Miquel Barcelona surprises us with this wonderful group piece that takes a poetic look at death, using the figures of the crow and the corpse as aesthetic references. The piece is inspired by various popular celebrations, folkloric songs and burial rites. The composition cleverly integrates these materials and creates a common voice out of the dance of five fabulous performers that, sometimes in mourning and sometimes in celebration, propel the sense of collective feeling forward, all the while confronting the mystery. In [Kórps], individuals are not highlighted (although each performer has brilliant moments), but rather the group is underscored as a synthesis of society. The choreography consists of the study of how to move bodies through space with the same impulse and in the same direction. The mise en scène is sober, elegant and fair. The scenes evolve organically while the choreography incites possible narratives about the sacred.
