This Saturday, as part of the FAM programme, Teatro Paraíso proposes a world of movement and textures inspired by Balenciaga


The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural venue linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island's Council managed by its island's Minister of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. Now, it presents the dance performance Ehunarecommended for children from one to five years old. The family proposal of the festival FAM Otoño (Autumn Moving Arts), performed by Teatro Paraíso, takes place on Saturday [29th] at 5:00 p.m. in the Chamber Hall.

Ehuna is a performance for young children that explores the way in which the body relates to movement, doing so through pieces of fabric, felt, and clothing. The creative universe of Cristóbal Balenciaga is the starting point of this proposal. According to the prestigious Spanish fashion designer, harmony has to combine three elements perfectly: the dress, the body, and the air.

His revolutionary concept and his fascination with the fluidity and emptiness that separates the body from the clothing take the stage in this production with which Teatro Paraíso interpret the work of the brilliant Basque fashion designer, taking as a starting point the notion that "the dress is the first inhabited space”. On stage, the body, the fabrics, the dresses, and the air immerses      the little spectators in a poetic and profound world.

Distinguished with the National Award for Performing Arts for Children and Youth of 2012, the Teatro Paraíso company has a solid 40-year history on stage. Four decades in which the company has consolidated a cultural structure which carries out a global intervention project related to theatre, childhood, and artistic education and undertakes continuous creation and training initiatives for audiences from Álava.

Recognised in the sector as an innovative company in terms of its subject matter, formats, and way of working, Teatro Paraíso has permanently opted for quality and continuous improvement, establishing an ongoing commitment to the public, society, and the profession.

The FAM Autumn programme continues with The Gestring Sisters, with the piece A Muerte. It takes place on 19 November at 7:30 p.m. at Castillo Hall (Sala Castillo). The creators, along with David Climent, have devised a show whose title is presented as a slogan, as a form of life and as a declaration of intent for any performance.

Lastly, Poliana Lima is bringing a female dancer troupe for her show Las cosas se mueven pero no dicen nada, a piece that is based on the idea of permanence and insistence and which evokes the processes of transformation and repetition of nature, without alluding to the extras on stage. It will be on 17 December at 7:30 p.m. at the Symphony Hall.

FAM (Arts and Movement Festival), a proposal of Auditorio de Tenerife and a commitment to Spanish contemporary dance, comes alongside the artistic circuit supported by the National Institute of Performing Arts and Music (INAEM) and developed by the Spanish Network of Theatres: Danza a Escena 2022.
