GN | MC have been developing their own artistic language through movement and constantly redefining themselves while searching for new contexts and territories for dance. Their artistic work continues to pass over a wide range of progression.
“Our approach to dance reconfigures from one project to another, with every work achievement it becomes a learning process where we discover new places to explore, that later on lay out into a specific language and contour.”
Guy Nader and Maria Campos have a common ground in their individual approach to dance, where both look for a high demanding physicality aiming to push the body into its limits. Seeking for strength and delicacy of their own bodies, they allow a whole spectrum of imaginary to rise, discovering and providing an endless body landscape. Together they have drawn a common interest in the partnering work where they experiment new ways of approaching the relation between two or more bodies, developing strategies and tasks in order to provide the body a distinct image and perception.
Guy Nader was awarded with the first prize in Masdanza International Festival in 2010 with his solo WHERE THE THINGS HIDE.
