A Mary Wigman Dance Evening

Barba, Fabián

Fabián Barba was born in  Quito in 1982. Since age 12 he started studying modern dance in La casa  de la danza and later in the Frente de Danza Independiente as well as  theater in the school of the theater group Malayerba. This education in  his hometown allowed him to to work as a professional performer in that  artistic milieu. Parallel to his artistic formation, Fabián followed for  two years university studies in Communication and LIterature at the  Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Ecuador.

In 2004 he went to Brussels to study at  P.A.R.T.S. where he finished both the training and the research cycle  with the graduation work keeping busy keeping still (2008), which he  created conjointly with Tuur Marinus and Marisa Cabal.  After leaving  school he became a founding member of Busy Rocks, a collective based on  artistic affinities that functions as an inspirational platform for a  constant and durational work sharing. In the frame of Busy Rocks he has  participated in the creation of Dominos and Butterflies (2009), A Mary Wigman Dance Evening (2009), Studium (2010) and A personal yet collective history (2011).

Besides the work with Busy Rocks Fabián participated as a dancer in the creation of You’ve changed by Zoo/Thomas Hauert and will join in the creation of Danza Permanente by choreographer DD Dorvillier.

Wigman, Mary

German dancer and choreographer (Hanover 1886-Berlin 1973).

Despite being trained by Rudolf van Laban, she was not his follower.  Her ideas about dance free from music have found a broad audience in Germany, Switzerland, and America.  In one of the first, she used percussion instruments. She is known for creating The Language of Dance (1996).

Meeting with literature

Collaboration between a choreographer and a writer can lead to the emergence of a large number of combinations. If sometimes the choreographer creates his dance around the work of an author, the writer can also choose dance as the subject of his text.
