Video resume about the artistic vision of the choreographer Roberto Olivan and his company ENCLAVE ARTS DEL MOVIMENT. This video shows extracts of works done in between 2001 and 2011.
Roberto Olivan is the Catalan choreographer and Director of ENCLAVE ARTS DEL MOVIMENT. He lives and works internationally binding together all those seemingly opposing influences from each country and culture he steps in, using a mix of artistic languages to create primeval, organic physical theatre full of wonderful contradictions. It is rooted firmly in his own origins and experience, and colored by those of the performers with whom he creates. Although well educated in many forms, in the art of control and precision, Olivan works not only with the intellect, the head, but with emotion, physicality and love. He seeks to make his work accessible to audiences, combining the power and energy of circus with the harsh reality of the world in which we live. The result is a genuinely stimulating celebration, fantastical yet somehow heartfelt and down to earth.”
