Afectos closes the dance trilogy on “the vulnerable” by Kirenia Danza. In the context before, during and after the Covid-19 pandemic, through dance, the project examines phenomena relevant to contemporary Galician society: the latest Galician diaspora (E-migrantas, 2021), care and vulnerable or socially excluded collectives during the healthcare and economic crisis which arose from it (Primeiro a vida!, 2021) and now Afectos, which again considers the current moment of the fundamental rights, support and affection claimed by migrant and displaced people, forced to move by economic reasons, extreme weather, persecution, conflicts, or other reasons.

Kirenia Danza

Kirenia Danza is a Galician dance company founded in 2019 by Kirenia Martínez Acosta, choreographer, dancer and actor, who has also co-directed the company Entremáns since 2006. Any choreography by Kirenia Danza seeks freedom in images and gestures, so that they can introduce feelings and emotions which renonate in the bodies and corporeality of the performers. Her creative method can be summarised in the choreographicc significance of the impromptu and itinerance (improvisation, emergence), determining a unique choreographic language, dreamlike and poetic, where the performers define actions, words and thoughts, flowing towards the concept of the discourse in question.

At present she combines her own creations with commissions, cinematographic and literary collaborations, educational projects and European partnerships with international entities, including E-migrantas, the first part of the Vulnerables trilogy; Instante Gradual, selected in the first call for entries by Movilidad Europea I-Portunus; Vagaface, Brumalión e o Can de Pedra, based on an unpublished story by Uxío Novoneyra and first presented at the Aeroplio Theatre in Athens; Otero, la bailarina española, a choreographic research project and winner of the first competition of SGAE’s Laboratorio Coreográfico; Tres tristes 2.0,and Primeiro a vida!, second part of the Vulnerables trilogy, first presented on 23 April 2021.
