– Anna Borràs and Daniel Navarro have been inspired by the Casa Navàs to adapt Exhale.
– Exhale Casa Navàs will be performed on Saturday 8 July as part of an exclusive visit to Casa Navàs.
Reus, June 26, 2023
The Indra Dance Company, formed by the dancers Anna Borràs Picó and Daniel Navarro Lorenzo, will premiere the show Exhale Casa Navàs. This is a unique revision of the show Exhale, the result of the two artists’ visit to Casa Navàs. The connections and movements that the beauty of this Art Nouveau jewel suggested to the dancers will allow the visitor to rediscover the house through emotions. Exhale Casa Navàs is an exclusive production, created on the occasion of the Domènech i Montaner’s Year, which can only be seen on Saturday 8 July at 8.30 p.m. at Casa Navàs.
Coinciding with the Domènech i Montaner Year, Casa Navàs organises an annual calendar of activities that includes a new initiative every month. For July, Casa Navàs has joined forces with Indra Dance Company to create Exhale Casa Navàs, a show visit that fuses the essence of the guided tour of the Art Nouveau building with the Exhale show. The show, which is the work of Anna Borràs from Reus and Daniel Navarro from Barcelona, toured England, Colombia, and Panama last year. Thanks to this fusion, visitors will be able to connect with the Casa Navàs and its history through the work in movement that the dancers have created for the occasion.
Anna Borràs and Daniel Navarro have let themselves be carried away by the beauty and legacy of the Casa Navàs to adapt a show that speaks of the passage of time and the interpersonal connections that are established between individuals; two concepts very present in this Art Nouveau jewel. The Casa Navàs has witnessed the social transformations that the city has undergone for more than a hundred years, despite remaining practically untouched, and the connections that have been established between those who have lived there, visited it, or shopped at the establishment have been infinite.
Exhale Casa Navàs will consist of an exclusive guided tour with dance pills that Borràs and Navarro will offer throughout the tour of the main floor of the building. The experience will culminate in the old fabric shop with a review of the Exhale show, in which fabrics will play a special role. All this is intertwined with a tasting of Vermuts Miró and a dinner on the terrace, where visitors will be able to interact with the dancers.
Tickets for the two Exhale Casa Navàs performances can be purchased for €39 on the Casa Navàs website, in the building itself, or at the Gaudí Centre Tourist Office. The total duration of the event will be two and a half hours.
Casa Navàs, a work of inspiration for artists
With this action, Casa Navàs opens a new line of action that aims to make the Art Nouveau building available to artists of the territory so that they can create and develop stage productions inspired by the building and Art Nouveau.
