ARTÈRIA TORTOSA returns, the multidisciplinary performing arts festival directed by Roberto Olivan From October 13 to 16, the second edition of ARTÈRIA TORTOSA arrives, the multidisciplinary performing arts festival directed by dancer and choreographer Roberto Olivan. The contest was born last year as a result of joint work between Tortosa City Council and ROPA / Roberto Olivan Performing Arts in the framework of the Capital of Catalan Culture, a title held by the capital of Baix Ebre. The festival was created with the intention of becoming an annual interdisciplinary show that combines performing arts with science, technology and nature, in an artistic space that invites to link new artistic and social languages. A total of eight shows have been scheduled, in addition to complementary events such as conferences and music sessions with DJs. ARÈRIA TORTOSA will bring culture to various spaces in the city, to reclaim cultural facilities and public spaces and also to rediscover unique buildings and places. The shows have been scheduled at the Felip Pedrell Auditorium, the Teodor Gonzàlez Municipal Park, the Saló del Polvorí de Parador and the Crypt of the Church of Reparation. Performing arts in unique spaces The second edition of ARTÈRIA TORTOSA will begin with the show La dansa de l'invisible, an own production of the festival, with scientific popularizer Pere Estupinyà and dancer Anna Hierro, both from Tortosa. The play, which can be seen in the Felip Pedrell Auditorium (Thursday 13 at 8:30 p.m. in the Felip Pedrell Auditorium), is a danced lecture, in which movement and words join hands to dialogue and analyze like science it allows us to understand the invisible world around us. The invisible dance was one of the successes of last year's program, which the festival has decided to bring back in 2022. On the other hand, the dancer Mercedes Pedroche will present TERRARIO [La tierna indiferencia del mundo] (Friday 14 at 9 p.m. at Auditori Felip Pedrell) a show in which six characters find themselves in an unknown space without an entrance door or departure They do not know where they come from or where they are going and, above all, they have no guidelines for judging each other. At the end, outside the Auditorium you will be able to see the latest production of the Brincadeira company, a street show entitled PERCULIGHTS in which movement, rhythm and percussion generate dynamics of light and color in real time. Saturday 15, La Caliope Cia will present ÁINE (two passes at 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. in the Saló del Polvorí) a show inspired by Áine, the goddess of the sky in Celtic mythology and the queen of the Irish fairies, representative of pure love and sexuality. The Crypt of the Church of Reparation will host MILK, Camille Guillaume's latest work (two shows at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.), an evocative performance that combines dance with a universe close to physical theater. To close the day, Instituto Stocos will show OECUMENE (at 9:00 p.m. in the Felip Pedrell Auditorium) a piece in which dance and interactive music interact. On Sunday the 16th, you can see PELAT by Joan Català, a proposal that erases the borders between dance, circus and theatre; between audience and show. The show recovers, in a particular way, the looks of the jobs done by hand and without technological means. (11:00 a.m. Central promenade of Teodor Gonzàlez Municipal Park). ARÈRIA TORTOSA will culminate with GOLD, the latest production by Roberto Olivan Performing Arts (12:30 p.m. at Felip Pedrell Auditorium), a show that reflects on the richness of diversity, on inner truths, everyday normalities and gold (the light ) that we all carry inside. Every night, in front of the Felip Pedrell auditorium, there will be live music by guest DJs, activities that will close each of the three days of Artèria Tortosa 2021.
