Vision and Aim

Choreographer and solo performer Gelabert sets the style by his personal vision of movement.

His concepts are adapted and worked on the dancer, without losing the personal identity of the performer.

In selecting the dancers, the performers are recruited from different backgrounds with a strong technical vocabulary. Gelabert lays emphasis on the authenticity of movement and interpretation.

The choreographies are based on and inspired by various themes. They do not tell a linear story.

The company has earned a high reputation through the years, and therefore has achieved large and diverse audiences. The aim is to create quality, and bring dance to the widest audiences possible.
