TERRA LLAURADA

TERRA LLAURADA
A NIGHT OF DANCE WITH CATALAN AND INTERNATIONAL DANCERS AND CREATORS

Creation, destruction and regeneration are synonyms that beat deeply in the lands of Peralada. The action of ploughing brings with it the regeneration of the fields and of life itself, a symbolic parallel that converses with the current reconstruction process of the festival itself, as a result of which new dynamics, proposals and creations are being born and will continue to be born. To create is to enter a space that opens the door to an imaginary, hidden world, a process that germinates, as if from a seed, new forms, physicalities, concepts and concerns. To create is to give shape to the invisible. Dance is the secret language of the soul. Today, when we think of the great artistic legacy that choreographers like Marius Petipa, Vaslav Nijinksy or Martha Graham have left us, it might seem a little strange to think that all these works, before turning into the well-known classics they are today, not to mention milestones in the history of dance, were born from small ideas, stories or inspirations. Bringing together eleven Catalan and European dancers, including Martí Paixà (principal dancer of the Stuttgart Ballett), Lorena Nogal (choreographer, assistant and dancer at the Veronal), Albert Hernández (principal dancer of the National Ballet of Spain and choreographer at the Venidera) and Aleix Martínez (principal dancer of the Hamburg Ballett and choreographer), and works by creators such as John Neumeier, Lorena Nogal, Marco Goecke, Albert Hernández and Aleix Martínez, Terra llaurada aims to be a night of dance dedicated to this small creative seed, to the spark that contains the power to light a fire.
