Jacobo Durán-Loriga (1958) takes on another of the commissions proposed by the Centro Nacional de Difusión Musical (CNDM), which will be performed by the Madrid-based group Modus Novus, directed by Santiago Serrate.
The Centro Nacional de Difusión Musical (CNDM) is committed to strengthening the Spanish repertory of string quartets, as one of the most important and richest channels of musical creation of recent years. To this end, it has commissioned a new piece by the master Antón García Abril, one of the most outstanding composers of his generation.
Theatre and performative practices in contemporary art museums
Reactivate/reinterpret brings together a varied group of specialists from different fields (art history, dance, drama, performance, curatorship) with the idea of analysing the place of performative practices within the realm of contemporary art museums.
Founded in 2008, the young Granada-based group Neoars Sonora will be at the Centro Nacional de Difusión Musical (CNDM) to give the premier performance of two new works: Quasi una serenata by Jorge Fernández Guerra and Aleph, for voice, violin, cello and piano, by the Gerona-born composer Iluminada Pérez.
Guy de Cointet (Paris, 1934-Los Angeles, 1983) is one of the artists that best synthesizes the new relationship between theatre and contemporary art, from the end of the 1960s onwards. His work is based on the hermeticism of language and on art's capacity to invent systems of representation between play and logic.
