Co. Júlia Godino i Alexa Moya
Founded and composed by both dancers and creators, Júlia Godino Llorens (1996) and Alexa Moya Panksep (1997), is a contemporary dance company that arose with the creation of their duet Picnic on the Moon in 2018, and that has as its foundation the collaboration with other collectives and artistic disciplines. This is how their first piece was born, in the frame and with the support of the collective The Backyard (Antwerp, Belgium), to which both belong and have co-created together with other dancers. Currently, the company is working on its new piece Residència 0, in collaboration with the collective Llego Tarde, in which the disciplines dance and sculpture converge.
The piece Picnic on the Moon was created in 2018 and premiered in 2019 at the Festival Sismògraf (Olot). Since then, it has been performed in different locations and festivals in Belgium and Spain, it has been part of Red Acieloabierto 2020, it has been the winner of the Certamen Coreográfico de Sabadell 2019 (first prize of the jury and popular prize) and became one of the 6 finalist pieces in the Certamen Coreografico de Madrid 2019; and has been part of dFeria’s 2020 program.
