A residency with Spain's Iker Karrera. Our collaborators at the Spanish Consulate were so pleased with the 2021 Elías Aguirre collaboration and INSECTOS film, that they reached out to partner with LACDC again. SPAIN DANCES is a program that fosters and supports the presence of Spanish contemporary dance in the United States and the collaborations between US dance companies and Spanish choreographers are meant to create new work and exchange practices. Last year was the first time they partnered with a dance company on the West Coast.
In October, the consulate will fly out Iker Karrera, a Spanish choreographer selected by LACDC's artistic director Jamila Glass, to work with the company in a 6-day residency that will culminate in a live performance November 4-6 at Stomping Ground L.A. An internationally awarded artist, Karerra runs the Iker Karrera Dance Company and is the founder and director his own school, Danza180º.
