the stage and bends the actions. Far from functioning as a decorative sculpture, the device is constantly transforming and mutating throughout the performance as if it were an orchestra conductor, a living entity that makes decisions and defines the routes and spaces for the performers to dance, all under the appeal of that dark and thunderous music, authored by Juan Belda, and the fascinating lighting by Nicolas Fischtel.

CreAcción, in short, offers a sensory and seductive experience at the same time, which is a step up in the rigor and creativity that characterize all the Metamorphosis Dance investigations.

ELKARRIZKETA ILUNAK – MTPS

Elkarrizketa ilunak (“Conversations in the dark”) is an innovative show on a choreographic level. On stage, Metamophosis Dance investigates its own approach to choreographic composition. The company wants to approach communication itself in this show. Its conversations on a physical level. Dynamic actions and reactions of conflict, love, unrest…. which they express not through speech, but through the body. The inspiration for the choreography is the possibility or impossibility of communication. What happens when two people taLk in the dark? By placing a conversation out of context, the type of message changes. As put by the creators, “We want to explore how the context can change communication. Even if you’re still the same, the environment you’re in modifies the way you communicate. We investigated how to translate this into choreographic composition itself for this production.

Al Desnudo – MTPS

Al desnudo is a demanding and dynamic show, in which music and movement fuse fluently. In a game of contrasts, the sensuality of the beginning, a classic duet to the rhythm of Philip Glass, gives way, little by little, to a very physical and explicit dance, guided by the compositions of Johan Wieslander.

The lighting was designed by the light craftsman Danilo Moroni, who was the third protagonist of Al desnudo as the interpreters themselves. A vital naturalism takes over the stage, that involves the viewer in a continuous crescendo as the piece develops.
