Pere Faura, born in 1980 in Barcelona, graduated from the School for New Dance Development in Amsterdam (SNDO) in 2006, and his graduating piece won the ITS Festival Award and was selected for the DansClick tour all around The Netherlands. That same year he became resident choreographer at Frascati Theatre in Amsterdam, where he created most of his works, presented internationally, and in 2009 received the prestigious Price Charlotte Köhler Prijs. After graduating from the Amsterdam Master of Choreography in 2011, he returned to Barcelona where he continued developing his work in different creation centers in the city, as well as collaborating with other artists like Iñaki Alvarez, Joan Escofet, Aggtelek or Desilence Studio, among others. Pere Faura’s work is based on the appropriation of elements of pop culture, such as striptease, disco, musicals or porn, which he remix into a new multidisciplinary choreography combining all the elements of the theatrical convention. Apart from his work as a maker, he’s also involved in programming activities and designing new contexts for artistic exhibition by being a member of the collective ARTAS (ARTistas ASociados a La Poderosa) and a founding member of G.R.U.A. (Grup de Recerca d’Universos Artístics) together with Claudia Solwat and Anna Rubriola.
