Morau, Marcos

Marcos Morau studied choreography at the Institut del Teatre de Barcelona, the Conservatorio Superior de Danza de Valencia and at Movement Research in New York, obtaining the highest score on his final project and an award from the Institut del Teatre. He was an assistant for Nederlands Dans Theater II as well as for the company IT Dansa directed by Catherine Allard. He also studies photography and drama, working toward a Masters in Theory of Drama.

In 2005 he created La Veronal, a company formed by artists in dance, film, photography and literature. They are constantly searching for new means of expression, for cultural references in cinema, literature, music and photography, creating a strong narrative language toward the formation of global art spaces. La Veronal is creating a series of works in which the starting point is a country or city, creating a link between dance and geography. The pieces are not meant to be documentaries describing the country directly, but instead use certain elements in its name to develop an idea, an argument. This imagery characterizes the unique voice of the company.

Marcos Morau was awarded the National Dance Award in 2013 from the Spanish Ministry of Culture, as well as the Sebastià Gasch Award, an important prize granted by the FAD Foundation of Arts and Design. He has also won awards at the International Choreography Competition Hannover, the Choreography Contest in Copenhagen, the Madrid Choreographic Competition, Masdanza / the International Dance Festival of the Canary Islands, Best show in Fira Tarrega for Los Pájaros Muertos, and the “Butaca” Award, the audience prize given to the Best Dance Performance in 2013 for Siena.

Marcos Morau and his team have also begun working with other international companies ; during the upcoming seasons they will create new pieces for the National Dance Company of Spain directed by José Martínez, the Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, Skånes Dansteater and Norrdans in Sweden, the Ballet Teatres of the Generalitat Valenciana and the Royal Danish Theatre among

He first experimented with the creation of installations and cinematic objects.

From 2001 to 2011, he was in charge of Ginger & Fred video Bar’s programming at La Maison de la Danse in Lyon. He discovered the choreographic field and the importance of this medium in the dissemination, mediation and pedagogical approach to dance alongside Charles Picq, who was a brilliant video director and the director of the video department at that time.

Today, Fabien Plasson is the video director at La Maison de la Danse and in charge of the video section of Numeridanse.tv, an online international  video library, and continues his creative activities, making videos of concerts, performances and also creating video sets for live performances.

La Veronal

In 2005 Marcos Morau created La Veronal, company  formed by artists from the dance, film, photography and literature. The  artistic team purpose lies directly on a constant search for new  expressive media, for cultural references – cinema, literature, music  and photography, mostly – to bet on a strong narrative language with the  intention of forming global art spaces.

La  Veronal’s works frequently take as starting point a country or city in  the world, creating an analogy between dance and geography. The pieces  do not intend to become as documentary films that describe the country  directly, but makes use of the elements that the name provides to carry  out the development of an idea, an argument. This imagery has led the  company to differentiate itself on the map of international contemporary  creation as an own voice.
