Culturhaza. Agripino and Protasia
Culturhaza is a creative project by Protasia Cancho and Agripino Terrón where life, thought and work occur in the naturalness of the days waiting for the earth and the word to bear fruit.
It is right there in that conjunction of the "fertile" where the possibility of creative thinking generates and articulates the different actions that will give way to the various artistic manifestations of which the Culturhaza collective is a producer (happening, performance, video creation, poetry, music, etc.), all of them under the common denominator of “Agrolandart”. And naturally, the poetics of the land is recreated and regenerated in Culturhaza from the agricultural work itself as a way of existence and vital resistance, which finds its expressive foundation in the origins of the European Land Art example of coexistence between art and nature.
In the extratemporality of art, tradition and contemporaneity coexist to offer us the strangeness of everyday life in a haza where the work of the countryside is transformed into islands, paths, haicus, doubts and thoughts wound into balls, through the farmer's own mechanisms and processes .

Las Kellys with Jordi Claramonte and Sara Reyes Acosta
The Kellys, an Association of floor maids, the name comes from a popular pun: "the Kelly, the one who cleans"; In our case we clean hotels.
The action that we present with Jordi Claramonte, deals with a practice of scenic research, a device that is defined in the action, in concrete actions. It is a relationship space that focuses more than on what we do, on the ways of doing what we do. This practice of corporeal research is the starting point to find ourselves in a space of thought and a diverse and common body, to value what we do and to bring thought closer to the body.
Placing ourselves in terms of scenic practice is the decision to value both the amateur bodies of the maids and to question the artistic criteria of the dance itself. Opening this common space together we investigate the possible ways of doing, of moving, of looking, of being. From the minimum actions (O. Cornago) such as walking, looking, listening, wishing, imagining, we want to move our desires to the body, approach our presents with subtlety. We intend to open a common space governed by other codes, of greater intuition, spontaneity and care, given the immensity, atrocity and violence of our life, work and experiential spheres. From these minimum actions, we also make decisions, as important as the others, about where we want to be and how we want to place our bodies in space.
