‘Crazy land’ dance performance at Barcelona’s TNC

Over four days at the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya in Barcelona, the dance performance ‘Cuculand Souvenir‘ looks at the different ways that new technologies have impacted our lives.

The man behind this piece is Catalan choreographer Roberto Olivan and he uses it to address the question ‘Who will save us from ourselves?’

Divided into a series of short stories, the show is a reflection on the current chaotic moments and confusion that we face in many areas of daily life, as well as an investigation into the ways that new technologies have affected creative expression.

Olivan uses not only dance but also circus and visual arts in this work along with electroacoustic music from Belgian composer Laurent Delforge and stage lighting created by digital artist Romain Tardy.

Cuculand Souvenir
In this performance, seven dancers tell short stories about technology and modern life.

‘Cuculand Souvenir’ features seven performers and is produced by Roberto Olivan’s own company. The name comes from the concept of stories taking place in a ‘crazy land’ and which evoke memories, or souvenirs, or times past.

When: 22-25 November. Thu-Sat 8pm; Sun 6pm

Where: Teatre Nacional de Catalunya, Barcelona
