Marcos Morau

Choreographer | artist-in-residence

Between Barcelona and New York, Marcos Morau studied photography, movement and theatre. He builds worlds and imaginary landscapes where movement and image meet and shallow one another. The committee of National Dance Award in Spain appreciated his creative language as part of the heritage, from abstract movement and physical theatre, blended together in a surrealist and dark amalgam. A powerful body language based in the annihilation of any organic logic, dissecting movement and making it into a unique identity.

For over ten years, Marcos runs La Veronal, as director, choreographer, and set, light and costume designer. He’s traveled the world presenting his pieces at festivals, theatres and international contexts, La Veronal was invited several times to Berlin to perform in the Schaubühne Berlin, Hebbel am Ufer and the festival Tanz im August. Apart from his work with his own company, Marcos Morau is an invited artist for various companies and theatres to develop creations. He has collaborated with the Nederlands Dans Theatre, Ballett Zürich, Ballet de l'Opéra de Lyon, Göteborgs Operans Danskompani, Grands Ballets Canadiens among many others.

His recent pieces for La Veronal, Sonoma (2020) or Opening Night (2021), reflect human beings of today, before their fears, questioning the world and their destiny.
