We propose to highlight the process of the pre-creation period/research that is used in order to set up the creation methodology, to design the embodiment of concepts such as law of physics into physical tasks that leads us to specific movement leitmotifs. These leitmotifs become our movement generators to create a set of material that involve patterns of variations and repetitions which we will use to compose in each of the chosen contexts that the participants /artists would research, suggest and develop.
GN | MC is an ensemble that involves the artistic works of the two choreographers and dancers, Guy Nader and Maria Campos. Based in Barcelona, the Lebanese and Spanish artists collaborate together since 2006 and have been creating several works shown internationally in different festivals and venues.
GN | MC have been developing their own artistic language through movement and constantly redefining themselves while searching for new contexts and territories for dance. Their artistic work continues to pass over a wide range of progression.
“Our approach to dance reconfigures from one project to another, with every work achievement it becomes a learning process where we discover new places to explore, that later on lay out into a specific language and contour.”
Guy Nader and Maria Campos have a common ground in their individual approach to dance, where both look for a high demanding physicality aiming to push the body into its limits. Seeking for strength and delicacy of their own bodies, they allow a whole spectrum of imaginary to rise, discovering and providing an endless body landscape. Together they have drawn a common interest in the partnering work where they experiment new ways of approaching the relation between two or more bodies, developing strategies and tasks in order to provide the body a distinct image and perception.
