“ If you came to me with a face I have not seen, with a name I have never heard, I would still know you. Even if centuries separated us, I would still feel you.Somewhere between the sand and the stardust, through every collapse and creation, there is a pulse that echoes of you and I.
When we leave this world, we give up all our possessions and our memories. Love is the only thing we take with us. It is all we carry from one life to the next “.

- ....the dancers are crouched in a circle - one by one they arise like the petals of a flower opening at the first rays of the sun. They are mesmerised by the light. The dance language suggests a palette of emotions and in its use of space, the stuff of which dreams are made.Much is happening but each detail is perfectly worked out. It is a choreography which glows with intensity,the details lovingly polished like a fine gem, and which demonstrates a real choreographic power -.

Altea Nunez has established herself firmly on the list of European emerging young choreographers to watch.
Nunez didn’t spare her young dancers; pushing them to the max as they tackled her searingly organic movement. Her dance forms seem to emerge from somewhere deep within and extend beyond the physical norms. Nunez’ spatial inventiveness is exceptional; out of a sculptural mass of dancers, solos emerged and duets formed seamlessly.
This is a work which remains etched in the mind, long after the last notes faded.......
