Núria Font, friend and accomplice for many years, was there from the start with her passionate approach to dance and her involvement with audiovisual media. Having Núria with us has given us strength to believe in what we do, to aim to make dance a language and to see the potential in performance, without concessions.
A pioneer of the creation of video-dance, she set up various festivals such as VAD, the Muestra de Video-Danza (Video-Dance Showcase) and IDN, dealing with dance, new media and their relationship with the stage and performance.
Núria died in 2017 and has left a huge gap in our lives, but also the legacy of her rebellion in the face of impossibilities or uncertainties.
When she had a problem she would say: “I can’t go under, I’m more angry than sad.”
Here’s to you, Núria.
May she remain among us: she was wonderful.
