"An unbearably strict dancer tries to initiate one of his pupils, exceptionally untalented, to an amazingly very contemporary ballet...is he going to succeed?"

With and by: Jordi L. Vidal and David Vossen in collaboration with Louis Spagna

This performance was created in Belgium thanks to
Espace Catastrophe, « Summer-Studios » program at Rosas-Parts, the rehearsal residence at La Roseraie and the coproduction of CAR Centre D’Arts De La Rue Ath.

Oxymoron Press Reviews
L'Avenir Luxembourg. Benoît GUEUNING. 13 July 2009
“Oxymoron and its irresistible choreographies delivered by two burlesque dancers.”

La Libre Belgique. Laurence Bertels. 23-09-09
“Jordi Vidal ” artist with an extended international professional background, that does not hesitate to shake up some rigidities of the contemporary dance. »

Feria FETEN. Cusamaco. March 6, 2011
The piece « Oxymoron » presented in Gijón by Cia. Jordi L. Vidal, is interesting because of the combination of dance theatre and clown, leaned on the daily life gestures, with a certain amount of improvisation and the use of the public space from the subtle and the small.

Feria FETEN. Artezblai. February 2011
A show that, as the literary figure tell us, includes the combination of two opposites, that is transmitted through contemporary dance technique applied to everyday gestures with a dash of humour

La Xarxa. Universitat de Barcelona. October 2008
The Catalan artist will come to ETC, as a resident choreographer, to present an open rehearsal of his two last works: “Oxymoron” and “Piano Fortissimo”. Two original and surprising pieces, a hybrid that combines dance, physical theatre, performance, circus and clown.

October 2008. Andrea Tamagnini. Festival Calanchi San Marino.
Here we can appreciate how the precise dance technique applied to daily movements can create emotion through a clever use of humour, producing a very well dosed cocktail that leaves the audience with a pleasant and surprising taste

March 2012, Antic Teatre Barcelona
It made me laugh, and this is a lot

June 2012, Festival Champetre CH
A contemporary ballet with a assured comical effect
