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.
