Cumplicidades

The name “Cumplicidades” arises from the will to build bridges, not only between contemporary dance and its audiences, but also between structures, spaces, artists, the public and partners.

CUMPLICIDADES is a festival dedicated to contemporary dance centered on the principles of reinvention and diversity. With a different duo of programmers every edition, the festival stands out for always having its programmatic line renewed and still being a partner of host spaces ranging from traditional venues to alternative venues.

7x7x7

CUMPLICIDADES 2018 brings together two daring proposals: the one of Tânia Carvalho is based on repetition, with 7 performances in 7 consecutive days of presentation; Abraham Hurtado challenged a collective of artists selected by an open call, focused on the variation and difference, with the reconfiguration of the same artistic proposal in 7 different spaces, in the same 7 days. Against the current programming practices, the Festival provides the possibility to see several dance performances for a week long. Now, it’s up to the audience to respond to this challenge, enjoying creative universes and stimulating aesthetic incursions, gathered by two eyes attentive to the contemporary dance scene, without neglecting what happens in its margins.

Abraham Hurtado

Abraham Hurtado was born in Murcia, Spain, in 1972. He is a performer and Visual Artist. Hurtado has collaborated with numerous visual artists as well as worked in diverse theater and dance companies, both national and international.

TÂNIA CARVALHO

Tânia Carvalho moves frequently from the field of choreography to that of musical composition.
Tânia Carvalho affirms herself as an artist whose will to expression is not exhausted in one single
language.
Her creations wander through the shadows, the vivification of painting , expressionism and the
memory of cinema.
Hence the artist constructs her mysterious cosmogony, a set of codes that transcend the very art of
movement – whether this should take place in the linguistic and semantic carefulness that she
inscribes in the titles of her work .
Or in the frequent passing through territories more distanced from that of choreography, like
drawing.
Over almost two decades, Tânia Carvalho has been paving her way: thoughtfully and each time more multidisciplinary.
