Marina Mascarell Martinez

Marina Mascarell (Spain, 1980) studied Pedagogy applied to Dance at the Rey Juan Carlos University, where she reached her Master’s Degree in Performing Arts. She danced for years with Nederlands Dans Theater 1 and 2, and the Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet.

In 2010, when still dancing with NDT 1, she created a choreography for the UpComing Choreographers program of that company, and later that year the award winning piece Like an Olive Tree for Dance Forum Taipei.

Since 2011 Marina is a freelance choreographer and a resident artist in Korzo. That year she presented the short piece The Eyes History in the CaDance festival and created Today Your Black Shoes Are Grey for the program Here we live and now. It was followed by the full-length productions The Unreality of Time (CaDance Festival 2013) and "it is like a large animal deep in sleep" (CaDance Festival 2015).

As a guest-choreographer Marina has created works for Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, Kannon Dance Saint Petersburg, Ballet Junior de Genève, Skånes Dansteater in Malmö, GöteborgsOperans Danskompanie in Gothenburg and Le Ballet de l’Opéra de Lyon.

In 2015 Marina received the BNG Bank Dance Award for Excellent Talent, and one year later she was nominated by the Dutch dance field for the Prize of the Dutch Dance Festival.

Interlude
In the short dance film Interlude, the main character battles for her ideas with strength and vulnerability. She dances for acceptance through the loneliness her passion sometimes brings. The film was shown at numerous international festivals and won the award for Best Choreography at the Film Art Dance Festival in North Carolina.

Take a look into the studio of Marina Mascarell during the rehearsal process of Three Times Rebel. Marina has a unique talent for translating her social commitment into dance in an expressive and poetic way. For this new performance, she and her dancers delved into the extensive history of women’s emancipation and was confronted with frustrating structures of exclusion, (symbolic) violence and gender inequality. Prejudice, discrimination and stereotyping are still very much a part of life in 2017. To live music by Yamila Ríos, the five dancers undermine these issues with verve.

Young Men
With the landscape of Northern France as décor, Young Men shows the destruction of war in the young lives of soldiers. The dancers of BalletBoyz make palpable that which cannot be said and bring the terrors of the First World War close by.

Rosa Luxemburg, Virginia Woolf, Frida Kahlo, and Indira Gandhi: they all fought for equal rights and opportunities for women. At the beginning of the 21st century there is no reason to see the process of emancipation as completed. Equal opportunities are still out of reach for women in many countries and in some areas. Some attainments are even under threat because of the economic and social crisis. But could it be that in a world desperate for new paths, women could open new perspectives? This Super Lecture gives a new recent view of the history of women’s emancipation. Afterwards you will be seeing the newest performance by the Spanish Marina Mascarell who was inspired by women’s emancipatory history. To live music by Yamila Ríos, five powerful dancers undermine prejudice, stereotypes, and discrimination.
