For seven days, Estefanía Porqueras, this year's Artist in Residence, explores a possible tap dance-based movement language that can be read as a response to physical and emotional oppression of the individual in her first research on A-Cos.o. By using micro-cameras attached to the dancing body, whose images are to be projected live, she plans to expand the viewer's perspective.

Estefanía Porqueras is a tap dancer, choreographer, teacher and curator from Barcelona. With her work, she continuously promotes the artistic development of tap dance and advocates the networking of tap with other and new dance forms. She is the artistic director of the dance company UNUM Project. Porqueras dances as the protagonist of CAMUT BAND, one of the most renowned international tap dance groups, and is the curator of the tap dance program at the alternative theater Golem'S in Barcelona. Since 2012 she has been teaching regularly at the Escola Luthier, one of the leading centers for tap dance in Barcelona.

There are currently barely any opportunities for tap dance artists to sketch out initial ideas and design possible structures for further work. With the Tap-Lab, we would like to contribute to the support and, therefore, to a strengthening and safeguarding of the future of current Tap Dance culture.

Afterwards there will be a talk on the small stage.

Duration: ca. 60 min. incl. talk
