The Department of Culture of the City of Martorell, with the support of the Association of Dance Professionals of Catalonia (APdC), the Generalitat de Catalunya and the Diputació de Barcelona, ​​program the fifth edition of the festival Fem Dansa, from 4 to 7 November. The circuit offers dance performances and related training activities, and spreads this discipline in order to give it visibility.

The Councilor for Culture, Andreu González, points out that “Fem Dansa is a cycle of different proposals, some more participatory and others professional, which have to do with the performing arts, with dance. Elderly people and dance schools take part, but we will also have three professional shows. One of them will be aimed at children, another will feature aerial dance, which is quite unknown and spectacular, and the Sol Picó, National Dance Award, which will be accompanied by pianist Marco Mezquida. We will continue to bet on the dissemination of this discipline that has the values ​​of effort, dedication to the art of beauty and plasticity when dancing ”.

The Fem Dansa will start on November 4, at 5 pm, in Plaça de Les Cultures with the exhibition ‘Dance, dance with the elderly’. Organized by the Esplai de Gent Gran de Buenos Aires, users will perform an exhibition of different rhythms and invite the public to join.

Ship 2 of Ca n’Oliveres will host on Friday 5 November, at 9 pm, Utopian vs. Dystopian, a performative show from the Espai Dansa de Martorell where, through the language of movement, an ephemeral work has been created where scenes of everyday reality that take place in terms opposite to those of an ideal society will be exposed. The director of the Espai Dansa, Carme Vea, explains that “there are a total of six scenes and each of them deals with a specific theme, talking about the chaos in which one goes from the utopian to the dystopian”.

The next day, the Rambla de les Bòbiles will give rise to the different performances of the dance schools of the municipality. At 12.00, the choreographies will take place by El Progrés Dance School, the New Dance and the Buenos Aires Leisure Center. At 5 pm, the schools Baila Descalza, Espai Dansa and Escola de Dansa Sònia Navarro will approach.

On Saturday night, at 9 pm, ‘Aerodreams’ will take place in Hall 2 of Ca n’Oliveres. This aerial dance and music show will transport us to a world of dreams, through the eyes of a little girl and her magical friends. ‘Aerodreams’ is based “on the struggle between good and evil within this girl’s dreams. The good, however, always has its power and will always win ”, comments Oracio Caiti, one of the choreographers of the show together with Sònia Navarro.

The last day of the festival will feature two more shows at El Progrés. The first will be ‘Mira Miró’ by the company Baal Dansa, which will group dance and animation in equal parts, focusing its story on the little ones. The work is part of a selection of Joan Miró’s graphic work and, magically, we will see how the paintings come alive and transport us to an imaginary universe. “It is a work that has already been seen around the world, as we have been to Panama, Greece, Germany and Turkey, and in Spain we have about 130 functions,” says Gaspar Morey, one of the members of the company.

The second of the shows will come from the hand of Sol Picó and Marco Mezquida, who will bring us ‘Cita a cegues’, a love story where you only need the language of music and movements. The choreographer and protagonist of the show, Sol Picó, mentions that “it is a meeting between two worlds, between two people who do not know each other and how it is evolving”.
