LAIA SANTANACH

TRADERE

Choreographer, dancer and pedagogue, Laia Santanach questions from a contemporary perspective the representation of the body in Western traditional practices (non necessarily dance) that need a physical involvement to be carried out.

Her creation works on two axes, which the double signification of the name Tradere illustrates : transmission and delivery. Built on four actions (running, jumping, generating movement and weight), Tradere shows the way those questions of transmission and temporality are embodied through these gestures extracted from traditional dances. 

With Tradere, Laia Santanach explores the manifestation of ritualized practices and performances, in order to capture those collective moments of festivity, where the sacrifice of the body creates a community.
