ISLANDSPRINT THIS PAGE
Salva Sanchis is a Brussels based choreographer. After graduating among the first generation of students of P.A.R.T.S. he developed a career both as performer and as choreographer. His series Islands consists of a collection of small dance pieces that will be presented both individually and in different combinations. There are solos, duets and trios ranging from 1 to 12 minutes long each. Each piece is the result from a different research topic and has its own separate identity. Individually they allow the choreographer to develop interesting material outside the demanding framework of an evening performance. Together they form a diverse but specific choreographic landscape. The audience will have the opportunity of witnessing dances that don’t unfold into a bigger story, that don’t relate to a hidden master structure. Instead, each Island exists on its own, and because of that each Island doesn’t refer to anything but itself.
