The work ‘Movimiento’ wins the contemporary artistic creation scholarship from the Castilla y León Foundation in the province of Segovia.

It is said that throughout the journey of our lives, all human beings share a feeling of longing; deep within, we feel the absence of something. From our birth, we live in a kind of future, always learning and preparing for tomorrow, leaving behind our “original self,” our roots, the connection with our most primal self.

This project allows me to delve into the understanding of what Castilla is, the land where my life began, how it has influenced the path I have already traveled, and how to continue my journey consciously from a place of knowledge. There is nothing more primitive than sound and movement, and from this perspective, my project emerges. Castilian sounds as the conception of the work, professional musicians who live for creative exploration, and a trained body dedicated to dance to visually convey the message.




This project will depict the universality of what makes us human by showing how folklore is the product of the land – a land that was already there and will continue generating something new – through my own experience in Castilla and the study of its traditions.

The chosen vehicle will be movement through Pau’s body, the context will be music, and within all of this, rhythm, cycle, pattern, and proclamation will shine. The ancestral.

All of this will be examined through the lens of the present, looking towards the future, keeping the flame alive while adding new fuel.

The team is composed of seven prominent professionals and artists with a strong Castilian presence, as four of the seven members were born and/or reside in Castilla, two more reside in the Madrid region of our “Parque Natural de Guadarrama,” and Pau hails from Barcelona.

The Projet

I’m Victor Correa, born in Segovia (1977) and a musician.

My professional journey primarily focuses on creative, improvised, and contemporary music, often associated, but not limited to, what is known as “Jazz.” Open to learning from life’s offerings and in contact with various traditions and styles, my career unfolds with music as a means of understanding the Universe and our role within it.

With a long history in performance and teaching, I have, over time, felt that I’ve reached a musical maturity that provides me the serenity to experiment and explore the realm of creation.

As a composer, my intention is to give voice to the depth of the human experience, to the ineffable, embodying the guide to experiences and sensations that may perhaps transform and inspire others in the grandeur of art.

Hailing from a small village in the Castilian mountains and from a working-class family, I have been influenced by the land from my earliest years. I’ve been fascinated by how the world resists change, perhaps particularly in our region, and bewildered by how culture, art, and expressions born from daily labor are seen, in rural areas, as a challenge to the established order.

I propose a return to the ancestral from my personal perspective: a Castilian who had to migrate to Madrid for education, later to Barcelona for specialization, passing through New York or Rotterdam to broaden my studies and experiences, spending several years maturing in Mexico, and finally returning, twenty years later, with the intention of re-establishing my roots in the land of my birth.

The round trip signifies an evolutionary change in mindset, as several wedges have entered my mind, opening spaces that were previously nonexistent, providing a new perspective that I want to capture because it is of interest to Castilian society.

The project’s concept involves the creation of a multi-disciplinary and audiovisual artistic object, combining various techniques: theatrical, musical, conceptual, spatial, dance, movement, improvisation, interaction, experimentation, and more.

We will argue with the physical movement of the body as an expressive language, using music as a spatial vehicle, an emotional and aesthetic context. We will delve into the ancestral cadence of the land’s rhythms and folklore, its connection with the territory, the ground, the sky, nature, and the society it contains. We will examine traditional instruments, structures, and rhythms to bring them into our world from tradition while keeping a firm eye on the cutting edge of time.

I am interested in the study and experience of society as a generator of unconscious beauty, and I am passionate about how order emerges from chaos. I want to explore the Castilian idiosyncrasy: the solitude of the rural world, the peace of our natural spaces, the rugged treatment, honesty, austerity, humility, and industriousness of Castilians.

Once the ensemble is chosen, we will begin to explore rhythms, both those consciously or unconsciously generated by humans and those produced by nature itself. If one pays attention, nature is full of sounds: villages, paths, rivers, trails, forests, meadows, roads, livestock, etc. All of these provoke and foster the emergence of rhythms that sometimes synchronize into small pieces of spontaneous music. “Rhythm and Movement” will be the two pillars upon which the entire work is built.

Pau’s body will be the physical embodiment of movement, a natural instrument in the service of language, the visual tool that conveys the discourse. Melody will be imagined from the ancestral but, above all, we will seek maximum expression with the minimum possible, exploiting silence as a discursive element similar to the space on the stage. Improvisation will be the means of construction: I will be surrounded by the best creators specifically chosen for this project.

Over the past three years, and after a long period of neglecting its existence, I have become interested in Iberian-origin music, its influence on Latin American music – especially in the Caribbean, Brazil, and Mexico – and on the Iberian and American folklore. This interest has been on a compositional and formal level; Iberian and Latin music has been a part of my career from its earliest beginnings.

These influences will lead us to the superimposition of rhythms and styles that can be layered as totems, creating different textures, to modal melodies from folklore that we will twist into less-trodden paths, or to the ancestral rhythmic component of the land: the connection with the heartbeat and physical functions of the body, with the daily activities of life.

I will arrange meetings with the entire team where we will work and experiment with concepts and ideas, try things out, engage in discussions, and learn from each other. Knowing how far we can push the boundaries, we will make any necessary adjustments.

After maturing through these meetings, there will be a concentrated period of several days to make the final adjustments to the work before delivering everything that each of us can contribute to it before the premiere.
