QABALUM | Diego Pazó and Lucía Burguete started dancing through different backgrounds -breakdance and rythmics gymnastics, respectively- before ariving to conemproary dance. They meet studying in La Faktoría Choreographic Center in 2019 -where they learn form masters such as Laura Aris, Marta Coronado, German Jáuregi, Thomas Hauert, Mark Tompkins and Thi-Mai Nguyen, among others- and they start working together since then. They collaborate in short projects for other choreographers like Laida Aldaz, Isael Mata or Judith Sánchez while developing their individual careers as performers in other companies such as Daniel Abreu, Antonio Ruz, Jesús Rubio, Led Silhouette, Vicky P. Miranda or Proyecto Larrua. In 2020 they establish their own collective Qabalum and start their own personal work, creating and performing in Spain while teaching and doing projects to approach citizenship to contemporary dance.
LITTLE STRATEGIES AGAINST HUMAN PHYSICS is a workshop focused on bringing the body closer partnering and floorwork through different tools and practices where imagination, intuition and technical execution come together. Through an energetic journey we will seek to facilitate the malleability of the body both physical and technical, as well as emotional and performative so that communication becomes more fluid while we dance both with other bodies and ours. We propose a challenging environment in which to train attention, commitment to the ideas that are launched into space and development of intelligence and emotionality of the body. In short, a place to find little strategies that allow us to build our dances.
