Back Àbac

Back Àbac is the title of the latest show by Àngels Margarit / cia. MUDANCES. A title that refers to the elements brought into play as the starting point of the piece: the infinite, numbers, the music of Bach. This show aims to work with dance and circus artists on the idea of infinity. To do so, it uses Bach’s music as a sound map and universe to weave a sensual, visual choreography inspired by mathematics, with bodies that move in an extraordinary way -or that make any movement seem extraordinary- in this dance score by Àngels Margarit.
