The show of Kukai Dantza, winner of four national awards, will take place at the Symphony Hall


The Auditorio de Tenerife offers Oskara. This award-winning work fuses traditional Basque dance with contemporary dance. It will be performed by the Basque company Kukai Dantza, winner of the National Dance Award. This show can be enjoyed this Sunday (17) at 7:30 p.m. in the Symphonic Hall. Oskara was awarded Best Dance Show at the 30th Huesca International Fair of Theatre and Dance and obtained three Max Awards: Best Costume Design, Best Cast, and Best Dance Show.

This project features a cast of five dancers and a singer. It is an exciting collaboration between Kukai Dantza and Marcos Morau, who is one of the most renowned choreographers in Europe today. Morau received the National Dance Award in 2013 and has worked with some of the most prestigious companies of our time. He also creates innovative works with his company, La Veronal.

Oskara is the coming together of two choreographic universes and two dance perspectives that navigate between the most popular roots and the most avant-garde expression, proposing a new scenic universe on the national scene. This installation work explores some landscapes of Basque culture and myths, from its origins to the contemporary era.

In addition to Oskara, Yarin will be performed on Saturday (16) at 7:30 p.m. in the Symphony Hall's stage box. It is a choreography by Jon Maya, the founder of the Basque company, the flamenco dancer Andrés Marín (National Dance Award winner 2022) and Sharon Fridman, a multi-award-winning dancer and choreographer. The two performers on stage are accompanied by the live music of Julen Achiary. Yarin is an encounter based on an honest dialogue, which shows us their differences and their desire to share a common path towards the future through those differences.

The Basque company's visit to the Auditorio de Tenerife will be rounded off with a workshop. It is aimed at dancers and dance students interested in learning about Basque culture and the working formula that consists of a meeting between roots and contemporary dance.

The master for this training day, which will take place this Friday (15), will be Jon Maya himself, who will give a two-hour master class.

Kukai Dantza was created in 2001 through the initiative of the dancer and choreographer Jon Maya. It carries out its work through traditional Basque dance and proposes encounters with other dance styles and ways of understanding art. Thus, Kukai creates contemporary shows through traditional Basque dance, producing unique creations and collaborations with prestigious choreographers. This has earned it an unmistakable identity on the international scene, and it is making an increasing number of appearances at festivals and on programmes all over the world. Its many awards notably include the Max Award for Best New Show in 2009 and the two 2015 Max Awards received for Gelajauziak: Best Musical Composition (Sabin Bikendi) and Best Cast.
