AT 17 CM
(Solo) Germany, 2013 · 35 minutes · Direction: Jorge Puerta Armenta · Dance: Pau Aran Gimeno · Light Design: Marco Wehrspann
It was a long and intermittent process born of the need to understand the loss of someone close. I didn’t want to take that trip alone and asked Jorge for his support and guidance.
Among the chaos, dilemmas, and frustration, there was friendship, relief and fight. The search and the respect were our engines.
For me, this performance is a change of skin. Talk about what one is. Bring the past to the present time. Let go and cry. Scream. Bottoming to revive and assimilate what happened. I enter in my ghosts and I feel the danger. Death and absence are there. And I give myself to them to start over. From another place.

Over the last five years, Brighton-based choreographer and designer, Theo Clinkard, has built a reputation for creating affecting and visually arresting work. A new work for his company conceived in two parts.
Part one takes the audience on stage in small groups for an intimate encounter with Clinkard’s exceptional company of twelve international dancers. Visible within a maze of constantly moving screens, tender exchanges between the performers help the audience to connect with the cast.
In Part two, Clinkard’s choreography takes to the full stage on a cinematic scale. Retaining vivid impressions of the first part, and with the familiarity of the individual dancers still in mind, the audience is back in the auditorium seats. Featuring striking lighting design, bold costumes and music performed live by James Keane, This Bright Field gradually builds in momentum to become a spectacle of visual and emotional power.

London, Madrid, Barcelona, 2018 · 60 mins · Performed by: Maite Jáuregui · Concept: Maite Jáuregui and Pau Aran Gimeno · Direction: Pau Aran Gimeno · Dramaturgy: Javier Pastor · Set design and Costumes: Ana Inés Jabares-Pita · Original music: Tom Sochas · Light design: Sergio Roca Saiz and Pau Aran Gimeno · Production: Núria Aguiló Sol
The project questions the nature of denial as a central element. The interaction between people, life, death and the places we inhabit.
Interest towards the way performance questions space and the encounter between two different languages, practices and realities (Maite and Pau), are also main focuses of this project, expanding opportunities and possibilities.
‘Una’ is a theatrical project co-directed by Maite Jáuregui and Pau Aran Gimeno.
We will join a woman in her imaginary world to discover the facts that have determined its current, less dreamlike reality.
