Aracaladanza Compania de Danza is a Spanish dance company that has won international acclaim for its dance theatre made especially for children and families.

 

Under the artistic direction of Enrique Cabrera, it has been creating dance theatre that transcends narrative traditions since 1994.

 

Since then, it has won multiple awards and critical praise for its commitment to young audiences and its use of bold imagery and innovative costume design, music, movement, sets and scenery.

 

Its performances aim to provide audiences with sensory experiences activated by the choreographed movement of dancers moving through unique visual scenes and musical accompaniment.

 

At the 2019 Arts Learning Festival, Cabrera and three of his dancers will conduct workshops on elements of Constellations and Clouds, two works from the dance company’s trilogy based on the visual artwork of Joan Miro, Rene Magritte and Heironymus Bosch.

 

This event will also be part of our Community Day on Saturday 4 May 2019.

 

Learning outcomes:

 

  • Students will explore the physical and expressive qualities of dance through practising simple dance techniques and processes.
  • Students can consider how dance can become a language to express ideas and meaning through a range of choreographed movements that build physical capacity and wellbeing.
