Marta Torrents

A show of rare, raw beauty, an unfiltered physical dialogue powered by pure emotion.

Two men, two women... Their bodies come together, generating an explosion of fragmentary stories. An emotional outpouring exploring the complexity of our sensations, conflicts and desires. Delicately poised between shared experiences and moments of solitude, laughter and despair, elation and abandonment...
Drawing on elements of theatre, dance and acrobatics, Marta Torrents upends ideas of technicality, accentuates the agility of the performers’ bodies and intensifies their fragility almost to breaking point, in the process teasing out a subtle palette of emotional hues and imbuing every detail of every gesture with new intensity, exploring the invisible cracks in our movements.
With Brut, Torrents champions an intuitive, spontaneous approach to creation, getting to the essence of what makes us tick, right here and right now. Stripped of all artifice, the bodies in motion become conduits for primitive emotion, where technique is every bit as important as narrative. Putting truth before virtuosity, an unpolished artistic vision, raw but achingly sensitive...
