Agua (water) is an extract of the piece Sentinel that unfolds the four primary components that form our environment: water, earth, fire and air. The piece describes and interprets the different states, shapes and textures that water can take: solid, liquid, gaseous, boiling, flowing, beating. Water can carry life, or sometimes take it away.
Creation and interpretation: Chey Jurado
Music: Diego Garrido
Cultural Promoter: Bernabé Rubio – Rotativa Performing Arts
About Chey Jurado
Spanish dancer-choreographer Chey Jurado started his career as a self-taught dancer in urban styles (bboying, popping and locking). Following his interest for other disciplines, he quickly discovered and learned other more academic styles such as line salsa, pilates and modern dance, never leaving on the side the urban world to which he belonged. He traveled to world scale events, and was acknowledged ‘best dancer’ in many of them : triple REDBULL champion, BC ONE Spain, Best show battle of the year, R16 Spain, etc. To this day, this domain mixing break and contemporary is what characterizes Chey Jurado’s work, and brings him to work with companies such as Lokomamia, Cia Jordi Vilaseca, Rojas y Rodriguez (Titanium) , Cia elias aguirre, Taiat Dansa. He currently directs and choreographs for his own company ’Compañia Senpü’.
