NEW LANGUAGES FOR NEW AUDIENCES
UNDER 25 Routes starts with this laboratory that will draw the conceptual framework of the project such as research in ( new ) languages and (new ) dramaturgies, ( new ) audiences and the relationship with public, and ( new ) spaces for residence.
To open the discussion on these questions we propose facilitators from different work: the creation, support of the creative processes (residences) and the research into new audiences and working with them. The experts who will take part in this process are: Cristina Blanco, Bea Fernandez (La Poderosa), Roger Bernat, Agost Produccions and La Dula.
The format of the laboratory will be theoretical-practical and will combine internal sessions with open sessions.
- Tuesday 28th June, from 5,30 pm to 8,30pm: OPEN SOURCE with Cristina Blanco
- Wednesday 29th June, from 10,30 am to 1,30 pm: TO BE BETWEEN BEING WITHIN with Bea Fernández
- Friday 1st July, from 18,30pm to 20,30pm: PUBLIC/ AUDIENCE with Roger Bernat, Agost Produccions and La Dula

OPEN SOURCE with Cristina Blanco

Begin from any part.
I propose the sharing of some referents, concepts, and tools that I use in my works (or that motivate me to begin working) with the objective that the assistants use them, dissect them, and/or find their own.
TO BE BETWEEN BEING WITHIN with Bea Fernández
Beatriz Fernández. Dancer, choreographer, researcher, and curator
Cofounder of the Las Santas collective, Beatriz is member of ARTAS and the artistic co-director of La Poderosa, a space of creation and research in the world of dance in Barcelona.
Ciudad de Barcelona 2015 award winner in the field of dance.
Bachelor’s degree holder in contemporary dance and choreography at the Institut del Teatre de Barcelona amplifying her studies at the Center for Movement Research in New York City; she works as an interpreter with Danat Danza and collaborates frequently with the choreographer, Carmelo Salazar, participating in numerous pieces like “Europa no es una Puta”, “Especiales”, and “El Salon Dorado”, among others. She has created the solos “Escorzo”, “I have a dream”, and “Cuerpo en Escena” in collaboration with Olga Mesa. In 2008 she developed a project centered on the figure of the interpreter as memory and live archive. The project is featured in the audiovisual document, Los Ques se Ven Entre Si and in the scenic piece, “Tres Personas, Todos los Cuerpos”.
Beatriz developed “Muy Experimental”, a project of investigation which culminated in the scenic piece, “Este Lugar Entre”.
Six years ago, she cultivated an academic research study involving investigation labs of the body directed towards student and professional dancers interested in the construction of the interpreter´s real-time presence.
I propose a time of finding of the body as a tool for the creation of new spaces of thought, and the observation of the body as subject of the action, and of play as a group learning and experiential device.
A meeting for the investigation that operates between academics and the performing arts:
To be between being within
Between meaning and sense
Intending to part away from the first to dive deeper into the latter
I propose the challenge of a practice that implies other times and other spaces… in the silence that we open and in the movement carried by the bodies, we will take the word.
A space and a time of an event which practices in a search and comprehension of the world and the ethical, political, and affective movements from the active experience of a body-person transitioning in a space-context and in a present-time.
We will practice a body that tasks a asks itself more than it affirms itself, that places itself in the place of uncertainty and puts holes this way in the previously conformed languages, recuperating the capacity to look, listen, say, do, and perceive from the common experience.
