“Scenes of Childhood”, with music by Frederic Mompou (Barcelona, 1893-1987), is the first production of El ballet imperial de la reina Rosamunda, a new dance company for all audiences founded by the members of La companyia del príncep Totilau.
Our work in the world of children’s dance began with the direction and dramaturgy of “Petruixka”, by Igor Stravinsky, produced by El Gran Teatre del Liceu (seasons 2011/12/13), with the interpretation of the company IT Dansa and the choreography of Catherine Allard.
From this experience, we started, with much of the same artistic team, a new dance company, with which we created “Scenes of Childhood”.
In this show we take a tour of various piano works by the great Catalan composer Frederic Mompou and, following the spirit of his music, we intend to show the most important values of childhood: freedom, joy, humor, simplicity, imagination, game and innocence.
With this new proposal for children’s dance we want to bring contemporary Catalan dance and, also, the music of Frederic Mompou to contemporary children.
