The final play in Mal Pelo’s tetralogy on Bach’s music, a work about the passion and desire to find the inhospitable, wild and unattainable place that is Highlands, returns to Mercat de les Flors. A show in which dance and live music, provided by a string quartet and a vocal quartet, surround us and project us towards vertical poetics, between light and darkness. It premiered at the Mercat de les Flors in May 2021 with great success and we are bringing it back this season to make up for the capacity constraints due to the pandemic.

Formed in 1989 by María Muñoz and Pep Ramis, the Mal Pelo company bases its work on a constant search for languages. During their early years, they toured extensively (Europe, the United States, the Middle East, Canada, and South America). In 2001, Ramis and Muñoz promoted L’animal a esquena, a multidisciplinary creation and exchange centre in a farmhouse located in Celrà (Girona). Mal Pelo has received, amongst others, the National Dance Award (2002) awarded by the Generalitat de Catalunya, the National Dance Award (2009) awarded by the Ministry of Culture, the City of Barcelona Dance Award (2017) for Bach and the Critics Award (2018) for Bach and for Federica Porello’s performance.

Highlands has received two Dansacat 2022 awards from the Associació de Professionals de la Dansa de Catalunya (APdC) for Best Show and Best Sound Space. This November, Mal Pelo will receive the Gold Medal from the Performing Arts Academy.
