The human being in its primitive and contemporary forms

First prize in the Urban FACYL International Competition

First prize in the young creators in Madrid Competition

In the award-winning Indala three dancers combine dance, physical theater and circus to construct a piece that, by manipulating metal tubes and Cyr wheels, unearths the primitive and contemporary human being.


Indala contains in his imagination a part of the prehistoric cultural heritage of Iberian Peninsula. The Indala symbol found in Los Letreros Cave (Almería) comes to life in this piece, encompassing Paleolithic art-inspired variations found in prehistoric cave paintings all around the world.


Indala proposes an onstage journey in which the human being is unearthed in their primitive and contemporary forms, the influence of rites in the transmission of social images and how these constitute an instinctive defense of one’s own self against the unilateral development of intelligence and its antisocial impact.
