MARISA CABAL & STAV YEINIPRINT THIS PAGE
Marisa Cabal, born in Barcelona/Spain in 1984, followed classical and contemporary dance in the Theatre Institute of Barcelona. During her studies at P.A.R.T.S. she developed a series of dance solos based on the mixture of flamenco and contemporary dance. In her last year, she made the piece keeping busy keeping still in collaboration with Tuur Marinus and Fabian Barba, which was later developed into the quintet Dominos and Butterflies with Franziska Aigner and Gabriel Schenker. In November 2010 STUDIUM, a trio with next to herself Fabián Barba and Tuur Marinus, premièred at the Beursschouwburg in Brussels.
Born in Berlin raised in Israel and currently living in Brussels. Graduated from 'Thelma Yelin High school of the Arts' in 2004 (IL), where she was trained as a professional dancer and choreographer.
Since 2006 she had been studying at P.A.R.T.S. During her studies she had made the piece 'In circumstances' which took place in several dance and performance festivals in Belgium (Brussels, Antwerp), Holland (Utrecht) and France. (Paris)
Created a short film 'A man standing behind a seated woman' in collaboration with Veli Lehetovaara (FL), Mentor Thierry De May, which had been selected for the audience prize in Idill competition in Brussels and had been presented in film festivals in Helsinki, Tallin, Festival de Marseille, Rio and Sao Paulo.
Created the solo 'Mind the gap' which had been shown in Brussels, Antwerp and Frankfurt.
Since her graduation from P.A.R.T.S in June 2010 she have been collaborating with the collective 'Busy Rocks' in 'Studium' and in a performance in Art Basel.
Busy Rocks is a contemporary dance collective, formed in 2008 by five P.A.R.T.S. graduates: Franziska Aigner (AT), Fabián Barba (ECU), Marisa Cabal (ES), Tuur Marinus (BE) and Gabriel Schenker (BR). Busy Rocks was founded on artistic affinities and a desire to keep up and deepen the productive interactions that were built throughout the four years spent together at P.A.R.T.S. The collective creates several projects a year, in several constellations.
Busy Rocks is fascinated by the way movements are produced and perceived. They challenge the common perception of the dancer as a virtuous self-propelling body, moving freely through empty, resistance-less space. The Busy Rocks collective functions as an inspirational environment and a platform for a constant and consistent work sharing.
Busy Rocks created the projects Dominos and Butterflies (2009), A Mary Wigman Dance Evening (Fabián Barba, 2009), Studium (Tuur Marinus, 2010), Fields (Franziska Aigner, 2011), A personal yet collective history (Fabián Barba, 2011), As It Fell (Marisa Cabal, Stav Yeini, 2012), Still Animals (Tuur Marinus, 2012). From 2010 to 2012 Busy Rocks is artist-in-residence at Beursschouwburg (Brussels, BE).
