  • alternatifs programs

      seeks to address itself as much to the public at large as to an initiated audience, to all lovers of contemporary art, adapting the type of performance (from the point of view of production, staging and lighting) to the space in which events take place.

    For its next projects, will be touring an 80 minute program presented as a continuous performance, alternating solo or duo instrumental pieces with dance episodes to live or recorded music, using also electronic effects and video projections.

  • The musical conception of the show is based on the idea of succession of several entire pieces, with their own thematic and expression, which belong to different categories:
  • Pieces for solo or duo that explore special technical-expressive possibilities of instruments, performed live in the show by soloists whose performing skills involves also theatrical style;
  • Pieces for various instrumental combination, used on the tape, that become the musical metaphoric support for the choreographic moments.
  • The music of the show, in its global sense, covers a wide range of expressive colours between tension and release, poetic and dramatic, temporal and atemporal, seeking and contemplating, using varios musical means from archetipal or folkloric melodies to noize sonorities.
