As everyone knows, a caprice is something whimsical, over the top or unpredictable.
The project Capricis (Caprices) is based on Paganini’s 24 Capricci, short pieces for violin that demand great technical virtuosity and suggest a vast array of different emotions.
Capricis is an entertainment with a strong element of playfulness. The dance takes the musical structure of the 24 Capricci as its script, reinterpreting and building on this with the idea of making it visible, sculpting it with bodies or drawing it in the space. Above and beyond the virtuosity of the music, the structure of the twenty-four studies offers a unique dramatic proposal in which the performers, each in their individual way, embody the piece.
Capricis, premiered at Grec 2013, is a modular, flexible piece that can be created or recreated for specific circumstances, turning each new performance into a caprice.
In the site-specific La Pedrera, which is represented on October 22 at 20 am, the piece plays with the architecture integrating the choreography to the reinterpretation of music, a proposal to modulat the various spaces of the building; a journey in which the audience will be finding the dancers.
