The Contemporary Dance Company, caraBdanza, was founded in 2007 under the artistic direction of Gonzalo Díaz in Madrid.
The work developed from the outset by the Company is located in an internal state , in which each person involved is in contact with oneself emotions, history, ideas, and also connects with the environment.
Gonzalo Díaz in his work as a of choreographer develops the idea of a work of personal creation with interdisciplinary elements, this work is after finding a language that he creates through contemporary dance, where technique finds its place of importance. Following this line of work various choreographies are incorporated opening the company to new guest choreographers.
