Indra Dance Company was born in 2010 as a platform for Daniel Navarro Lorenzo and Anna Borràsto start their careers in the professional art world. Both graduated in 2010 from the professional conservatory of Dance in Barcelona, Institut del Teatre. From there, each of them went on to start their own professional career, working with different international dance companies such as Jasmin Vardimon, Polish Dance Theatre, IT Dansa, Dantzaz, Frontier Danceland and Skånes Dansteater among others. They have also worked alongside big names of the international contemporary dance scene including Ohad Naharin, Akram Khan, Jo Strømgren, Lukas Timulak, Mavin Khoo and many many more. During their careers, they have worked and performed in theatres and Opera Houses such as the Opera of Oslo, Opera of Warsaw, Malmö Opera or Teatro Principal in Burgos (Spain) such as Teatro Victoria Eugenia, Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, Kwai Tsing Theatre, among many others.
Indra Dance Company has become a safe haven for Daniel and Anna to come back together to share and learn from each other, the skills that they have developed through their separate careers. It helps them continue their passion and creativity to form new productions for the company that combines both the experience from the dance companies they have worked with through to their own individual careers as freelancers and for Indra Dance Company.
The way we work depends on the availability of each of us at any given time. We individually do research of the material and develop it into our own choreographic language. We have worked together so long that we have an intrinsic knowledge of each other’s body and our capabilities. Our work also involves the research of appropriate music to suit the dramaturgic aspects and different structures of the piece before several run-throughs and corrections in the presence of a rehearsal director.
