Just a Dancer
Premiere: 28th February 2014 in the SAT!
Whit the support of Obra Social La Caixa, programme “Arte para la mejora social”
Having been invited to create a touring work for Stopgap, one of Europe’s leading integrated dance companies from the UK, Thomas Noone became interested in experimenting with artists in Barcelona and his own company back In Barcelona.
The project consisted in inviting four guest dancers with disabilities to join four regular members of the company and together embark on a four week creative process. The result was a show performed at the SAT theatre as well as at the Una Mirada Diferente festival in Madrid.
Just a Dancer was about finding a common language that could thread together solo, duet and choral choreography whilst permitting individuality and virtuosity and centred on the meaning of the work’s title, 8 performers all together, just dancers dancing.
