With Fet a Mà company and her show CRU Marta Torrents is searching an original and strong physical language. CRU tells a story about human relationships in a sharp and bright style. It is all in the actors faces, their bodies serving to extend the emotion towards fantastic nonsense. As if, just for a moment, one would have the privilege to look inside or through someone else.
BRUT is created on this basis of commitment.
At first the compiling of material is made of improvisations and collective research guided by Marta Torrents.
She claims an intuitive approach of creation which means spontaneous and connected with what we are, theoretically and at the present moment.
« I do not care for virtuosity but rather for truth, humanity, beauty in simplicity, in freedom. »
Certainly another tool of creation will be trance, the repetition of gestures tending towards the bottom of things, towards a pur and authentic state.
Spanish actress and aerobatic performer living in Toulouse, France. Coming from the world of dance, she first trained in Rogelio Rivel's School in Barcelona, Spain, then in Le Lido, Centre des Arts du Cirque de Toulouse, France. She worked within several companies: Circus Kletzmer, Compagnie Trans Express, Cirk'Oblique, before creating her own company, Fet a Mà, assisted by Pau Portabella in 2008. Together they have created the shows « Swap » in 2010 and « Cru » in 2013.
The work of Fet a Mà based itself on a physical interpretation originating from theater, dance and aerobatic carries, beginning from the idea that the body is guided by the necessity of expressing it's feelings by creating a proper language.
A circus cleared of artifices, immediate, where the highlighted body speaks for itself, granting as much attention to the technicity as to the dramaturgy. The technicity disappearing behind bodies and intentions, circus becomes a rough, raw art, affecting all sensibilities, expressing in specific limits situations which look abstact at first sight.
In 2014 and 2015 she works as an actress in « Be Felice » by Compagnie d'Elles. She is also on tour with « Mama, Papa Carnaval » by Cridacompany.
BRUT is her first personal project as a director.
