Baal is a dance company working on the hybridation of languages, ranging from contemporary dance, dance theater, performance, and technology in order to create performing arts projects, mostly dedicated to children and youth, that can be carried out in theaters, schools, as well as in non conventoional venues or museums.
The company was founded by Catalina Carrasco and Gaspar Morey in 2013 in Majorca, Balearic Islands. Their main focus being on creation through research and experimentation, as well as on provoking social, community, and educational projects.
Our work is filled with transverse lines connecting different points, to create a language that does not obey the normativity, but analyses it. We intend to detach ourselves from conventionalism, to distill our own language through the exploration of the physical, social and emotional body.
Our pieces are articulated through political and poetic contents, from the observation of the territory, the gender, the violence, the love and the freedom.
We are increasingly addressing young audiences, trying to enrich their cultural landscape, in order to nurture and arouse at least curiosity.
