ALBA is a dance and piano recital but also a performance of musical choreographies, or an album of danced poems. ALBA plays on choreographic, musical and poetic writing. In this new work, choreographer Aimar Pérez Galí seeks to understand composing as a theme in its own right, playing with the rules of the different languages to construct intertextual paths back and forth. The five dancers and pianist will unfold a choreographic poetic world inspired by artists who have seen language and its composition as a game. From Joan Brossa to Raymond Queneau, Lucinda Childs, Gloria Fuertes, Tom Johnson, Josep M. Mestres Quadreny and Georges Perec. For the Peralada Festival, there will be a 'prelude' to this new creation which will premiere in February 2024 at the Flower Market. The prelude will be an opportunity to learn at first hand from the author himself about the creative methods used and the references investigated for this new work.
