FEDERICA PORELLO Festival IF Barcelona with Mercat: NOWHEN

Buy tickets


NOWHEN is the name of a character, immersed in the present, that reveals their multifaceted relationship with their real and imaginary environment. A space full of things, thoughts and actions, sounds and silence, light and darkness, where everything folds and unfolds, materially or metaphorically, kindly or violently. This show accentuates time for reflection and the search for a path, a subtle and empty line between gravity and lightness.

Dancer, teacher and creator Federica Porello has worked with artists such as choreographer Marlene Monteiro Freitas, visual artist Anne Kathrine Dolven, Tg Stan theatre company, AdonK! puppet theatre company, Le Théâtre de Nuit shadow theatre company and the dance company ACME/Albert Quesada. She is currently part of Mal Pelo and ZOO/Thomas Hauert companies and the live creation collective Group LaBolsa. Her work brings together dance, music and object theatre. She received the City of Barcelona Award in 2017 and in 2016 received the Critics Award for Best Dancer for her performance in Bach, a solo piece created by Maria Muñoz – Mal Pelo in 2004.
