1. Wine or grape (11 min short film)

The Wine or grape? proposes this collaborative short film in the key of dance, the result of an express workshop lasting three intensive days, shot in different locations in Logroño and its surroundings during the seventh FIVER edition within the framework of the 2018 festival. The performance is carried out by twelve artists chosen through a national call for aid to training

2. Melee 2.0 (8 min short film)

This short film made in collaboration with the Biennial of the Arts of the Body, Image and Movement of Madrid and with the Ídem / La Casa Encendida festival is focused on choreographic creation and audiovisual dance with participants with and without functional diversity. In the choreographic area, by Jordi Cortés, we worked on listening and collaboration, improvisation and intuition, to highlight the importance of diversity in groups and the dynamics that are created in them when it is enhanced; In the audiovisual area, Esteban Crucci opened his gaze towards the body and the choreographed material, passing through the elements of audiovisual language applied to the discipline of dance. It is not the linear recording of a choreography: the camera investigates movement, in a diverse way and integrating different bodies in such a way that the camera / body link entails a new space / time concept.

3. I love maids for unreal (Maids) (5 min short film)

Inspired by Augusto Monterroso's The Maids, this humorous short film that shifts between fiction and film dance features a dancer who embodies the voices of two stereotypical radio soap opera lovers who plot to murder her. In a circular sequence shot shot in a theatrical space, a universe of its own is created where the objective is revealed as subjective and the body struggles to represent the intangible. And the question arises: Where is the boundary between what belongs to the mind and what is externalized?

4. Dancer (15 min short film)

Nominated for a Goya Award for Best Fiction Short Film, with ten nominations for the 2019 Fugaz Awards and selected for the official section of the Chilean Lebu International Film Festival, this 15-minute production is defined in three words: A war. A girl. A dream.

5. Babelian Circles (5 min short film)

Babelian Circles is an immersive and hypnotic piece where music and dance trace a sinuous journey through a solemn desert landscape with a surprising and cryptic plot: «I walked a path alone. I witnessed the silence of the landscape. I measured space with gestures and circled time. I melted my feet on the ground and raised my arms to the sky. I became a tiny ant and disappeared before the eyes of the world. FIVER DANCE Festival (Madrid) (2019)
