L_ENTES, nominated to DansaCat 2012 Awards

The Dansacat 2012 Awards (Premis Dansacat), are organized by the Association of Dance Professionals of Catalonia (APdC). Their goal is to give recognition and promote the work of  dance professionals in Catalonia.

La Mandarina de Newton provided scientific advice during the conceptualization and development of the piece L_ENTES by coreographers Iris Heitzinger and Natalia Jiménez. We are happy to know that it has been shortlisted and nominated for the third edition of the Dansacat Awards, in the “New Talents” category. It was selected because of the quality of the performance and for being a multidisciplinary creation. Also because it included science in the project as well as the fact that it used non-conventional spaces for performance.

Winners will be chosen by popular vote, that can be case at the association’s website, www.dansacat.org. The voting process started on November 28th and will end on December 16th.  Prizes will be awarded on December 20th, in the opening of the piece ‘Little me” by Lali Ayguadé.

The project L_ENTES is born

L_ENTES is an artistic project. It is a contemporary dance performance ideated and directed by Iris Heitzinger and Natalia Jiménez. La Mandarina de Newton S.L. works as a scientific advisor.

The project is based on the meeting of four different disciplines: dance and movement as a global language of the body, science and mathematics with an special approach to the concepts of classical mechanics, optics and relativistic physics, lighting as an art and sound.

Our main axis is our investigation on human perception. In the foreground of the meeting with the public, we put the body in motion.

In all processes of creation in performing arts the concepts of space, time, light, sound and movement are intrinsic. They usually serve as vehicles of expression. This time however, we have directed our focus towards these items consciously. They have become the main protagonists.

These four concepts are present not only in performing arts, but in our day to day. They help us to create our perception of the environment. We came out with the following questions: What do we perceive? How do we perceive? Where is the line between reality and illusion? What can cause reactions in the viewer when he/she is invited to explore the boundary between the natural and the artificial, nature and art?

We offer a new experience to the public. We draw the attention of the spectator to his or her current experience. We offer the possibility to perceive a known environment with a new look and we create a link between art and a community space, habitat.

It is often more artifice than nature around us. That is why we believe that the latest concept is less experienced. So we want to offer a new experience that extends the natural perception through art to the public.
