Contemporary Dance Company
Since 2012, the paths of Begoña Quiñones, Mar Rodríguez and Verónica Garzón have crossed in different creative processes. Begoña and Mar created “fETCH”, a duet of medium format that received several mentions, like the Prize of the Jury at the International Choreographic Contest of Contemporary Dance 18MASDANZA 2013 (Canary Islands, Spain). Veronica Garzón, in turn, had to develop a research on corporeal insightful landscapes of the body with an intimate solo, “Las tormentas no duran toda la noche” (storms does not last the whole night), before opening a new process towards collaboration with other choreographers. The 12-minute piece won the Best Contemporary Dance Choreography Award at the I Choreographic Contest District of Tetuan in 2014 (Madrid, Spain). Finally on that same year, all three choreographers embarked on a small-format choreographic project, “Prueba Trinity 1.0”, which has followed the support from cultural institutions and positive reception all over its showings in several Dance Festivals in non-conventional spaces.
The repertory of BQ-MR has continued to grow and define itself, giving as immediate result their first long format work, “TRIPTICO” (triptych), which gave light in February 2017 in the Festival ELLAS CREAN (Madrid), and which supposes a further stylistic and conceptual step in the company. Deeply interested in non-monolithic collaborative processes, “TRIPTICO“ proposes a new challenge respecting its short counterpart “Prueba Trinity 1.0”: to question the value of the choreographic collaboration and the conceptual frame of the moving body in a large format work.
During their path as a group, the three choreographers have questioned what are the elements which might get them closer, but also those which might separate them. In a research-based mode, previous dramaturgies based on the last works and backgrounds of the three choreographers are put into question, criticized and combined in a sort of “triptych“, with the aim to develop a line of choreographic thought which supports future creation process and allied collaborations where investigation and choreography of Contemporary Dance would intimately intermingle.
