loscorderos IN RESiDENCE at the School Milà i Fontanals

https://loscorderos.wordpress.com/

David Climent and Pablo Molinero (Castellón, 1977) met for the first time in 1994 at the Theatre Classroom of Jaume I University in Castellón. In 2003, they launched the project loscorderos.sc, “the lambs”, a flock in which to develop a theatre language not based on words, but on the relationship between text and physicality. This language is increasingly attracting new audiences, especially amongst young spectators, due to its power and proximity.

In 2003, they presented their first show, Crónica de José Agarrotado, which received the Sebastià Gasch “Applause” Award in 2006; later came Shakespeare Meeting-point (2005), El hombre visible (2006), Tocamos a dos balas por cabeza (2007), A la intempèrie (2008), El mal menor (2010), which won the Unnim Prize for best stage production in 2011, El cel dels tristos (2011), Best Show at III Cenit (a festival for new theatre researchers), Seville 2011, and Sebastià Gasch FAD Prize, Barcelona 2013. Besides their work as creative artists, directors and performers, they have also cooperated artistically in a number of projects: recently with the Sudanese director Justin John Billy, along with students from the Music&Drama College of the University of Khartoum and with Pep Ramis (Mal Pelo) and the actor Eduard Fernández in a production of Caín&Caín. As teachers, they have presented regular workshops for many years now.

Their shows have been coproduced, amongst others, by the VEO Festival of Valencia, Mercat de les Flors, the TNT/Performing Arts Centre Festival in Terrassa and the Temporada Alta Festival in Girona. In 2013, they were selected as Modul-dance artists 2013-2014, a multi-annual cooperation project financed by the European Commission through its Culture Programme, launched at the TNT Festival in October 2013, with art residencies in Poland, Italy, Portugal and Germany and presentations throughout Europe in 2014.

Biography written in 2013

School Milà i Fontanals

insmilabcn.cat

The Institut Milà i Fontanals (Raval, Ciutat Vella) began as the Institut Escola Pi i Margall, founded in 1933 during the Second Republic. In the 1961-1962 academic year, it moved to its current home, a building newly designed specifically as a secondary school. The Institut Milà i Fontanals provides an education to culturally very diverse pupils (from more than 80 different countries) with very different levels of learning and from very different social and financial backgrounds. The school has designed strategies to address this diversity by using the centre’s resources (small groups, reception classes, streaming, remedial lessons, etc.) and by creating links with its surroundings.
