Try out daring ideas, solve unexpected situations, fail without fear … This workshop challenges you to confront your inner demons and step out of your comfort zone. Because Los Informalls are convinced that we need more places and opportunities to let go, have fun and lose our minds: “if everyone danced more, the world would be a better place”.

The techniques, tools and approaches they use have been developed based on years of experience in improvisation and stage performance. They provide a comfortable and safe environment, where everyone can experiment without judgement, with the body as a tool and physicality as a medium.

We use our workshops as a platform to introduce people in our world of understanding dance and performing arts and how we approach creation and practice as dancers, performers and artists. The body as a tool and physicality as a channel are our main focuses but depending on the context and on the audience, these topics are approached differently. Our goal is to create a comfortable environment free of judgement in order to allow the participants to get confused so they can step out of their comfort zone by practicing different ways of being, standing and moving: “to do what they don’t know how to do, as if they knew it”.

Our training includes a variety of elements from the pure physicality of dance, acrobatics and breakdance to music, singing or theater, all of it within the framework of improvisation.

Luis García and Pere Joseph are “Los Informalls”, a multidisciplinary performing arts company that moves between dance, theater and the unknown. It represents a lifestyle based on movement, humor and social upheaval, while defending an art that is accessible and sensitive at the same time.

Its creators transform their existential thoughts into actions that share what is simply human in each scene. They are two professional improvisers, multipurpose Swiss army knives, decathletes of art and life, who love to play with the limits of social conventions and what is politically correct. They have shared their work in festivals and events such as La Mercé, Deltebre Dansa, Danseu Festival, Centro Botin, Festival Hop, Free Bodies, Teatro Pradillo, Descalzhina, L’Animal a l’Esquena or Teatre Lliure among others.
