Spring Forward

Programme 11

Roser López Espinosa, Edhem Jesenković

Sala Ovidi Montllor - Mercat de les Flors
Sunday 19 April, 2015 | 6pm–7:50pm


Fascinated by the migrations of birds, we want to learn to fly. Lowland returns us to the animality of the body and movement, to learning, effort, tenacity and endurance, to beauty, the spirit of self-improvement and the spirit of freedom. To leave or to put down roots? Lowland is each individual's landscape and journey. We can only fly with our bodies and we will need inventiveness and imagination in order to get a pair of wings. An imaginary world of birds and men, full of light and vitality in the lowland.

M.E.N grabs life by the balls.
Balancing humour and seriousness, with a healthy dose of irony, four male dancers raid the lives of modern men to give us a fresh and sensitive take on male identity. Packed with energy, fragility, passion and beauty, M.E.N exposes inner worlds and outer conflicts in this honest and athletic piece.
