Todos los nombres | Mal Pelo [15/06]

Todos los nombres is a journey of discovery among the names that identify and make up a particular body. The show is a reflection on definition and confirmation of the self through names. In this solo, dancer María Muñoz starts from the idea that naming is shaping the will of figuring out what we are, what explains us. The texts for the show are inspired by Carlos Thiebaut’s book, A History of Naming. María Muñoz and the Madrilenian philosopher established an intense dialogue during the process of creation of the show, which counts with the contribution of the writer John Berger.

In 1989 María Muñoz and Pep Ramis founded Mal Pelo. Mal Pelo has always had as a key goal the permanent search for languages. The roaming during the first years has helped to deepen in the idea of exchange, which crystallized in 2001 with the creation of the L’animal a la esquena. This centre encourages experimentation and conversation between artists in the province of Girona. Some of the most important titles among its extensive work include Atrás los ojos, Bach, Testimoni de llops and He visto caballos.
