The professional dance company Cia.Vols returns to the Reus scene this weekend, when it will exhibit its show 100 tempos at the Santa Llúcia Hall in the capital of Baix Camp. To the rhythm of life. After a year performing on different stages of the country and producing different scenic proposals, Cia.Vols exhibits her new show at home again, which encompasses the most emerging dance registers of the moment.
The new production has been in the works for a year and it chronicles the journey over the last century. It reflects, through the story of six characters, the evolution of dance, music, freedoms and interpersonal relationships in society at all times.
The essence of Cia.Vols is its ability to merge different styles of dance and performing arts in the same environment. 100 tempos. Al ritme de la vida adapts each historical moment to the most emblematic and emerging dance styles of each moment, with choreographies that mix styles such as jazz, tap dance, lindy opo, body percussion, commercial dance and urban dance. The show is even clothed in acrobatics and theater. The idea was born from the dancers and choreographers from Reus Violeta Pena and Jordina Sans, creators of the show and directors of the company.
The two will be able to show their talent on a stage in Reus, something they always consider special, since the beginnings of their training are in the capital of Baix Camp. Now they walk between their city and Barcelona, immersed in different creative projects.
100 tempos. Al ritme de la vida is a work directed and suitable for all types of audiences and has been designed so that all generations can enjoy it without prejudice.
The show also has an indisputable element of identity, since it is made up of a cast of dancers from Camp de Tarragona. All of them professionals and with extensive experience on stage.
Among them are the same directors of the company Violeta Pena and Jordina Sans, along with names such as Héctor López, David Albiol, Raquel Rodríguez and Vasili Vornicoglo. In addition, the production has the special collaboration of Reus actress Irene Benavent and acrobat Sebastián Jimenez.
Year and a half of existence
Despite still being a young project, Cia.Vols already has an important journey, since its two creators are dedicated to the world of professional dance. The proposal became real in January 2021 and continues its course in good health, despite the difficult times that culture has experienced due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The new production should serve to consolidate this firm path that the company has traced, which shows a special enthusiasm for once again exhibiting its talent at home, in a stage as emblematic for the people of Reus as the Sala Santa Llúcia.
