MARCOS MORAU Choreographer Marcos was born in Valencia, Spain. He studied choreography at the Institut del Teatre de Barcelona, the Conservatorio Superior de Danza de Valencia, the Choreographic Centre of Teatres de la Generalitat Valenciana, and Movement Research in New York, where his final project obtained the school’s highest scores. In recent years he worked as a choreographic assistant with the Nederlands Dans Theater II and the company IT Dansa. His artistic skills are not limited to dance and extend into disciplines such as photography and drama, having earned a Master’s Degree in Drama Theory while assisting choreographer Cesc Gelabert. In 2005 he created La Veronal, a company of artists working in dance, film, and theatre. The artistic team’s purpose lies in a constant search for new expressive media. Taking from varied cultural reference—cinema, literature, music, and photography—La Veronal seeks to build a strong narrative language with the intention of forming global art spaces that shape the inner world of their pieces. Marco’s many awards include First Prize at the choreographic contest of Madrid, the Fira de Tàrrega prize, a special award from MasDanza Maspalomas International Choreographic contest, a prize at the International Choreographic Contest of Copenhagen, a special mention in Huesca’s International Dance Fair, and a special appearance at the International Biennial of Young Artists from Europe.
