THE EYES OF THE BRIGDE – LA TRAVESÍA,

Choreographed by Inés Boza, Senza Tempo (Spain/Catalonia)

Right at the birthplace of the industrial revolution, stand the bridges of Castlefield at the junction of the first canals. What have they seen, what have they witnessed during all these long years? “Any place has a history, lots of histories to count”…and La Travesia (The Cross Roads) adds a new chapter.

Inés Boza is the Director of Senza Tempo, Spain’s leading exponents of open air dance, who have been frequent visitors to Manchester, premiering two of their previous works here in Castlefield. She has been commissioned by Urban moves to work with six British dancers to create a new site specific work for the festival.
