The individual and the totality. The "I" and the "other". Are we one or are we each one?
Celebrating human diversity and exploring difference and immigration through dance are the objectives of this new production by Becky Siegel, born from the participation of all the dancers in the choreographic creation.
The dancers, from very different backgrounds and with very diverse life and professional trajectories, explore through dance and their own baggage the question of immigration: the search for a new land, the arrival in a place that may not be very welcoming, the encounter with the "other," the global dance is the dance that results from the flow of people and the imperious impulse of the vital force that leads us to continue forward no matter what.
The mixture of styles such as Hip Hop, African dance or contemporary dance, gives the language a great power, an enormous expressiveness and a wide variety of nuances.
The piece is part of a broader project that seeks to look racism and xenophobia in the face, and to take steps to ensure that contemporary dance in Navarre reflects the reality of today's society.
EveryOne has been created in the Casa de Cultura of Aoiz thanks to the support of the Department of Culture of the Government of Navarra within the DNA festival. Its presentation at Museo en Danza is a consequence of the collaboration of Museo Universidad de Navarra with this festival.
