Capricis is a project initiated in 2013 at the Grec Festival in Barcelona. The choreography takes the score of Niccolò Paganini’s 24 Caprices as its script. Twelve dancers interpret the music, rewriting it with their movements on the stage, and beyond the virtuosity of the musical composition, the organisation of the series of the 24 studies results in a unique show, modular and flexible, which converts each performance into a caprice.

Àngels Margarit belongs to the first generation of contemporary dancers that emerged in the late 1970s in Barcelona. She completed her studies at different centres around Europe and also in New York. In 1985 she created Mudances, the piece that also gives its name to her company. With her first shows, Mudances (1985) and Kolbebasar (1988), she hit the international scene, where she has regularly presented her work since then. Her latest pieces are Retrospectiva 25 anys, a 25-year retrospective of the company (2010), From B to B (2011), in collaboration with Thomas Hauert, and Capricis (2013). She has received numerous awards including the Grand Prix du Concours Chorégraphique Bagnolet for Kolbebasar (France, 1988), the National Dance Prize of Catalonia (1986, 1991, 1999) and the City of Barcelona Award for the Performing Arts (1993). In 2010 she won the National Dance Prize awarded by the Ministry of Culture.
