Porta 54

La Porta gives carte blanche to three of the artists with more potential of the emerging scene of Barcelona helping them in the production of a new work.

In recent years there has been an evident generational gap in our city, a worrying lack of young creators with new proposals in the field of dance. Collaborations like the  1ª Mostra de Peces curtes tanning or the project IN with La Poderosa are attempts to address the problem, open spaces that can promote the emergent creation. Precisely because of these settings, and the one presented by the Professional Association on the occasion of the International Dance Day, we can discover and monitor the evolution of three young choreographers that we find particularly interesting Elena Albert, María Jesús Fajardo and Mireya-Beryl Segalés.

By then I had no support structure for my art ... there was no chance to talk about my work ... the things I was doing made ​​no sense, so I let them go. That left me alone in the studio, and raised the fundamental question: what makes an artist when left alone in the studio? My conclusion was that if I was an artist and I was in the studio, then whatever I was doing in the studio should be art ... From this point art became more of an activity and less of a product.
