Sanchis, Salva

Islands is a project of Salva Sanchis that runs continuously through the years 2014 and 2015. It consists of a collection of small dance pieces that will be presented both individually and in different combinations. There are solos, duets and trios ranging from 1 to 12 minutes long each. Each piece has its own separate identity, and together they form a diverse but specific movement and choreographic landscape.

Islands is born out of the choreographic challenge of creating dances of short duration that are completely autonomous in their dramaturgy. Islands is to dance what short stories are to literature, or what songs are to music. The audience will have the opportunity of witnessing dances that don’t unfold into a bigger story, that don’t relate to a hidden master structure. Instead, each Island exists on its own, and because of that each Island doesn’t refer to anything but itself.
