N8 0HX is a contemporary dance show for all audiences. Distance. This piece tells how distances stand between human relationships and condition them. Two dancers share the same space that changes dimensions and, in the same way, the distances between them change. Two lying in the green with the blue on top wishing that the silence does its thing, moving to skin on earth and earth on skin. Breathing happens, it's like falling into the sky.

 

Show premiered in May 2005 at the Isto Ferve Festival of the Ensalle Theater in Vigo. 50 minutes.

Music: Ryuichi Sakamoto, Violet vision, Craig Armstrong

Costume and space: Pisando Ovos

Inchaurras, volcano, acrobats in Japan, farewell, a lot of love, am I wrong, do you sleep with me? without legs, without effort, in search of acorns, the grandparents, in Pé de Pedra, my return to the theater, talking on the phone with a dragon, when it is not night, the bottle man, waiting without understanding anything ... This piece is born thanks to those small moments that wind our lives, but also to the search itself, waiting, the company and the sum of two moments. It is our moment. BOOM !! Here we are ... Let us just dance the time that is ours, the time that touches us ... Just an instant ...

MENOS 1

Direction Assitant: Marina Carón 

Lighting Design: Afonso Castro

Production: Pisando Ovos

Collaborator: Teatro Ensalle 

 

The subtraction of two gives me a 1. Because I talk about what happens to me, because I talk about what I feel, because I live a moment of solitude, and in a society of individuality. A world in which the opposite sides are not so far apart, in which the change from one state to another happens continuously, where laughter turns into something sad and falls into an elegant moment. Work in which images are confused, where shapes change into what they are not, a moment to laugh and feel, a new moment to add. Proposal that becomes a new world full of possibilities that I will try to enjoy.

 

Premiered at the Ensalle Theater in Vigo on October 3, 2008. 50 minutes.

 

 

TRES

Creation and performers Andrea Quintana, Janet Novás and Rut Balbis

Direction: Rut Balbis

Direction assitant: Afonso Castro

Lighting and space Design: Afonso Castro

Sound space: Soyuz

Desing and comunication: miramemira

 

TRES teaches us the encounters and disagreements of three women conditioned by their sexuality and their personal experiences about her. Encounters that are defined between the individual and the common, fantasy and obsessions, the mimicry of bodies, and all this in a new world in which they can rediscover themselves. The piece is an exploration of the possibilities and limits of the body through the combination of different disciplines with which they try to find new and personal records that range from the most radical to the most minimalist movements.

 

Premiered at the Pazo da Cultura de Narón on October 31, 2009. 60 minutes.

QUE VOLVAN AS FLORES

Creation and interpretation: Rut Balbis

Assistant director: Janet Novás

Lighting Design: Afonso Castro

Lighting stage technician: Afonso Castro/ Fili

Production: Pisando Ovos

Collaborators: NORMAL, Coreógrafos en Comunidad, miramemira, Santos Salgado, Leo López and Manu Lago

A practise to create point-in-time images, a dance piece reshaped in each performance.

Taking detachment as the starting point and moving to the actions under the routine of “reshaping” each dance piece, with the participation of the audience, faces a different moment. This is why most of the practises, during the creation of the piece, were open to the public. The performance itself deals with the process of creation, being reshaped at the same time that it is performed.

QUE VOLVAN AS FLORES is formed by 25 chairs which build the images that are reconstructed and deconstructed, inviting the audience to fill in the gaps with their gazes.

An open and alive dance piece which is transformed as time goes by.

Premiered on May 26 and 27, 2014 -Teatro Ensalle, Vigo-Spain. 50 minutes.
