Founded in 2014, the company has seven shows in its repertoire and a notable international tour and awards. Their particular way of understanding the art of movement has led them to make several important collaborations, including Cirque du Soleil and Catalan public television. In 2020, they launched their Lab Project pedagogical offer, training related artists in the arts of movement in both its Online and In-Person versions. Each body has stories to tell, and Los Escultores del Aire offers a space for meeting and exchange that lives and breathes between the performer and the spectator. www.escultoresdelaire.com
Danza Abend is an independent dance company that was founded in 1983. It is the independent dance group with the most years of activity in Costa Rica. Danza Abend is a concept of its founder and creator, Cristina Gigirey, who was a fundamental pillar of dance in Costa Rica, both as a teacher and as a choreographer and dancer. Gigirey was the group’s director until 2006 when she died. Since then, her daughter, Gabriela Dörries, has assumed the company’s director role. The dance company maintains its own style of work in its stagings, which have come to obtain recognition nationally and internationally. It won several awards, such as the Award for Best Choreography of the National Theater of Costa Rica. Danza Abend remains constantly creative, bringing current topics to the stage and supporting the choreographic creation of new creative talents.
