The programme for the last Saturday of every month during the first quarter of the year is dedicated to dance. Art history and museums do not consist only of objects: indeed, dance and choreography have been an inseparable part of the most radical experiments in art. In the case of Minimalism, the importance of the relationship between the object, space and body led to it being considered a new theatrical genre, while artists like Charlotte Posenenske introduced choreographic elements into their work.

This is why Dance at the end of the month will open on the last Saturday of January with Carmelo Salazar performing in the galleries of the exhibition Charlotte Posenenske:Work in Progress. The choreographer and dancer from the Canary Islands has made an in-depth exploration of the limits of dance from various physical experiments in which the limits of the stage are extended. On this occasion, Salazar will enter into dialogue with Posenenske’s work, its variability and the social critique it presents.

In February, Senior Curator at Tate Modern Catherine Wood will open the session with a lecture on Posenenske’s work and its transitional character, comparing it with conductors and nodes that act as transition points from one state to another. The lecture will be followed by Invisible labor (Invisible Labour)by Paz Rojo, who for more than a decade has been questioning the power of the body, dance beyond the market, anonymity and the possibilities of cultural production outside the framework of the production of value.

To close the quarter, the Museum will participate in the Quinzena Metropolitana de la Dansa (Metropolitan Dance Fortnight) with Soliloquios (Soliloquy), a piece by Jon Maya, Cesc Gelabert and Andrés Marín.

Postponed until further notice

Dance at the end of the month closes with the participation of the Museum in the Quinzena Metropolitana de la Dansa (Metropolitan Dance Fortnight) with Soliloquios (Soliloquy), a piece by Jon MayaCesc Gelabert and Andrés Marín. Three dancers are located in three of the museum galleries while the public is free to circulate among them. Three personal trajectories and three views on art converge in the same space and time, punctuated by the sound installation of Luis Miguel Cobo, which proposes a constant and simultaneous acoustic contamination.
