AVENIDA CORRIENTES is the story of celebrated German choreographer Dieter Geier and his Argentinian principle dancer and muse Augusto Garcia, who return to Buenos Aires - the place of their first meeting - to create a new piece for a gala in honour of their 10-year collaboration. The events and routines of their savage and passionate world are revealed, as the two artists struggle towards the premier of their new work, and a decision which will change everything, forever.
Alan Øyen continues his collaboration with actor/director Andrew Wale and dancer Daniel Proietto on this play, set in an apartment on Avenida Corrientes - Buenos Aires' famous street of theatres.
Drawing on inspiration from dance biographies, films and documentaries, this play, written by Wale and Øyen, is a passionate love story - a triangular relationship between a dancer, a choreographer and their work.
During the process of putting together AVENIDA CORRIENTES, the company decided to make a 'documentary' film about the two central characters. Eventually, this made it's way on to the stage (projected on a 9 x 4 metre screen), and has become an integral part of the play.
To make the 'documentary' Winter Guests travelled to Argentina, where the Buenos Aires dance scene opened it's doors and it's hearts to the artists, offering them locations and talents beyond their expectations - the home of ballet director Guido de Benedetti, onstage and off at Teatro Argentino and a special appearance by acclaimed choreographer Oscar Araiz.
