From 8 to 10 March

Fascinated by the migration of birds, we want to learn to fly. Lowland returns us to the animality of the body and movement, to learning, effort, tenacity and endurance, to beauty, the spirit of excellence and the spirit of freedom. To leave or to put down roots? Lowland is each individual’s landscape and the journey. We can only fly with our bodies and we will need ingenuity and imagination to find the wings. An imaginary world of birds and men, full of light and vitality in Lowland, the low ground.


Roser López Espinosa graduated in contemporary dance in the MTD – Theaterschool / Higher School of Arts in Amsterdam (Holland). In 2005 she won a Vienna danceWEB scholarship and trained with former Olympic gymnastics coach Jaume Miró. She has danced in Holland with Katie Duck’s Magpie Music Dance Company (as an apprentice), Marta Reig Torres and Pere Faura. In Barcelona she has worked in particular with Àngels Margarit / Cia Mudances (Corol·la, Kolbebasar, Flexelf), and also with Cesc Gelabert and Isaki Lacuesta, Iago Pericot (Mozartnu) and Las Malqueridas, among others. Since 2006 she has created her own pieces (The lizard’s skin, Còncau II, Miniature, Before we fall), which have won international recognition with awards at Masdanza and at the Burgos-NY and Madrid choreography competitions. They have been performed in Europe, Egypt, Canada and Japan. In 2011 the dance review Susy-Q ranked her amongst the most promising young choreographers on the Spanish scene.
