Salva Sanchis: Radical Light

Turunlinnantie 1, 00900 Helsinki

For Radical Light, choreographer Salva Sanchis enters into dialogue with the music of Senjan Jansen and Joris Vermeiren. Under the name Discodesafinado, these two sound designers fuse minimal techno with experimental electronics, creating a wonderful pointillist palette of microsounds, both rhythmic and contemplative, incomprehensible and infectious.

Radical Light is a choreography built entirely around the musical concept of ‘pulse’. It is a straightforward dance, multilayered and unadulterated. In Radical Light dance and music flirt with each other while revolving around a common pulse. One hour of uncompromising sound and movement at 120 beats per minute.

Salva Sanchis was born in Manresa, a town near Barcelona. He followed theatre studies at the Institut del Teatre de Barcelona, specializing on body theatre, mime technique, sword fighting, acrobatics and Aikido. In 1995 he moved to Belgium to study at P.A.R.T.S., where he graduated among the first generation of students of the school.

He has created several own performances as well as worked as a guest choreographer for the Rosas company. Since 2009 Salva Sanchis is together with choreographer Marc Vanrunxt artistic leader of Kunst/Werk.
