MARTA IZQUIERDO [lodudo] PRODUCCIÓN

IMAGO-GO

PREMIERE IN SPAIN

I was born in Madrid in 1972. I studied Psychologyand Dance in Madrid, where I had my first professional experiences, alternating dance in discos, on Spanish Television and in contemporary dance companies. From2001 to 2007 I worked in France in the Rennes and Brittany National Choreography Centre under the direction of Catherine Diverrès, and François Verret.
I have been directing my own projects since 2007 as the company ‘[lodudo] producción’. My last two artistic projects had something in common: a rudimentary and archaic object, the stick: ‘Practice Makes Perfect’ (2017) based on traditional Catalan and Provençal dances and ‘IMAGO-GO’ (2018) about a majorette. ‘IMAGO-GO’ is also the first of three pieces based on marginal feminine communities. ‘GUÉRILLÈRES’ (creation 2021) will be the second piece and ‘ROLL’ (creation 2022) about sport on wheels, the last.
I see my teaching activities as an extension of my creative work. For the last ten years or so I have been giving workshops for professional ballet dancers (Extensions) in art schools (ESA Quimper, ESAD Reims), faculties of art and performance (University of Rennes 2 and Lyon 2), for school children (from primary schools and institutes) or non-professional students, like at the Louvre Museum and at the Rencontres Chorégraphiques de Seine et St Denis, the CHU in Toulouse and the Centre de Développement chorégraphique of Toulouse. I have been associated artist for Manège de Reims SN in 2018/19 and I am associated artist for l’Animal a l’Esquena (Celrà-Gerona) until 2021.

‘IMAGO-GO’ is a piece about the ‘majorette’ who portrays herself through her image (clothes, stick, verticality) and her body language (‘high-stepping’, ‘twirling’, ‘parade’, alignment, geometric shapes, rules, unisons). Her language is put into the body of her performers and developed as it comes into contact with their subjectivity. The ‘majorette’ is displaced and expresses herself that way in choreographic codes: those of ballet, contemporary dance, performance and urban dances practised by the Afro-American communities and the queer community. In this way we have written, with the ballet dancers, a homage to the strength and grace of this popular icon, a type of naive and bastard fiction for a night of revenge.
