TACH: about… All the dancers from TACH company are recent graduates of RCPD Mariemma. A group of young professionals works enthusiastically to embody the idea we are all passionate about: to keep on working together and start an independent project to develop our potential and characteristics further, because our group-personality is what makes us so special as a crew. We are talking about a young and inspired group, taught and formed by well-known professionals with a wide experience in scenic and teaching practice. Our trainings in Graham, Release techniques as well as Contact Improvisation with Christine Tanguay, Oscar Lozano, Jose Reches and Pedro Berdayes were always accompanied by Antonio Chamizo’s ballet classes and Iyeingar Yoga technique. In 2011 troop participated in David Zambrano’s classes gaining Fly Low technique experience. During last 2 years our troop was presenting the Contemporary Dance Department of RCPD with the following pieces: “I Don’t Know” – new production directed by Jose Reches. Premiere took place in Teatre Madrid in March 2010. Together with Conser&Lab Project, under the guidance of Jose Reches and in collaboration with DT Espacio Escenico a premiere of the “I Don’t Think About Dolls and Love Letters” piece took a place in May 2010. In 2011, Pedro Berdayes, the choreographer (National Dance Award winner, “10&10” and “Kytatioh” troops founder) presented his production – the “Shine on” directed specifically for TACH troop. In such a manner he dips in his distinct, idealized, minimalistic, honest, specific scenic searching. The new “Shine-On” was premiered on Teatre Madrid in March 2011 and also in RESAD. Together with Conser&Lab Project Pedro Berdayes continued his cooperation with DT Espacio Escenico by performing “Hueso de Elefante” and “Zone” in their theatre. In October 2010 both Jose Reches and Pedro Berdayes worked on “Chello&Chairs” jam-improvisation for the 1st ExpoDanza event opening. After the graduation our group worked under the name of Kytatioh performing the improvisation piece “Dandelion” in association with La Tabacalera In general, TACH is a very well-formed, creative and confident group consisting of 6 girls and 3 boys whose common course is complemented by personal experiences and achievements each of us gained before becoming a part of the group.
