Closer is a project that challenges the traditional relation between dance and audience, seeking a closer and democratic encounter with the spectator. The will to investigate the gesture and the intersection between dance and physical theatre has lead towards circus and the circus space and we believe that the performance ability of the dancers will be deepened through acquired skills such as clown, acrobatics or object manipulation. Creation starts in the circus space La Vela in Sabadell where we setup a series of creative spaces with circus professionals in order to learn better understand of “body poetry” and characterisation through gesture. The idea is not to create a dance-circus fusion but find a new language appropriate to the final dance show.
