Spanish Federation of Dance Companies Network

“Atávico” does not aim to put forth a narrative; instead, it presents a scenic experience connected to feelings of violence and their impact on the body: the scenery that, like a hidden force, makes us victims and torturers at the same time. With our project, we use “everyday” body types that do not meet conventional standards in hopes of sharing the beauty of movement and everyday gestures beyond what we typically see, as well as dance that transcends all virtuosity.
