La Casa (The Home) is a large, extensive, diverse and complex project full of ramifications, formats and works, which Aitana has been developing for the last 7 years, in different countries and with different groups of people. This project revolves around an idea of how we create and inhabit common spaces, new families and share intimacy. La Casa asks How to destroy a theater, how to build
a house, us, in a strong together.

La Casa is a search, a deal, an adventure, a voluntary disaster, a practice that denies the “always is never possible.”

La Casa is recycling, accumulation, alchemy, transformation, it is a collective giving birth. The intimacy of touching a space and letting a space touch you.

The art of demolition, the choreography of cementing, the movement of the bird making its own nest, the solidity of the ruins, destruction as a constructive ritual.

Aitana Cordero (ES) is a mover, a curious, a wonderer, a reader, a Gemini, a cook, a mother.

She is 37 but looks like 15, she writes in 3 languages, she would like to paint and climb but she doesn’t, she faints in blood tests almost always but still fantasise, almost every year, with study medicine and become a doctor one day.

She trained many years dance and improvisation. She did Judo intensively in the past and has always been busy with martial arts.
In June 2006 she graduated in her Choreography studies at the SNDO (School for new dance development) in the University of Amsterdam and in June 2008 she finished the Master in Choreography and new technologies Dance‐Unlimited also in Amsterdam.

Since 1999 she creates her own work like dance pieces, theaters plays, installations, performances, films, gastronomic proposals and “things” that have been presented in several cities in Europa, North America and Asia. She also collaborates and performs for others.
She also created works with and for kids and youngters.

Since 2001 she combines her creations and artistic works with teaching in different universities and schools and lately she is a reflective company – a dramaturge in other´s makers work.

Some of the recurring interests in her works are the Body and how it can encounter other bodies, objects, building houses, intimacy, sex(n)uality, the physicality of violence and fighting, strategies of sharing and the exploration of the protocols of theatre. Other relevant interests that use to condition her processes are philosophy, cinema, literature, gender studies, painting and cooking.

Lately she is preparing a marathon, trying to be a pilot, she is back to study martial arts and is again afraid of electric storms.
