Production Details / Press Releases

DFORMADXS arises as a result of the question: do we really know our bodies or do we accept the identity we have/have been given?

We present a “dissident being” where she/he will experience throughout her/his journey and development a construction of herself/himself. Becoming aware of all the construction/manipulation that the hegemonic, patriarchal system exerts on her mind and body. A mutable and perfomatic matter that will (de)form and (de)construct itself anew.

Nisham is a hybrid urban dance company formed by different groups of performers, directed by Nia Torres, with its own scenic language at the disposal of the projects that the company undertakes. It has toured the Catalan and national territory, in various autonomous communities such as Vila – Real, Madrid, Pamplona and Benicarló. In Barcelona, it has performed in the following venues and festivals: L’altre Festival, Festival Hop, Teatre Tantarantana, Centro Cultural Les Corts, Centro Cívico la Barceloneta, R.A.I, Pla Roig, Hop Sant Andreu and Auditori de Sant Martí among others, in 2020 and currently. It receives support for the creation of centers such as the Sant Martí Civic Center – Auditori de St. Martí, Barceloneta Civic Center, Fabra i Coats Creation Factories, Hop Bcn platform, l’Estruch de Sabadell, La Unió Santcugatenca, among others. In 2022 they cross the pond to tour Ecuador, in several fairs in Latin America, in festivals such as A Cielo Abierto, supported by IBERESCENA.
