The Taiwanese dance group Cloud Gate and the Spanish ensemble of Jesús Rubio Gamo will close a month of dance that opens with Led Silhouette.


The Auditorio de Tenerife offers three dance shows in December, two of them in large format: 13 Tongues by the company Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan, which will have two performances on the 20th and 21st of December. Acciones sencillas (Simple actions), a proposal by Jesús Rubio Gamo, takes place on the 22nd. The Moving Arts Festival FAM offers tickets for these three shows at 15 euros each, with special discounts available for those under 30, students, unemployed individuals, and large families.

13 Tongues, created by the choreographer and artistic director of the Taiwanese company, Cheng Tsung-Lung, is based on his memories of his mother's stories about a popular storyteller who is said to have fascinating abilities. This show is an immersive experience of bright colours, shapes and images. During the performance, the dancers depict the vibrant life and culture of Taipei's oldest neighbourhood, home to the ensemble's director. They dance to a mix of Taiwanese folk songs, Taoist chants, and electronic music. 13 Tongues is currently touring Spain thanks to the support of the Ministry of Culture R.O.C. (Taiwan) and the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Spain

On the other hand, the Madrid-based dancer and choreographer Jesús Rubio Gamo develops his work under the premise of the complexity of simplicity. Five flamenco dancers and three flamenco singers perform in Acciones sencillas, including Blanca Paloma, Spain's representative at Eurovision 2023. It is a co-production with the Conde Duque Contemporary Culture Center Madrid, the GREC Festival of Barcelona and the Festival Romaeuropa. The piece was nominated for Best Choreography at the 2021 Critics’ Awards of Catalonia.

On December 16th at 7:30 p.m., the Symphony Hall stage will host "Los Perros" (The Dogs), a performance by Led Silhouette and Marcos Morau. The audience will also be seated on the stage for this event. "Los Perros" aims to inspire a sense of resilience to discover the purpose of our lives and to overcome violence and adversity together.
