Spanish Federation of Dance Companies Network

After its premiere in December 2018 at “Teatros del Canal” (Madrid), Aracaladanza faces a new challenge that forces Madrid’s contemporary dance company to relinquish the certainty of a path initiated a decade ago with the staging of Pequeños Paraisos (Tiny Paradise).

 

“PLAY ” is a new and fresh beginning in the history of the company internationally renowned for its scenic productions for children and family audiences.

 

With the input of an avant-garde artistic team that has been sharing its creativity, magic and aesthetic values for nearly 15 years, Aracaladanza has not required the drive of a painter. Or dived into the universe of a great artist.

 

The need to feel totally free to enjoy the artistic process as well as the desire to simply play, is the driving force behind this new production that is being staged by five dancers who have worked together with Enrique Cabrera, the true soul promoter of Aracaladanza, to build a project based around the idea of playing.

 

With the support of the Teatros del Canal complex in Madrid, of the SHCAT (from Shanghai), the Community of Madrid, Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London and the Grec Festival Barcelona 2019, the company has worked to create this show in which it wishes to reflect the quality and spirit it has long shown on stage worldwide.
