Bilbao prepares to dance


From 3 February to 29 March, Bilbao becomes an enormous stage for dance and reflection on body and space in the Dantzaldia festival, this year in its 13th edition. The festival brings different scenic proposals to the capital of Biscay to offer a kaleidoscopic view of contemporary dance.

The 2012 meeting brings us such different languages as flamenco, street dance, folklore and contemporary dance, the essence of the festival. The shows are complemented by workshops, and body and dance cinema and talks with the artists taking part, all with the aim of offering a reflection on movement and its artistic form: dance.

The festival is spread over different areas, from the large stage, such as the Euskalduna Palace or BBK Hall stage, to the invasion of other complexes. This is the case of the Guggenheim Museum or even the street itself, an ideal place to surprise spectators and shake them out of their daily activity. “We are looking for the contrast between the body’s fragility and its potential in the urban space”, they say from La Fundición, an untiring institution that keeps the life of contemporary dance alive in Bilbao, where it has now been for 25 years.

“Through its programme, the association seeks genuine assemblies and artists who had not landed in the city, and this includes both contemporary dance and flamenco companies that had been highly innovative in their time”, they report from La Fundición. “With the poetry of dance we want to enamour an audience still steeped in highly classical codes”, adds the person responsible for programming, Luque Tagua.

Dantzaldia is also a platform for new performances and bold proposals. A few years ago, Nacho Duato (a reputed Spanish dancer and choreographer) started an assembly in which he danced at the rhythm of the ‘txalaparta’ (a traditional percussion instrument from the Basque Country); the cycle was dedicated to the poetry of live music and dance.

The poster this year has an international flavour. Firstly, Abou Lagraa and the Algerian National Ballet, with a project that explores the male figure between the tradition of North Africa, street dance and contemporary dance, which will allow them certain irreverence such as dancing Ravel’s Bolero to the rhythm of hip hop. Flamenco comes at the hand of Rocío Molina, National Dance Award winner in 2010, who arrives from Seville to ask questions and take the female figure to the limit in the art of ‘jondo’ (typical Andalusian chant). “She is fragile, but has an indestructible strength at the same time”, Luque Tagua explains.
