Spanish Federation of Dance Companies Network

Animal is a choreographic work for five performers, presented in a dreamlike atmosphere. It explores necessity and desire: a flow of superposed pictures and scenes of physical, emotional answers, of extreme situations, in which instinct appears in the most daily moment of our days.

 

Without resorting to a classical narrative thread, the work displays images of fighting, necessity, relaxation, love, emotional sequestrations. Actions that are linked to the idea of animality and survival.

 

The company’s characteristic mix between dance and action, intermingles and moves around together with Marina Wainer’s texts, evoking scenes of the impulsive world which leads us towards things or situations.
