Zero Visibility

zero visibility corp. was founded in 1996. The company is based in Oslo, Norway, and makes an average of one production a year. They had their international breakthrough with “…it’s only a rehearsal” in 2003, which has been performed on over a hundred occasions. The company is touring worldwide with performances of both smaller and medium scale and the production involve partnerships with several international co-producers and
collaborators. Since forming, the company has been marked by Ina Christel Johannessen’s particular choreographic style. The artistic work is characterized by a striking physical and technical expression, allowing the dancers to excel, but simultaneously she expresses in her work the complexity of human life, our feelings, emotions and conditions. The composition is built up around the physically visual and audible space and the actions of the dancers. Proximity and distance, strength and fragility exist side by side.

Crida Company

Cridacompany es una compañía de circo franco-catalana fundada en Tolosa en 2006, tras el encuentro en el Lido (Centro de las artes del circo de Tolosa) entre Jur Domingo Escofet y Julien Vittecoq, directores y coreógrafos. Desde Suecia hasta México pasando por el continente africano, proponen espectáculos extraños y poderosos, donde el virtuosismo se combina con la invención de un nuevo lenguaje, entre el circo y la danza, el canto y la
actuación. Trabajan sobre la prevención, la barrera y la tensión, criando así personajes y situaciones exhibiendo un humor desconcertante. En fotografía como en el escenario, juegan con el cuerpo y sus posibilidades. Adoptando un estilo libre, se complacen en captar una mirada nueva sobre las situaciones, dándole rienda suelta a las emociones (¿interpretaciones?), de las más agradables hasta las más inquietantes.
