Spanish Federation of Dance Companies Network

Dance essays around the idea of ​​pain. Sometimes they come in at once, sometimes they instill themselves drop by drop, gesture by gesture and one day you wonder how you got there. The pain approaches, takes root, makes its nest, pokes its horned heads and always begins their prayers with the same word: Me. They are like voices that vibrate in my body and rumble in the head, that wear suits worthy of a soul. They are sensations that as son as they accumulate a little are reflected in actions. They are small gestures and grimaces that are repeated in this way, from a body without intention yet, they become character. They end up making what I am and yet the more I know them the more I feel absent from my life. The house belongs to them. I have lost count of all my pains, incompatible with each other. The only thing that unites them is this inconsistent word that gives us the illusion of being: Me. They are like islands that lack an ocean. My identity has no solution of continuity. Pain is a demon that seizes me … And according to those who know, all demons like to dance.
