Between Barcelona and New York, Marcos Morau studied photography, movement and theatre. He builds worlds and imaginary landscapes where movement and image meet and shadow one another. For over ten years, Marcos has led La Veronal, as director, choreographer, and set, light and wardrobe designer. He’s travelled the world presenting his productions at festivals, theatres and international venues.
Apart from his work with La Veronal, Marcos Morau is regularly invited by numerous companies and theatres to develop new creations, always half way between scenic arts and dance, with special attention to dramaturgy.
As the youngest National Dance Award winner in Spain, his language is part of a heritage, from abstract movement and physical theatre, blended together in a surrealist and dark amalgam. A powerful body language based in the annihilation of any organic logic, dissecting movement and making it into a unique identity.
His work is presented and supported by major theatres and international festivals, Avignon Festival, Sadler’s Wells, Rome Europe, Tanz imAugust among many others. Marcos Morau is also a guest choreographer in many top international companies: Nederlands Dans Theatre, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, Göteborgs Operans Danskompani and Ballett Zurich to name a few.
His latest pieces for La Veronal, Opening Night (2021), Sonoma (2020) or Pasionaria (2018), reflect human beings of today, before their fears, questioning the world and the world and their destiny.
