The Secret of Jellyfish by Sabine Dahrendorf

Five dancers and one actor perform at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in a piece based on the quest for choreographic processes, which in turn researches into the possibility of engaging in a reading-in-movement of Perejaume’s poetical work, specifically of his book Pagèsiques.

Behind El Secret de les Meduses (The Secret of Jellyfish) lie choreographer Sabine Dahrendorf, co-founder with Alfonso Ordóñez of the legendary company Danat, and composer and plastic artist Josep Sanou.

Les Meduses was first performed in September 2014 at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, having been created specially for its unique spaces, and subsequently continued on an itinerary to the 2015 Sismògraf festival and to the 2015 Barcelona Grec festival, eventually opening the 2015/2016 season at the Laboratorio de las Artes in Valladolid. The particularities of each setting engendered a different adaptation of Les Meduses.
Now Les Meduses has returned to the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, where it will be performed on May 23, 24, 25 and 26 2016, having transformed all the experiences accumulated on the way into an entirely new version.
