Support to artistic creation
Part of R.O.P.A.’s activity is to support artistic creation with the accompaniment in the artistic creation process of companies from all over the world. Olivan’s tour around the world has clearly marked his way of understanding it. His perception implies breaking away from the idea of the artistic disciplines as immovable and rigid fields. It is an adaptation to new needs, that leads us to transgress the limits and look for new bodily and emotional expressions.
Artistic creation with Roberto Olivan
Olivan’s artistic career starts at the Institut del Teatre in Barcelona and P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels.
He took his first steps as a professional dancer at Rosas dance company, directed by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. He also performed under the direction of renowned directors such as Robert Wilson, Tom Jansen and Josse de Pauw.
Since then, Olivan has created commissioned works for more than 100 dance companies, universities, dance institutions and schools in more than 50 countries around the world. A long artistic career that supports all those companies that need an external eye. l’Obrador – Espai de Creació becomes a meeting point where to offer this support to the artistic creation for those companies that need guidance in their creation process.
