Lion’s Jaw is a performance and dance festival founded in 2016 by New Movement Collaborative in Boston.
Now in its 4th year, the event continues to feel necessary and inspiring and NMC has decided to open the door internationally by organizing a smaller more intimate Lion’s Jaw in Europe.

Where: NunArt Guinardó, Carrer del Telègraf 67-71, 08041 Barcelona, Spain

When: July 25-28 2019

Curated and directed by international artist Gisela Creus in collaboration with NunArt, the aim of LJBCN is to create bridges, start conversations, and open possibilities between artists and their communities.
The Festival assembles a group of national choreographers, performers, educators and students to study, perform and create together for duration in an intensive environment. For 4 days, every day, from 9:30 am until 9:30 pm, Lion’s Jaw runs inside of a dedicated space utilizing multiple studios/spaces to foster the exchange of ideas, daily rigorous technical training and inter-disciplinary exploration to provide dance-artists tools and pathways into new ways of engaging with dance as both research and performance.
Anchored by one intensive, each day includes a workshop and laboratory in improvisation, technique and composition. In the evenings, artists, students and audiences share their knowledge and inspiration through round tables, informal showings and performances.
