>> LOWLAND 2013

PREMIERE: 08/03/13 - Mercat de les Flors, Barcelona

Fascinated by the migrations of birds, we want to learn to fly. Lowland returns us to the animality of the body and movement, to learning, effort, tenacity and endurance, to beauty, the spirit of self-improvement and the spirit of freedom. To leave or to put down roots? Lowland is each individual's landscape and journey. We can only fly with our bodies and we will need ingenuity and imagination to spread open our own wings. An imaginary world of birds and men,full of light and vitality in the low ground.

"50 minutes of choreographic perfection. We ask for more." *****
Audry Chaix, Toutelaculture (Avignon)

"It is superb, magnetic, I would even dare to say hypnotic."
Jordi Cervera, Catalunya Ràdio

"Lowland is a miniature sculpted with clockmaking precision. A precise, suggesting and hypnotic dance"
Omar Khan, Susy-Q. Dance magazine

"At the end of this exhausting physical duel, both performers, panting, seemed convinced that they have actually flown. We are too"
Omar Khan, Susy-Q. Dance magazine

"Lowland has the beauty of that apparently simple".
Afonso Becerra de Becerreá, PreTextos TRC Danza

"The beautiful complicity, the freshness of the performance and the sensitive choreographic line make us certainly fly."
Sophie Bauret, La Vaucluse (Avignon)

"The magic touch of the festival."
"An extremely calibrated piece of beauty, precision and pace."
"If only one company was to be awarded with an acknowledgment Interplay 2016, this would Roser Lopez Espinosa."

Chiara Castellazzi, Il sole 24 ore (Torino)

"A marvellous odissey danced in duo: a sublime and delicate, fresh and innovative, hypnotic and captivating score."
Jean Hostache, City Local News (Avignon)

"Pure movement. The dancers managed to thrill the audience solely through dance. The duo moved on stage with a strong technique and great listening (...) and managed to bring to remembrance the flight of birds in search of freedom."
Nahuel Aguirre. Balletin Dance Magazine, Argentina

"With extraordinary control and movement power, with a measured and well-cared choreography, Lowland invites us to discover our own wings, those that only unfold and glide when we have been near the threshold of maximum effort, tenacity and our own self-improvement." María de Castro Orbea, Momiviento.com
