Each body has its own language, unique and perfect.
Our working tool must be continuously powerful and sensitive. With this in mind, we will work through play and pleasure, with exercises based on technique, composition, improvisation and body narrative.
We will open the space to dialogue with ourselves and the others.
We will connect with an authentic personal expression and we will improve the quality of movement.
We will achieve an increase in the awareness of our limits, which will allow us to overcome them. The result of our work will help us have an open and autonomous mind, capable of adapting to a creative process.
Pau was born in Barcelona, Spain, in 1981. He began his professional path to dance through ballroom dancing where he reached international competition level in ten different styles. This led him to study dance in Barcelona, and at the Royal Conservatory in Madrid where his interested began with the classical ballet form and developed towards an interest in contemporary dance and contact improvisation. Following his studies he continued to explore the form of dance in France and Germany before becoming a permanent performing member of Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch in 2005.In addition to performing with Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, Pau currently teaches, conducts workshops, and participates in various artistic projects in Germany and abroad. His goal is to further develop his own movement language which he has been nurturing the last years in Germany, and to continue to reflect upon the ideas, inspirations, and influences from his colleagues, artists, and the masters that cross his path.
'I offer a space for the creative process to take place,
for contact with oneself, sensitivity and expression,
without pretentions or judgements,
where everything is possible.'
