Nierka, it's a new fully-staged multidisciplinary work, created by visual designer
Tupac Martir and choreographed by Fernando Hernando Magadan.
Premiered at the Peacock Theatre in London on January 14th 2012.
It combines music (electronic, orchestra, post-rock and opera), contemporary dance,
puppetry, video, lighting, old and new technologies.
The script is written by Tupac Martir with music composed and performed by Austin
TV and NSM PSM, the choreography is by NDT Choreographer Fernando Hernando Magadan.
The performance consists of three acts depicting the rite of passage of a human being.
The play develops in the imagination of the protagonist, a dialogue between his conscious
and his subconscious, allowing the imagery within it to portray his emotions.
... 'Nierka' is a highly extraordinary piece that transcends most of the common theatrical boundaries,
bringing a myriad of different arts together to create a more substantial, a more impressive, a more emotional whole.
... A stunning display of dance, and physical theatre supported by spectacularly versatile display of light,
sound and technological artistry.
An exquisite blend of contemporary dance, music, and visual arts, Nierka, depicts the tale of human self-discovery.
The director leads us through the human right of passage effortlessly blurring the boundaries between movement, light,
imagery, sound and theatre.
