THE DANCER PEP RAMIS PRESENTS HIS NEW WORK ALONE AT THE CONGRESS CENTER
The work ‘The mountain, the truth & the paradise’ arrives this month on the island of Ibiza. This is the first production of this year within the Platea program, dedicated to dance. The performance, which will be performed at the Congress Center on Sunday, November 22 at 8:00 p.m., is a production by the Catalan company Mal Pelo, which offers a solo performance by the co-director of the training and renowned dancer Pep Ramis. The artist has turned this work into a very personal fiction in which he reflects his career as a dancer and scenic creator.
‘The mountain, the truth & the paradise’ is a contemporary dance show, with an expected duration of 60 minutes and with a text in Catalan, although, according to Ramis himself, “it is an argument that anyone who has been living on the island for a few months, even if they do not speak Catalan well, will be able to understand perfectly”.
Working alone at the age of fifty means for Pep Ramis to relearn the accumulated tools of the stage creator’s trade. “It is a challenge that I have wanted to face to evaluate my abilities as a performer, my stage interests after more than thirty years of working with Mal Pelo,” he explains.
AN INTERDISCIPLINARY SHOW
‘The Mountain, the Truth & the Paradise’ is “a new turning point. A particular look, with humor, on the human species and its drifts ”, sums up the company itself. The interpreter assures that the work “is aimed at all audiences, but especially those who like the interdisciplinary scene. The work is structured around a personal, contemporary dance, but I also use text, singing and even drawing on stage. I use the tools that make me up as a person and as a creator ”.
The dancer and producer encourage all Ibizan lovers of dance and the performing arts to join him on November 22. On the current panorama that the world of culture and leisure is experiencing as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, Ramis expresses that “culture is a necessary good, of enormous value to be able to take care of ourselves, question ourselves and grow as a society. In times like the present it is more necessary than ever”, he concludes.
The performance is part of the Platea program for the Circulation of Performing Arts Shows, which is developed by the National Institute of Performing Arts and Music of the Ministry of Culture together with the City Council and has the collaboration of the FEMP.
