Oskara combines two different artistic worlds of two dance companies 

Dance performance with English and Czech surtitles

Oskara is an installation work that reviews some aspects of Basque culture, myths, from their origins to the present time, describing a plastic and emotional path of symbols and iconography with an ambiguous and disconcerting force which, in the most absolute way, contains within it the history of human experience. The dramatic code points towards a performance structured by an accentuated, almost violent, language of abstraction, where only the order of the arrangements can provide certain sensory logic.

For OskaraLa Veronal continues with its investigations into the power of the image through the opposition of the images themselves in a labyrinthine plot that creates in the audience an attractive experience of missteps and discoveries through the explosive combination of dance, text and image, and where each individual will find their own representation.

Marcos Morau / La Veronal / Kukai Dantza

Marcos Morau is one of today’s most prominent choreographers. He received the National Dance Award 2013 in Spain, and is currently working for the most prestigious dance companies, as well as on creations of his own such as the La Veronal company. This company is creating a series of works that take as a starting point a country or city in the world, creating an analogy between dance and geography. Kukai Dantza Company, National Dance Award 2017 in Spain, is considered to be a reference point in present-day culture in the Basque Country. Its director and choreographer, Jon Maya, has managed to create an original new style, which is recognisable on the international scene. The company comprises dantzaris who have been dancing since the age of 6 and have been together in the company since the age of 16. They have together evolved towards new ways of understanding performing arts in tune with modern times.
