Fil d’Arena dansa-teatre opts for shaking the passivity of our occidental society. Salt is a multidisciplinary proposal, which varies between the boundaries of the theatre, the dance, the performance and the circus, where the extreme physical language of the performers and the images that are generated invites to reflect about the women role in the travel of the migration.
Salt is the second part of the trilogy Sal, work that talks about migration from different perspectives. The first one was La sal que ens ha partit , piece that talked about the migration crisis, in a global level and timeless. Meanwhile Salt refines the gaze making a direct reference to the refugees’ crisis in Europe and the role of the women in this process.
Fil d’Arena dansa-teatre was born in 2011, as a place where bring to life the concerns that we think as a collective.
We use the surname of danza teatro (dance theatre) because we are on the borders of both, although it is true that we are interested in every scenic practice as the music and the circus.
Our language is the movement and our tool is the body.
