EYAS Dance Project is a contemporary dance company that was founded in 2015 by co-directors, choreographers and dancers Carlos González and Seth Buckley. Our goal as artistic directors is to share our own creative language and also enrich our work by collaborating with different international dancers, choreographers, musicians and other artists that we admire and that inspire us.
Since its foundation, EYAS has presented works in numerous theaters, festivals, competitions and other events in Europe and Asia. In July 2018, after several years working in Germany, we moved our company to Madrid, where we continue producing and developing our work. We are dedicated to sharing our language through performance, choreography and teaching.
Our proposal as a company is a physical and sensorial dance, which does not need a dramaturgical or theatrical thread as an essential resource. We believe in the ability and power of pure dance to speak and transmit on its own. We work with the interpreters as a team and enjoy challenging the limits and habits of the dancers, encouraging research, introspection and continuous reinvention.
Our interest as choreographers is in pure movement research and we approach our creations from a physical world. We focus on layering information into the choreography, using tools such as fantasies, textures, form, sensations, changing physical stories, volume, gestures, delicacy and explosiveness. We aim to enrich the skills of the interpreters and encourage exploration of a broader physical experience that is capable of connecting with others using our body's natural empathic proprioception, through the magic that happens when the audience is observing the dancers experiencing a physical or emotional sensation.
“I became a dancer because of my desire to fly.”
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
