Marcos Morau

Between Barcelona and New York, Marcos Morau studied photography, movement and
theatre. He builds worlds and imaginary landscapes where movement and image meet and
shallow one another.
For over ten years, Marcos runs La Veronal, as director, choreographer, and set, light and
wardrobe designer. He’s traveled the world presenting his pieces at festivals, theatres and
international contexts.
Apart from his work with La Veronal, Marcos Morau is an invited artist for various
companies and theatres to develop new creations, always halfway between scenic arts and
dance, with special attention to dramaturgy.
Nederlands Dans Theatre, Ballett Zürich, Staatsballett Berlin, Ballet de l'Opéra de Lyon,
GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, Grands Ballets Canadiens among many others are some
of the companies with which he has collaborated.
As the youngest National Dance Award 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 last pieces for La Veronal, „Sonoma“ (2020) or Opening Night (2021), reflect human
beings of today, before their fears, questioning the world and the world and their destiny.
