Marcos Morau – La Veronal

Marcos Morau forms in choreography at the Institut del Teatre de Barcelona, the Conservatorio Superior de Danza de Valencia and Movement Research in New York, obtaining the highest score on the final project and the extraordinary award of the Institut del Teatre. In recent years he made his choreographic assistantship project in the Nederlands Dans Theater II and the company IT Dansa. His artistic skills are not limited to dance but extended into disciplines such as photography and drama, studying the Master in Theory of Drama. His main trainers are Tomás Aragay, Hilde Koch from William Forsythe’s, Kazuko Hirabayashi, and Roberto Fratini among others.

In 2005 he created La Veronal, company formed by artists from the dance, film, photography and literature. The artistic team purpose lies directly on a constant search for new expressive media, for cultural references – cinema, literature, music and photography, mostly – to bet on a strong narrative language with the intention of forming global art spaces. As Kieslowski did in the eighties, La Veronal is creating a Decalogue where each piece’s background takes as a starting point a country or city in the world, creating an analogy between dance and geography. The pieces do not intend to become as documentary films that describe the country directly, but makes use of the elements that the name provides to carry out the development of an idea, an argument.

Brodas Bros

La compañía Brodas se crea en el año 2006 cuando Pol y Lluc Fruitós, después de numerosas actuaciones y workshops, deciden dar un nombre a todo el trabajo que ellos dirigen. Brodas no es más que la palabra que utilizan los americanos “brothers” (hermanos) escrita tal como suena con nuestro acento. Han creado: “HIP HOP, danza urbana”; un espectáculo lúdico y didáctico. Este espectáculo narra la historia del hip hop y cuenta sus diferentes estilos, es un espectáculo que se adapta a todo tipo de escenarios y que transmite ganas de bailar.

Después crean el primer espectáculo pensado para teatro: “IVA incluido” que realizó una gira nacional durante el 2009 y se presentó en diversos festivales. “IVA incluido” cuenta con siete bailarines, un músico en directo (batería), una producción musical, un diseño de luces, un buen management y otros componentes que han hecho que este show de 65 minutos haya sido todo un éxito y diera como resultado la última gran producción “BRODAS BROS” estrenada en el Teatro Zorrilla de Badalona en diciembre de 2009 y realizando una temporada en el Teatro Victòria de Barcelona durante 9 semanas en las que han asistido 23.400 espectadores.
