Lava is travelling to Pamplona to perform at Navarra University’s Teatro del Museo. The group resident at the Auditorio de Tenerife is putting on a double programme at 7:30 pm on Friday the 22nd. Their show includes the pieces Bending the Walls, by choreographer Fernando Hernando Magadan, and Beyond, by La intrusa’s Virginia García and Damián Muñoz. At 12:00 noon on the same day, the company’s artistic director, Daniel Abreu, will have a meeting with the audience.

This double programme, which was the first show the company put on a year ago, reaches Navarra as part of the section Museo en Danza of the university’s cultural centre. In the morning, the same venue is hosting a meeting with Daniel Abreu, Premio Nacional de Danza 2014 [National Dance Award], to talk about the Tenerife dancer’s career and his work with the company, which started in 2018.

Bending the Walls is an exploration of the world of restrictions and limitations in the search for happiness, freedom and understanding. Through the piece, the physical and psychological limits of the individual and the surrounding world are explored. It is a metaphor about the psychological, physical and emotional forces human beings can approach in order to reach beyond palpable reality, overcome sorrow and escape into the world of the imagination.

Beyond deals with the experience of searching through the emotional landscapes of memory, presenting a scenario full of uncertainties, which forces us to create or reflect on our own life and on the landscape every individual shapes for themselves either consciously or unconsciously.

Lava’s calendar continues on 1 December, at the Auditorio de Tenerife where at 7:00 pm they will premiere their new double programme, created by two choreographers, Hush, by Israeli Roy Assaf, and Yalacha, by Korean Dong Kyu Kim, to be presented at the Festival de Artes Escénicas Telón Tenerife. Also, on 5 December the dance company is travelling to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to perform their new repertoire at Teatro Pérez Galdós.

Tickets for Lava’s premiere on 1 December are available through Auditorio de Tenerife’s usual sale channels: at the box office from 10:00 am to 7:30 pm Monday to Saturday except holidays; via the website  or calling 902 317 327. On the day of the performance, the box office will open two hours before the show starts.
