'Seguimos enteras', starring the choreographer herself and Acerina H. Toledo, will take place this weekend with two shows


The Auditorio de Tenerife Adán Martín is scheduling the world premiere of the new work Seguimos enteras for this weekend, directed by Carmen Werner, National Dance Award winner. This production is by Provisional Danza, gestionART-e and Cía. El Jablero stars the choreographer herself and the Lanzarote dancer Acerina H. Toledo. The two shows take place on Friday (6th) and Saturday (7th) at 7:30 p.m. in the Sala Castillo.

This new creation is based on the premise that everything has a starting point and it considers the world as a game in which people only need to connect with life in order to realise that everyone has the right to make a fool of themselves. Not placing importance on the opinion of others is presented here as an inalienable right. This piece maintains that the fear of looking foolish when you want to fulfil your dreams is one of the main demotivators and predators of our drive and creativity.

Carmen Werner is a renowned figure in contemporary dance, recognised with the Gold Medal for Merit in the Fine Arts in 2020. In 2007, the Ministry of Culture awarded her the National Dance Award in the Performance category, and in 2001 she won the Third Prize at the First International Onassis Competition. She also received the Culture Prize in the Dance section of the Community of Madrid in 2000 and the Mention Prize at the XIII Cinema Festival of Girona. Her impact is reflected in the awarding of La llave en forga (Wrought-iron Key) by the Puerta al Mediterráneo Festival for her dance trajectory, and the Culiacán Award for Choreography in 2015. Trained in classical and contemporary dance in Madrid, Barcelona, and London, she founded Provisional Danza in 1987.

Acerina H. Toledo, a native of Lanzarote, trained in Tenerife, Gran Canarias, Madrid, and Nantes, which gave her a different perspective. She is the director of the Traslación Dance Festival and of the Cúrcuma hall. Alongside Juan Cabrera, she founded the Company El Jablero, producing Divino desierto. She has worked producing works such as Conversaciones entre plumas and La orilla de mi piel through the company, as well as the Traslación Dance Festival, bringing dance to unconventional places in Lanzarote. Her devotion and creativity have made a significant impact on contemporary dance.
