Meeting point in Córdoba: dance moves to the street

The bridge that connects Parque Sarmiento with Parque de las Tejas, on Chacabuco avenue, is a stage for dance.


Companies and groups of different aesthetic characteristics, some identified with the ballet repertoire and others with the urban avant-garde, will unfold their choreographies on the bridge, next Friday the 17th, starting at 7 p.m.


During the activity, entitled Bridge-Body-Dance, the public will be able to enjoy a variety of expressions and styles in the art of representing emotions and circumstances through body movement.


The bridge represents the possibility of communication, of being a meeting point for crossings as well. Such conditions motivate the use of this space for the development of differences, coincidences and applaud the movement.


A no less important aspect is the possibility of generating actions between different orders of the artistic community and public institutions.


The details


The BLICK Danza Teatro Company presents “¿Te bailo?”, a collective of artists invites the public to listen to the same things as the dancers through headphones and dare to dance.


The Classical Dance Seminar “Nora Irinova” continues the grid with Yo soy …, based on the show Proyecto 21, presented last month at the Teatro del Libertador San Martín. Under the direction of Marcelo Mangini, the choreography is composed in contemporary jazz language and highlights the technical and interpretive strengths of dancers studying at the seminary.


NN, in turn, unfolds with Robotic Trinity, a bet related to the genre called Popping, and to Streetdance styles. Germán Massimino is the choreographer, while Tomás Sanabria and Paula Miranda are the interpreters.



Next, it is the turn of the Municipal Dance Theater cast with the Laughter of the Mysterious version. Contemporary dance, under the direction of the teacher Marina Sarmiento, is present in the work of the plastic artist Antonio Seguí; “We invite their characters to travel through a meaningless universe where the light and the seriousness of laughter erupts and exceeds language,” explains the company.


In Project 6, the teachers Ana Castro Merlo and Viviana Fernández present Garza Mora, based on an ancient set of melodies and songs from Venezuela that recall the work of the field: in the farming, in the corn, in the land and its idiosyncrasy.


Later on, the Classical Dance Seminar returns to the scene with Yo vengo offering mi corazón, a work associated with the neoclassical language, with the interpretations of Alexander Gigena Emmnecker and Agustina Jaimes. The artistic direction belongs to Maria Esther Triviño.


Folk dance is in charge of the Municipal Ballet of the City of Córdoba with Por siempre Chango. The group pays tribute to the singer-songwriter Chango Rodríguez, author of Luna cautiva, among other great hits from the folk songbook.


The closing will be carried out by Mbore and Wongai Mbore with AFRO, under the coordination, choreography and interpretation of Valentin Rodríguez. The ensemble is a relevant actor in the Afro-Mandingue culture. The proposal highlights “the potential of an expression that has been growing and dialoguing in the Argentine territory for more than 20 years, together with the different diaspora movements, and other expressions,” according to the group.
