They will present the shows Typical, Gelajauziak y Komunikazioa Inkomunikazioa in the festival that will come to an end on May 5. This yearly appointment is known as one of the most influential street art festivals of the southern Europe.

Eskena is aldo showing the Basque companies’ work in a stand promoted by the Basque Government. This festival allows knowing different people and strengthening relations inside the theatre world context.

Gaupasa: Typical

Working since 1999, Gaupasa is well known in the Basque theatre environment. Now, they are producing some shows with Nacho Vilar producciones;  Typical, created with the help of the Basque Government, is one of them.

Typical brings us back to the 70th century.  Those days, tourism was increasing in a new society, and the TV was the only evading way for some people. This show is a mirror for those who lived in that century, and a way to know it for those who didn’t. 

The show mixes music, choreographies and fire.

Kukai Dantza & Cesc Gelabert : Gelajauziak

This project focuses on two different popular dances: the soinu zarrak from Guipuzkoa and the dantzaz-jauziak form Lapurdi. Two dances, each from a different side of the border, which have lived generation after generation.

The show will also be a mixture of modern and traditional dancing created by the great Catalonian choreographer Cesc Gelabert, Jon Maya and the dancers of the company Kukai. They will present it at street, in a social environment.

Kukai-Tanttaka: Komunikazioa Inkomunikazioa

The project, carried out with the help of the Basque Government, resolves around the communication and the non-communication. Singing, dancing, shouting…they communicate and non-communicate. A mixture of all of those elements becomes the show created by the Teatro Arriaga, Kukai and Tanttaka Teatro.

Mikel Laboa used to work on the dichotomy between communication and non-communication, and he inspired lot of artists like the authors of this theatre.
