Coreógrafos en Comunidad
Dance laboratory in Conde Duque
From 15 October 2015 to 31 December 2017
Location: Rehearsal Dance Room
A response to the need to have a space for local creative artists to meet and exchange ideas, with the firm intention of promoting dance in the local community and attracting new audiences.
Centro Cultural Conde Duque is hosting the group of independent choreographers who live and work in Madrid, known as Coreógrafos en Comunidad (Choreographers in Community). The initiative came about as a response to the need to have a space for local creative artists to meet and exchange ideas, with the firm intention of promoting dance in the local community and attracting new audiences.
The members of Coreógrafos en Comunidad work every day in one of the rehearsal rooms at Conde Duque, with the support of the choreographic platform Paso a 2. Current members of the Coreógrafos en Comunidad group are: Mey-ling Bisogno, Pablo Esbert Lilienfeld, Sharon Fridman, Camille Hanson, Janet Novás, Beatriz Palenzuela, Jesús Rubio Gamo and Manuel Rodriguez.
Every month there is a choreographic laboratory led by one of these choreographers, who may also be joined by a guest company or creative artist, as is currently the case with Ana Endorzain, Melania Olcina Yuguero, David Villanueva, Paloma Calle, Javier Cala, Elena López Nieto and dance group Omusuno, run by Cristiane Boullosa (you can find more information about the projects taking place throughout June in the downloadable file). The results of the residence are presented regularly at Conde Duque.
Coreógrafos en Comunidad is an open and inclusive collective in which any creative artist who shares these choreographic values and methods can take part. To support their work, Conde Duque provides and promotes this space for research, dialogue and dance creativity in Madrid.
