Islandia | La Veronal [16/06]

One of the main failures in western thought is the relation between image and idea, where the former depends on the latter. Visual has got on top of conception. We can only leave the image behind by corrupting it; and then walk towards a new truth. This is the starting point of Islandia, a reflection of the relation between signifier and signified, of the bonds created between the image and the conception it evokes. The European country appears as a contradictory country, likely to disappear because of its landforms on it is situated, as semiotic evidence. The show is based on the mechanism of reproduction and representation of a concept, word, text, image or song, which are directly associated to an action, to a meaning that can go beyond to a new reality.

The Valencian choreographer Marcos Morau has studied in Barcelona, Valencia and New York. Interested in photography and dramaturgy, he has collaborated with Nederlands Dans Theater II and Cesc Gelabert, among others. The search for new ways of expression and a powerful narrative language are the main signs of La Veronal, a new company consisting of artists coming from diverse art fields. Former works are Suecia (2008), Maryland (2009) and Russia (2011).
