the body keeps it honest

Performance project will be the result of the meeting between Pau and the participants of the annual edition of the festival. Some of the key words which we will work on will allow us to collect materials for the subsequent group composition. It is an invitation to collective creation in dialogue with movement, theatricality, and the space that frames this experience: Berlin.

Pau Aran (Barcelona, 1981) is a Dance Artist, now living and working in Germany. He came to dance at the age of 11 and, soon after, studied all styles: Latin American, Standard, Jazz, Modern, and Classical Ballet. He completed his studies at the Conservatorio Profesional de Danza Mariemma in Madrid, and later at the Folkwang Hochschule der Künste in Essen, before joining the ensemble of the Tanztheater Wuppertal, Pina Bausch, in 2005 until 2020, as a permanent member, and later as a guest. Since 2013, and in parallel to his career as a dancer, Pau has been creating his own pieces and presenting his work in Germany, France, Italy, Chile, Spain, and Japan. In 2020 he began his collaboration with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, which continues to this day. Pau has also danced for other choreographers such as Theo Clinkard, Alan Lucien Øyen, Antonio Ruz, Stefan Jovanović, and Jorge Puerta Armenta. His current motivation is to continue developing the expression of his art through body language, focusing on the creation and pedagogy of contemporary dance. The search for beauty, movement, and his interest in the poetics of contemporary dance theatre are represented in his projects. With a commitment to share previously gained knowledge and experiences to the next generation of artists, Pau simultaneously encourages self-discovery in his students and collaborators. Combining the passage of time and transient nature of dance, fusing heritage and tradition, with the future.
