The work is rich in technique and content and is based on a continuous investigation of new languages.

REVIEWS ON THE WORK OF THE COMPANY
“COORDENADAS” challenges three performers (excellent accomplices of the pact) to inhabit a conceptual universe, humanize it, dissociate and be landscape … In an experimental edge, where the dance is preamble, excuse and link.
An intelligent and full proposal, that breathes to the beat of a virgin face of the spectator “.
María Rogel (MILK & HONEY | Plat)
“Irene immersed us in a physical world around our skin, our own body periphery, everything that is (re) presented to the outside world. The play with the materials, and the choreographic vocabulary of the performers, enveloping and attractive, made us live an artistic experience that we remember as one of the most special of the year. Contemporary author dance. Research language. Concepts that go beyond. Body and breath. Very stimulating. “
