Gripping, physically intense and genuinely lyrical, this award-winning extended evening-length duet Ã–lelÃ©s for two men marks the first collaboration between acclaimed CatalÃ¡n choreographers and performers Jordi CortÃ©s and DamiÃ¡n MuÃ±oz â€“ two of Spain’s most innovative young dance artists. Based on writer SÃ¡ndor MÃ¡rai’s 1942 masterpiece Embers, this high-velocity, nearly violent piece dramatizes the bitter reunion of two long-estranged friends, who look back to the fateful betrayal that shattered their bond 40 years earlier. Ã–lelÃ©s has received the Ciudad de Barcelona Award and the Premio de la Feria Internacional de Huesca.
CortÃ©s has performed with DV8 Physical Theatre in London, among others and MuÃ±oz, who formed his own company in 1995 and is dubbed the AlmodÃ³var of dance in Spain. This simmering physical theatre work is guaranteed to draw the audience through an intense and furious male bonding.
