Crash becomes the collapse of two bodies, of two souls united to melt together, but also to get lost and break apart. It is not a story, it does not explain who its characters are, what they do or what they are worth. It only shows a fragment, an interval in which the two characters cross paths, crash head-on and teeter on the brink.

 

Olga Álvarez has been a professional dancer since 2002. She has been artistic director of the Festival Danza También for five years. In 2004, together with Leyre Llano, she created Cia. La Taimada, merging video creation with contemporary dance, theater and performance. Together with Jordi Cabestany (visual artist), they have been co-directing the company since 2015, reformulating dance and lending a new focus to the perspective, image and work of the body. Since then they have created Crash, Lo.Li.Ta, La Mort, to name a few. They are currently in the process of creating El Jardí, a work inspired by Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights.
