We believe that art enables a space for communion, for coming together with others. It situates itself in reality in such a way that it unsettles, improves, beautifies, agitates, and soothes it simultaneously.

Art is not something separate, untouched, done by others. Art is in everyone; children, him, her, the stone, the sky, the melody, the letters… It constructs us and we construct it, it permeates us and we permeate it.

That’s why we propose an ‘Art Takeover.’

It belongs to us.

Let’s bring it close to us and enjoy it.

To delve more deeply into reality, to understand it better, and in more detail so that it becomes more ‘human,’ more poetic. This implies a space of convergence, of ideas, materials, movements, different people who are transformed in relation to others and their worlds.

Why Akántaros:
We chose the name Akántaros for each rain, for the intensity of each rain, for the gathering inside a jug. And that word implied us in others.

At Akántaros, we pay tribute to Tadeusz Kantor.

To the singer Pablo Guerrero with his album ‘A cántaros’ and his song (‘You and I, girl, we are made of clouds’).

With rain to Juan Gelman and his poem.

The action always takes place here (aká).

We discover the god Thor (Tor, the god of thunder).

Other implications: Pina Bausch measures dance in milliliters. Throughout her career, water has been a fundamental element. The Bosphorus River seems to overflow in the scene from Nefés, the work about Istanbul. Water cascades in Vollmond. The ‘Consagración de la primavera’ was made of swamp, and murky stagnant waters were the setting for Arien. Natural fluids and bodily fluids. Liquid choreographies.
