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.
