Together to Get There
Lali Ayguadé and Akira Yoshida
Friday / 10 Nov / 19:30 h
To discover through dance the magic of the encounter with the other, the common feeling of a time together. That changing space of complicity that inhabits the relationships between people is shown intimately and openly through movement.
A meeting between two, an embrace, the feeling of the other, communication without words, the feeling of time immersed in a world created between two. A mutual support. A time that expands and stops as if it would never end.
A transformation, a change. Parts begin to fall, others to hold. That instant is forgotten and the differences come to light: the polar opposites, the fragility and the strength; the letting go and the desire for control. Balance and instability. True human nature.
Together to Get There was born from the collaboration of Lali Ayguadé and Akira Yoshida after a joyful experience of previous collaboration. It is a production that emerged from the creative residencies of DNA 2023-Festival de Danza de Navarra of the Government of Navarra and its presentation at Museo en Danza is a consequence of the collaboration of Museo Universidad de Navarra with this edition.
