03/17 talk after the show with Clàudia Brufau

The Teatre Lliure is once again taking part in Dansa Metropolitana, the metropolitan festival which focuses how dance is disseminated in its full range of expressions and languages. It is an urban network of cultural complicities that the Lliure believes as one of its main objectives. This season's shows are Amber, Toná and PLI.


This precious piece of Andalusian folklore inquires into fleetingness, death and memory, because dancing death is the best way of celebrating life, an individual and collective catharsis.

Toná springs from the need to embody a broad identity which does not seek to be defined essentially and is organically tied to the collective memory and popular imaginaries, in all their turmoil. It is a poetry that conveys the flesh, the living pulse, full of anger and joy and of prejudices and superstitions. An ancient, fertile pain that slowly builds us up from childhood.

Luz Arcas founded the company La Phármaco in 2009. Her creations include Kaspar Hauser. El huérfano de Europa, Miserere and the new project Bekristen/Cristianos, a trilogy whose second chapter, Somos la Guerra (We Are War), premiered in autumn 2021. Her repertory theatre has toured through many countries, along with educational projects for all audiences, which have won them the 2015 El Ojo Crítico de Danza prize for best female dance performer in the 2015 Lorca awards, the 2009 Injuve award and the 2009 Málaga Crea award, plus they were the finalists in the category of best female dance performer in the 2017 Max awards.
