"You need to imagine a white sheet and a number of colorful pens.
Pick any color you like to write anything you want down"
- Miquel G. Font
For the 2023/24 season, Habemus Corpus promotes a new program design in order to establish a direct complicity with theatres/events/festivals that will be able to directly choose different pieces from various styles, artistic lines and also adaptable to the technical and logistical conditions of the programming entity.
BLANK PAGE is a program that includes the collection of some of the short pieces or extracts from large productions created by Miquel G. Font with HC or with other companies and entities in Catalonia and abroad.
Pieces with bold images such as the staging of Norai – duet that has never been seen on the peninsula and that was created by the prestigious cia Scapino Ballet – or two excerpts from the great Aire production, co-produced by Grec 17 – Barcelona Festival, the multi-time duet award of The Red Purse or the homage to Maurice Béjart that G. Font (ex-ballarí de Béjart) created with his own version of the Bolero de Ravel.
A total of 12 pieces of very different profiles that have the possibility of being presented in individual format for short piece exhibition events (festivals, inaugurations, tributes) or in full evening format where the programmer/director/promotor can choose the pieces represented.

PRE-DESIGNED COMBINATIONS THAT BRING THEIR OWN ONLY DRAMATURGY
For the coming 2023/24/25 seasons Habemus Corpus proposes three possible collections already pre-designed so that, in addition to being designed for three very different types of spaces, each combination of pieces has a concept and a dramaturgical consistency in common. We have a first program which is very close and introverted, one designed for large stages and events and one of medium format that has the ability to be adapted to different spaces and technical infrastructures.
The three predesigned lines are:
THE VERSATILE MEAN FORMAT THAT FITS ALL
THE RED PURSE
Total duration of 70 min.
Available from September 2023
5 INTIMATE, LONELY, INTROVERTED JOURNEYS... TOGETHER.
Total duration of 50 min.
BIG PIECES FOR BIG STAGES WHERE ALL OF THEM ARE ONE
Total duration of 90 min.
Coming closer to all corners
What HC seeks with this program is to contribute to the dance not being a stage art of elitist approach, but accessible throughout Catalan territory, especially the most remote areas of the large urban centers where there are also from large theaters that do not have continuous programming such as small theaters, athenas or civic centers, etc.
In addition to the presentation of the pieces, the White Charter program includes activities such as post-function colloquiums with members of the company, stage trial visions, classical or contemporary dance master classes, dance initiation activities by the company with the incentive to approximate dance to every audience, etc.
A very important factor in the White Charter is that, unlike other productions that can be programmed, according to the programme's initial philosophy, in the economic field, it is the most affordable and adaptable to each case of programming from really low prices or with public aid per percentage.
