    The exhibition "Arts of the movement. Dance in Catalonia (1966-2012)" recovers the recent memory of an ephemeral art how is the dance. The dance expresses with the body in movement to disappear all followed. Remain, but, in the choreography and in the dregs that leaves as a bequeathed for those that will continue moving in forward.

    The exhibition puts the accent in this central presence of the body, situating among the cloister the installation Of present body, of the cineasta Isaki Lacuesta: thirst bodies of choreographers interpreters very different, that impose face to face to the viewer, without musician, in black and white recording in 16 mm since the same point of view, each body with his personal characteristics. They are Cesc Gelabert, Angels Margarit, Maria Muñoz, Only Tamper, Andrés Corchero, Thomas Noone and Marta Carrasco in representation of what have been different lines and attainments of the last forty years.

    The installation of Lacuesta purchases a central paper relieving to the claustre of the Saint Arts Mònica and, around this body of the dancer interpreter that has been the authentic protagonist of the choreographies, desmembra in three parts the recent history of the dance in Catalonia. Each part includes, together with the photographies and documents, a video of interviews realised also for Isaki Lacuesta.
