PLUMMET, a sharp dive down in three acts   [2017]
A creation for FTS Folkwang Tanzstudio, Essen. Social exclusion, the inability to adapt to certain situations and failure to let go and free oneself from the past are the main themes of this work. Inspired on Genesis 19, thematically, the action serves as a metaphor for the narrative of Lot's wife: "Flee for your life! Do not look behind you, nor stop anywhere in the Plain; flee to the hills, lest you be swept away." But Lot´s wife looked back at the destroyed city of Sodom and was turned into a pillar of salt.  
Dancers: Chih-ming Yu, Uwe Brauns, Ying Yung Chen, Stephanie Miracle, Nejma Larichi, Jan Möllmer, Eva Pageix, Simon Wolant, Shan Gao and Chih-i Wu.  

WAZ.de - 21.01.2017   "PLUMMET (the fall) pushes the dancers into the announced `sharp dive´... Powerful, complex patterns of movement are elegantly integrated into a continuous flow of current. In Essen, as a guest choreographer, he [Iker Arrue] left a good business card."

Grooming  [2015_16]
​’Grooming’ (preying sexually on a child) reflects on the psychological aspect of not fulfilling social expectations and the inner conflicts that arise from it, the way in which communication between people can often be perverted and the very human need to escape their immediate reality (fake identities, lies, manipulation, unfulfilled desires, loneliness, desire, fear, violence, guilt…etc.). Social exclusion, deviance, individualism and social acceptance. are a clear reflection on the complexity of the human being and the fact that people do not lie by choice. As a poetic exercise, this journey to your inner self is almost an exercise in obscurantism… essential for any artist, but also for anybody.

Dancers: Carmen Fumero and Iker Arrue.

Invisible Beauty [2014]

 

​The goal of this work is to share a  reflection  on the relationship between an Alzheimer´s-stricken father and his son,  where the patient  and his  disrupted view  of reality become the only reference for the audience.

 

Invisible Beauty attempts to find beauty in images and situations that in a first glance would just reflect horror or sadness.

Retratos de la Belle Époque  [2013]

Portraits of the Belle Époque is a piece that metaphorically illustrates the new individualism of modern man and his interest in the image projected in their social environment.

 

The portrait was the most representative painting in its genre during the period known as Belle Époque (1870-1914). Taking the evolution of this genre during that time as a reference, the piece suggests a look into the complex pictorial movements of the Belle Époque. While decoding the iconographic and psychological keys of  this period, it attepmts to build bridges between the history of painting, social and cultural history of both the beginning of the century and nowadays, and with contemporary dance.

 

Dancers: Yadira Rodríguez, Verónica García Moscardó and Gustavo Ramírez.

Ojos en la nuca  [2012]

​​ 

Based on the work, as developed for several years by ZYGMUNT BAUMAN, JUAN ANGEL URRUZOLA and  ANTONI MUNTADAS  about  the knowledge assimilated through senses and the ways of  understanding reality through the body, Ojos en la nuca proposes the study of human behavior when facing shortcomings that in normal situations are rarely considered;  absence  or losses that could be translated as the lack of any of five senses.

 

Dancers: Carmen Fumero and Iker Arrue.
