Entomo: 'Where insects and humans come together'

Entomo: 'Where insects and humans come together'

A duet where contemporary and urban dance mix their own technique to create an animal and insect movement.

Where insects and humans come together. Through a magnifying glass we observe two small creatures, and the microcosm that surrounds them. They may be humans; they may be insects. Territoriality, the conquest of spaces.

This 12-minute piece by the Spanish choreographic duet has won 1st prize at the Burgos-New York contest (Spain, 2010); 1st prize at the Ibero American Dance Contest Alicia Alonso (2010, Cuba) for the "maturity with which it was conceived […] by an original and daring duo that arouses many existential and philosophical implications in the audience." Entomo is also a recipient of Audience Prize and Superior Dance conservatory Proze at Madrid Contest (2009) and 3rd Prize at the Capturadanza dance-video contest (Madrid, 2010).
