< The choreographer Jordi Cortés presents a work that incorporates dancers of all diversity. They are the protagonists of a dance theatre proposal that is unconventional regarding the relationship we have with our bodies and the fear to show ourselves as we are. >

"Be strong!" ... This is the meaning of "kiakaha", a Maori expression Jordi Cortés used to name an association with. For more than ten years, he has worked in the field of physical theater and dance, and especially in integrated dance. This association was founded precisely as a performative project in which different characters share experiences through words and body language.

Each of these performers has a peculiar relationship with their body and the surrounding environment, so that each has its genuine particularity. Through eroticism, sensuality, fetishism of objects and the eyes of others they will share their experiences. The audience will witness and be an accomplice to their confessions and the attempts of these performers to free their bodies through the language of dance.

"... As you can fight and enjoy from and with the body, to achieve visibility"

'Fuck-in-Progress' has been awarded the XVIII Critics Award for Best Choreography 2015
