Da.Te Danza (‘Akari’, ‘What is my name’) arrives at the Cuyás Theater with a new show, ‘Nudos’, of which it will offer a single function for families next Saturday, November 21, at 7:00 p.m. and for the one with tickets still available, both at the box office and on the web www.teatrocuyas.com.
Before that ‘special’ pass, the Granada company has another four functions planned only for schoolchildren sponsored, in the morning and at symbolic prices, by the Mapfre Guanarteme Foundation within the framework of the Cuyás, Teatrae pedagogical project.
In this sense, the Gran Canaria Cabildo site is one of the few spaces that, in times of Covid, has continued to offer this essential cultural offer, something possible thanks to its strong social commitment, but also to the efforts of the centers participating in Teatrae, and, in particular, of its teachers.
Thus, only in the last month, in addition to ‘Nudos’, it has programmed functions of the shows ‘Amour’, by the prestigious Basque company Marie de Jongh, and ‘Ángaro’, by the Canarian Pieles, especially aimed at children and young people.
Learn to untangle to learn to live
Da.Te Danza investigates in ‘Knots’ in the personal development of the child as he grows: how we are learning to function, to create and undo links with our environment and the people around us.
It is a show created for people over five years old (it barely lasts 45 minutes) from the first emotional knot: the umbilical cord that unites us to our mothers.
From there, the story grows as its three characters, played by María José Casado Díaz, Raúl Durán Muñoz and Gonzalo Moreno, do.
With each experience, new knots are created that surround, oppress, condition and, finally, liberate when unraveling.
“There are a thousand types and forms: small, large, light, hard … Sometimes they tie in the throat and prevent us from breathing; other times, they cling to the belly and paralyze us, and others tie us to experiences and people “, they explain from the company, which details:” Soft, hard, huge, small knots, made of fabric or fear, cold or burning. Knots that wrap us and make us roll in them. Or that we swallow and hardly They let us talk. Sailor knots or cat hair knots, knots from an absence that hurt …
“How does a lump look at four years old? How is it distinguished from a stomach or sore throat? What does it look like when we are eight years old? What scar does the passage of a knot leave when we are adults?” of the questions that dancers will try to answer through dance, to ultimately help the little ones understand “how experiences in life leave traces, generate different moods and make us be as we are “.
At prices that range between six and twelve euros for children under 14 years of age and between eight and 15 for those over that age, tickets for the family function of ‘Nudos’ are on sale in the web www.teatrocuyas.com and at the box office of the venue, on Viera y Clavijo street in the capital of Gran Canaria.
