Performing arts summer programme in the attic
This summer, Thursdays on the Attic are going to be devoted to enjoying performing arts. From 7 July to 8 September (+ 11 September), each Thursday there’ll be a chance to get to know and participate in the different projects of performing arts, performance pieces and stageable projects.
Altogether, there’ll be eleven offerings by Javier Vaquero, Cris Blanco, Amaia Urra, Lorena Álvarez, Quim Pujol, Idoia Zabaleta & Ibon Salvador & Mónica Real, Bárbara Sánchez & Jaime Conde-Salazar, Óscar Bueno & Itxaso Corral, Itsaso Iribarren & Germán de la Riva, Nilo Gallego & Pelayo Arrizabalaga and Isaak Erdoiza.
It’ll be the summer so it will probably be hot, but not too hot. We'll head up to the rooftop on the fourth floor, by stairs or in the lift. There'll be people we know and others we don't. Things will kick off at half past eight in the evening, when the sun is just about to set and it’s starting to get a bit cooler. We'll arrive by day and leave by night. And there will be one or more people doing things, singing, dancing, talking, playing an instrument, telling us things, changing, moving… We'll sit down and enjoy ourselves for a while on the roof watching and listening to things that don't usually happen on a roof.
Pelayo and Nilo will review John Coltrane's song Giant Steps. With the aid of their less-than-divine bodies, two pick-ups, a sax tenor and electronic instruments they will travel the fourth floor of the Tabakalera building.
I start from one point and go as far as possible.
We play the music, not the structure. Or was it the other way round?
