These creations question and revert the laws and rules of the world in which we live, they open up situations, they make bodies search for one another and think of themselves in common. In these creations, we find the essence of dissidence. Against the manipulation of words, images, and that which is spectacular, these works return us to the essential gestures: laughter and tears, conversation and silence, mourning and celebration, love and friendship
There is dissent in the way in which Mohamed El Khatib understands death, there is dissent in the bodies of Mithkal Alzghair that explain the history of the brutal war in Syria. There is dissent in the solo by Xavier Le Roy, because it teaches us to think from the body, with a different logic, with other rules
There is dissent in Israel Galván, who rebelled against tradition and now dances in a library; and there is dissent in Edurne Rubio, who, like so many Spanish creators, works from Brussels in the history of Spain through a unique, hallucinatory family experience
And there are the screams, the tears, the songs of an entire people, in Maria Arnal and in Mursego.
There is also dissent, resistance and subversion in the works of Deflorian, Tagliarini and Miguel Pereira; other artists who have already collaborated with each other in the past, and who now bring forward their arguments about creative freedom, the ability to imagine and dream, and the problems artists experience in southern Europe
